On this episode of our podcast, my co-host, farmer Trish Watlington, producer Scott Higby, and I head to Wild Willow Farm and Education Center. Our guide was farm manager Cat Henning.
Wild Willow Farm is a vibrant working farm located on five acres of land, three miles from the ocean and less than a mile from the Mexican border.
We learned about the wide variety of fruits and vegetables grown on the farm, bees and bugs, sustainability and CSA's. We also got to admire chickens and pet the goats.
