Christine Dormeier of Heritage Pines Farm on leaving the city to start a small farm in rural Colorado
Have you ever wondered what it's like to move from city life to start a farm?
If so, give the latest episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast a listen.
My co-host, Lauren Manning, chats with Christine Dormeier of Heritage Pines Farm in Peyton, Colorado.
Christine grew up in the suburbs, went to undergrad for business, lived in some of the busiest cities in the world, and is now a small farmer.
In the show, Christine shares how nothing in her childhood or education encouraged her down this path, but as a Taiwanese American immigrant, she is working hard to encourage other Asian Americans to become more aware of agriculture and land stewardship.
Lauren and Christine chat about helpful resources for budding farmers and how the draws of living their small farmer lifestyles have helped them weather the cultural and experiential obstacles along their journeys.
This show can inspire aspiring farmers, encourage new farmers, and rejuvenate seasoned farmers.
Be sure to tune in and check out Heritage Pines Farm to learn more about Christine, her husband, Nick, and their small Colorado farm.
