The FARMHOUR airs every Monday from 6-7 pm Eastern time. You can expect to hear live interviews with the farmers and producers of our region, as well as special guests calling in to share agriculture related news, products and research topics. Sometimes we bring the farm to the radio airing what we call "ON the Farm interviews" where FarmHour contributors go to the farms with a handheld recorder and take a break with a farmer or farmhand to have a conversation or get right into the swing of the operation recording the sounds of a farm with a recorded narrative of the action.
We are advocates and we see this program as a collaboration with the farming community . You are invited at all times to generate questions, come visit, ask us to research a topic, cover something of importance. Our approach to content is non didactic, no platforms, no 'best practice' propaganda, rather observations from people working the land.
We welcome all comments, suggestions, questions and anything else you can think of.
