Diane Rosenberg heads up the Iowa organization called Jefferson County Farmers and Neighbors or JFAN. While the rest of Iowa is drowning in hog manure from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, Jefferson County has managed to keep the onslaught at a minimum. Outside the county, JFAN is known for its publications on several CAFO-related topics such as liability for farmers accepting CAFO manure as fertilizer on their properties.

Show Notes

What is Farm and Fiddle?

Farm and Fiddle is the world's oldest radio program covering sustainable agriculture and local food systems. We air every Wednesday evening from 7 to 8 p.m. central time, from KOPN 89.5 fm, Columbia, Missouri. We speak to the best experts in regenerative agriculture, agroforestry, animal husbandry, and cover topics like how to resist factory farms in the neighborhood and what to do if your crop is knocked out by too much or too little rain, or by a neighbor's sloppy poison application.
