The Rural Woman Podcast Ep. 13 – Holistic Management with First Generation Farmer Ashley Armstrong

Hi friends!

Thank you so much for checking out this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast. Today I am chatting with my friend and fellow Albertan, Ashley Armstrong.

Ashley along with her husband, Clay, and kids run Armstong Acres, located near Hythe, Alberta. They raise cattle, pigs, meat chickens, and laying hens using holistic management practices. The Armstrong’s are first generation farmers who decided to get into agriculture base solely on wanting to know where their food came from. How hardcore is that?!

We chat about the challenges and learning curves that they have faced being a first generation farming family. Ashley tells us more their holistic management practices used on their farm plus how the whole family gets involved with the farming operation.
