64: Darrin Drake - Peaceful Pastures Story

In Episode 11, we talked to Jenny Drake. Today we talk to her husband to get more details on their story of moving from Indiana to the mountains of Tennessee and building a large successful grazing based and direct marketing farm there. He shares the stressful times, along with the successes and how he prioritized his marriage over his business and how that has helped lead to a long and successful marriage! We also discuss the importance of community in this regenerative ag world and how it was important in his early days of building their farm and how we need to do more of it today. We discuss genetics and how important they are to his business and much more!
