A Year on the Farm is all about my journey as a female small-scale farmer on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada. This weekly show reveals what life is really like on a small farm and all that we are learning from the land. I share my experience and connect you with other female farmers to learn how to grow beautiful food, manage a small farm, and feed our communities. You can find us at Gather Farm & Kitchen in the Comox Valley, or online at http://www.gatherfarmandkitchen.com
