Rural Routes Podcast
Season 2, Episode 1:
Back to the Farm
A Canadian farmer is on average 55 years old. Not these farmers. Rural Routes hosts Rebecca Cohoe and Bojan Fürst bring you the stories of four young women who run farms in Prince Edward Island, Southwestern Ontario, and near Bologna, Italy. Mary-Ellen Godfrey, Lisa Paganelli, Lindsay Menich, and Katrina McQuail share their experiences of going back to the farm and finding ways to operate their farm businesses in their own way.
