Season Two - Episode One - Arlie LaRoche
Do you know where your food comes from? It’s a question Arlie LaRoche is very passionate in answering. Arlie and her family own and operator Farm One Forty, a holistically managed farm about twenty minutes southwest of Saskatoon. As Farm One Forty's website states, “we are a local, sustainable and natural choice for Saskatoon’s ethical eaters.”
What stands out about Arlie is how passionate she is in educating people, not only in Saskatoon but across the province, about where their food comes from and how her animals are cared for.
Arlie takes YXE Underground host Eric Anderson on a tour of her farm (storm free!) and discusses her love of animals, why she chooses to farm in a holisitc way, and how she copes when it's time to say goodbye to her cows, pigs, chickens and sheep. Arlie also explains what led her and her husband to open Odla, a new restaurant in Saskatoon's Broadway neighbourhood.
This episode also features insight on the Farm-to-Table movement currently taking place in Saskatoon and the province by freelance reporter and author, Jenn Sharp.
