#141: Scaling Up Quickly with Dave Dowling and Running Hills Farm

by | May 26, 2022

Today’s episode features a recent interview with Dave Dowling and one of his course students, Tim Pierce from Running Hills Farm. Tim and Betsy’s Wisconsin farm has seen dramatic growth in the past couple of years, and Tim shares how they have been putting Dave’s teachings into practice on the farm. There’s a lot of great information in this discussion, including some “hacks” for dealing with weather fluctuations in cooler regions. The live interview was originally streamed on Facebook and YouTube, and Tim had prepared some slides of photos that you’ll hear him referencing during the chat. A link to the original interview video that includes the photo slide show is listed below.
