In this episode, we chat with Sylvia Wolters and Alicia Mogler, who both work in public relations for Pipestone Vet Services. Sylvia & Alicia host many events each year, from fairs to trade shows, bringing the farm to the public. Visitors have the opportunity to experience live births and get face to face with pigs, chickens, and more.
Most event visitors are 3-4 generations removed from the farm. Take a listen to how people respond, and what questions they have. We talk about the disconnect the public has from their food sources, and how Pipestone works on informing folks about where their food comes from—really bringing the farm to the people.
Education is essential. Sylvia and Alicia are both passionate about teaching, pigs, and farming. We hope you enjoy this episode and get some new insight on how to start the conversation of farming with the public.
We look forward to your feedback and comments.
