On this episode of “Hobby Farms Presents: Growing Good,” host Lisa Munniksma talks with herbalist, seed enthusiast and Hobby Farms contributor Bevin Cohen. Cohen and his family left city life some years ago to pursue simple living at their 3-acre Small House Farmâ€”only to find his farming whims pulled him right back to the kind of profit-driven lifestyle he was trying to escape.
Hear how Cohen left a marketing career for simpler endeavors in rural central Michigan. Learn about pressing your own cooking oils from nuts and seedsâ€”a fresh, homegrown alternative to grocery-store options. Bevin also tells us about seed librariesâ€”how they work and what they can do for our modern world. And listen in as he recounts some lessons he’s learned while trying to keep things simple (sometimes despite his own homesteading passions).Â
