    On this show, Pete and Chris will discuss family farms in the U.S. More specifically, they will look at the case of Vernon Hershberger, the Wisconsin dairy farmer who was targeted by law enforcement and dragged through the courts because he wanted to sell healthy foods to people who wanted to buy them from him.

    in News

    On this week’s The Farm radio talk show on the Overthrow Radio Network, host Chris Petherick talks with Laurie Cohen Peters and Liz Reitzig, the founders of Farm Food Freedom Coalition (F3C).


    Chris, Laurie and Liz will discuss local food production in the age of industrial farming, including the tragic case of New York farmer Joshua Rockwood, who was recently arrested and hit with a series of absurd charges because, among other things, his livestock’s water was frozen in the middle of winter and he did not heat his barns.


    Laurie is a co-founder of the F3C and is a member of the Rawesome Food Club in Venice, Calif., which was raided in 2012 by California officials because it specialized in unprocessed foods, including raw milk. Liz is co-coordinator of Grassfed on the Hill buying club, which serves the greater Washington, D.C. area and is co-founder of F3C. She has spent the past six years representing small farms and consumers at the state legislature and in the halls of Congress lobbying for fewer restrictions on farmers.

    On this week’s The Farm radio talk show on the Overthrow Radio Network, host Chris Petherick talks with Lenore Skenazy, the author of the popular book Free-Range Kids.


    Chris and Lenore will discuss, among other things, parenting in the modern age of fear. Topics will include recent cases of parents who have been arrested for merely wanting their children to be independent and self-reliant.


    Lenore, who's been called the world’s worst mom for inspiring parents to raise self-sufficient kids, maintains her own website FreeRangeKids, which offers a good reality check on the constant fearmongering put out by the nanny state.

    Felicia’s Farm

    in Environment

    Sofia Forier-Montes, Manager


    The Felicia Ann Cutler Farm was created to honor the memory of Felicia Ann Cutler. She was dedicated to helping others and her vision was to “feed the people and teach them to feed themselves.” She passed in 2009 but her legacy continues. Felicia’s Farm provides eggs and fresh produce to give a much needed nutritional boost to the homeless and hungry in Tucson. No other nonprofit farm donates all of their produce and very few sources donate protein. Felicia’s Farm donates 100% of the vegetables and eggs produced on the farm to soup kitchens, providing fresh food and protein for those most in need.  I honestly and truly cannot wait to do this interview. This show sponsored by Discount Cab.
