A few months ago the great Poppy Tooker came out for a tour of Mahaffey Farms. She’s the host of Louisiana Eats radio program that airs on WWOZ-FM in New Orleans.
She really knows a lot about farming practices, traditional food production, and heritage breeds! I could have talked to her for hours.
I do feel the need to add that in this radio program she gives the impression I was a Polyface Farms intern. I was not. I have however been to the farm to visit once and a second time for their three day intensive discovery seminar. I have also attended three additional three day classes/seminars taught by Joel Salatin as well as read ALL of his books. That does count for having “studied under” I guess but I would never mislead folks into thinking I had been an intern… That’s a whole other level.
This is a really nice piece on our farm. Thanks to Poppy for everything and all she does to promote the Louisiana culture and food system! Love her work!
