Farmers are often looking for new crops that bring more profit, or perhaps serve other purposes. In this episode, we explore the potential for raising sesame in North Carolina as an alternative crop. Then we turn our attention to the idea of planting a milpa garden and we explain what that is and it's value on the farm.
Rethinking the crops raised on the farm can bring more profit, or improve ways farmers can engage with the local community. These are two examples from Farm Progress editors John Hart from Southeast Farm Press and Jennifer M. Latzke with Kansas Farmer.
