Ep36, Our Right to Farm with Randy Buchler - Permaculture Realized Podcast
This past winter I had the pleasure of visiting my friends Randy and Libby Buchler and their family at their farm, Shady Grove Farm in Michigans Upper Peninsula.
Shady Grove Farm is a small, but productive 2 acre farmstead that produces certified naturally grown eggs, wool, pork, veggies and more for their local community.
In 2009, they recieved a notice for alleged zoning violations regarding their agricultural activity. Through a ton of research and collaborations, they were finally able to win back their Right to Farm in a 2012 court case.
Today Randy Buchler joins us to share their story of how they achieved success. And how Your right to farm is currently under threat due to more recent changes in Michigan's Right to Farm Act. Randy also shares what we can all do to help defend our Right to Farm, and support local farms who are striving, sometimes against many odds, to put healthy, clean, responsibly grown food on your plate.
