162: Innovation Bears Fruit for Family Farm

pm162_goat_150.jpgTour the century-old organic Chaffin Family Orchards where even the animals are “farm hands.” Visit chickens in their egg-mobile, scratching for bugs and pooping fertilizer in the heirloom stone-fruit orchards. Goats chomp off low branches from the olive trees, so no fuel or human labor is needed. This certified predator-friendly enterprise includes 200 acres of olive trees plus various fruit and nut trees; sheep, goats, broiler and egg-laying chickens. They distribute only locally through fruit and meat CSAs (community-supported agriculture), growers markets and a farmstand, providing fresh foods that burst with flavor and nuance.

    Wow! Janaia, this is one right out of the box. 10 out of 10 and a star for you. Chris’ knowledge and enthusiasm comes through in bucketfuls. He and his systems show empathy for the animals and trees and is wonderfully demonstrated by the way he held the chicken and the smiles on the dogs that were looking after the goats in the olive grove.
    It is people like Chris Kerston that are showing the way for the future of sustainable farming. The Chaffin farm has the lot. It integrates with the community, educates its customers, shows compassion and is mindful of the future in the way it goes about its operations for today.
    There’s just one word for this, brilliant!

    Absolutely Inspirational! It was an extreme pleasure to watch this segment & hear Chris explain how the Chaffin farm is organic, sustainable and in harmony with nature. Janaia’s blog entry is a truly lovely read to supplement what’s shared in the video.

    Looks like a lovely harmony between nature and “science”. Congratulations and thank you to the Chaffin family for their stewardship.
