From the Bronx to the Barn
I'm a foodie turned farmer. A Latina baby boomer from the Bronx now raising grass-fed beef in rural Wisconsin. Through From the Bronx to the Barn I invite readers/listeners onto my farm, Bull Brook Keep, and join in my journey from strap-hanger to beef herder. Having grown up in the tenements, subways and museums of the city, I try to introduce topics and experts that bridge city-farmer experiences and values. I tell of my stumbles, dreams and small achievements, and post podcasts of my weekly Deep Roots Radio interviews with farmers, ranchers, chefs, cookbook authors, soil scientists, film directors, policymakers, teachers and others. Their stories make the linkages between our food dollar and taste, nutrition, environmental impact, living wages, and community vitality.
