Waylon talks with Donald M. Arrant Jr., he of the best instagram feed ever, about sustainable farming, good hipster careers (right livelihood), mindful meat eating and tickling pig ears.

Glynwood operates a 225-acre farm, which demonstrates sustainable and locally appropriate agricultural practices for the region, while also growing food for the community.Its operations include a 100-share Community Supported Agriculture program, a flock of free range laying hens and meat chickens, and a multispecies grazing operation with cows, sheep, pigs and goats. Glynwood also recently opened a new Farm Store, where Glynwood farm-raised meat and eggs are available for purchase, in addition to other artisanal products from across the region.
