Our first episode features Dan Kuebler and Emily Wright.

Dan Kuebler has been market gardening since 1990, providing a variety of organically grown vegetables and value-added products such as "Farmer Dan's Sauerkraut" for the mid-Missouri area. He is a fixture of the local agriculture scene, having served many years as a board member for both the Columbia Farmers Market and the Missouri Farmers Market Association, co-founder and board chair of Sustainable Farms and Communities, as well as president of the Mid-America Organic Association.


Emily Wright is co-owner and operator of Three Creeks farm in Ashland, Missouri. She and her partner grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, and flowers, and recently began incorporating agroforestry crops and pastured pork into their operation. In 2015, Emily was awarded an NCR-SARE Farmer/Rancher grant for the project, “Assessing Productivity and Profitability of Vegetable Production in the Central Missouri River Bottomlands: Tools for Farm Transitions.”
