Several farms in the North Fork Valley offer pick your produce and fruit options. Sometimes, the attraction is visiting the farm itself, like at the Bradley Farm Stand in Paonia, CO.

This week Gavin Dahl speaks with Colorado Sun reporter Margaret Fleming about the impacts of high prices on Colorado wheat farmers and Montrose Press reporter Anna Lynn Winfrey on how inflation is impacting the Sharing Ministries Food Bank. Plus, Dave Marston from Writers on the Range shares the commentary “Want to Farm? Get a Cash Register.”
