HomeGrown 08/15/10 – Fair Oaks Farms & Preserving Without Freezing or Canning

In what could be its last regularly scheduled show in a nine-year run, HomeGrown this week finds a way to combine the solitary canning of zucchini in the kitchen with the milking of 32,000 cows on a 10-farm dairy operation. Bob and Jeneen talk with Gary Corbett, CEO of Fair Oaks Farms in northern Indiana about his novel operation that takes family farming to a grand scale, while giving visitors a look behind the scenes. Then it’s a stop at Jeneen Wiche’s kitchen for a hands-on look at preserving zucchini and beans the old fashioned way – using vinegar and oil. Downloadable MP3
