Maryland Farm & Harvest



Air Date: December 1, 2020

In this episode, we explore how farms impact the environment. First, we travel to Willow Oaks Farm, where Ecotone has restored the Yellow Branch creek to its natural shape to help prevent erosion and flooding. Then we visit Harborview Farms to learn how cover crops help pull carbon dioxide out of the air and store it in the soil after they die. Next, on “The Local Buy,” Al Spoler heads to Harman’s Farm Market to find out when produce is in season in Maryland and how eating local, seasonal produce is better for the planet. Plus, we explain how water troughs can protect both cows and streams on “The Way it Works,” and we cover the history of organic farming on "Then & Now."

EPISODE 802: Season 8 Premiere

We begin this episode by following the Eco-Goats, a herd for hire that helps clear unwanted weeds and vegetation. Then we visit Deep Roots, Inc., a transitional housing facility that provides fresh healthy meals to its residents using produce grown and donated by Priapi Gardens. Next, on “The Local Buy,” Al Spoler travels to Native Mountain Farm to sample elderberries. Plus, we explain electric fences on “The Way it Works,” and the history of the U.S. Department of Agriculture on "Then & Now."

EPISODE 801: Season 8 Premiere

The new season of Maryland Farm & Harvest starts with a focus on farm machines. First, award-winning hay farmer Glenn Rash shows us how he makes the perfect load of hay bales. Then, we visit Dividing Farm to learn how a high-tech system known as “precision ag” makes the farm more efficient. Next, on “The Local Buy,” Al Spoler visits the Old Wye Grist Mill to see how this over 300-year-old mill grinds wheat from Cutfresh Organics into flour for muffins. Plus, our all-new segment “The Way it Works” goes over the basics of tractors, and we learn the history of farm machinery on “Then & Now.”
