Big shift podcast hits the mark

5 August 2021

 

GREATER Sydney Local Land Services has officially released the second series in its ‘Big Shift for Small Farms’ podcast series, with 11 new episodes now available online.

 

Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitator Richard Stephens said the series had hit the mark with local producers, industry and the community alike.

 

“We’re thrilled with how well the series has been received to date and hope the next series is just as popular with audiences,” he said.

 

“It is currently ranked number four in the Australian charts for a natural podcast and has attracted great interest and feedback among listeners.

 

“It shows us there is a genuine desire for content designed with small farmers in mind.”

 

Mr Stephens said the new series covered a range of topics including building your farm brand, planning for emergencies, pasture and livestock flood recovery, weed management and more.

 

“The Big Shift is all about sharing and growing knowledge amongst all farmers with a focus on sustainable and regenerative land management practices,” he said.

 

“It features candid interviews with farmers, expert insight from industry leaders as well as practical, easy to apply tips and tricks focussed on best practice farm management and what it takes to make that next step, or big shift, to benefit both your land and your business.”

 

Podcast partner producer Edgars Greste of the Grow Love Project said the podcast aimed to strike a balance between farmers' lived experiences, practical tips and industry insights.

 

“It is a real privilege to capture farmers' personal stories. It gives me renewed hope for the future to see farmers building successful businesses that achieve great outcomes for their communities and environment,” he said

 

“It was very moving to hear new farmers Kirsty and Andrew Hambrook share their emotional experience of the 2020 bushfires and the really crucial advice that saved their farm.”
