Welcome to the Urban Homestead Radio podcast!

In this episode, the Dervaes Family interview a long time friend, Chris Kerston, who works for the Savory Institute.  With a longstanding passion for regenerative agricultural and better food distribution systems, Chris has dedicated his life to helping connect ranchers with consumers in ways that create synergistic value for both sides.  Chris has also been recognized as a leader in the emerging agri-tourism market and he facilitated a partnership with a European-based hospitality company and the farm he managed. The resulting farmstays provided urban dwellers a recreational, but also educational, outlet to see first-hand how food could be produced in abundance outside the realm of conventional industrial systems.  Fostering creative solutions to removing barriers of available land and capital will ultimately help cultivate the next generation of holistic land stewards.
