Welcome to The Good Dirt, Episode 22!
In this episode, Mary and Emma sit down with Bridget Jones from Wildberry Farm in Crownsville, MD. Bridget discusses how she and her husband Matt are keeping the family farm alive in creative ways, not only by traditional farming but by combining their marketing and graphic design backgrounds with agritourism. In this digital age, Bridget and Matt prove that growing crops and raising livestock aren’t the only ways to have a successful farm enterprise. This discussion is such an inspiration for anyone who feels drawn to making a living from the land!
