I live just a few miles from Bear Creek Organic Farm, and this is the first I have heard of it.
It’s nice that farming is going on up here again. Regulations killed a lot of the family farms up here, and definitely killed our family orchards.
There isn’t much impact on me directly, as they are selling in markets that most of the true locals can’t afford. However, it doesn’t make me any less proud of what Bear Creek Organic Farm is doing. I hope they will be happy here, and continue to be successful.
Curtis: There shouldn’t be anyone out there complaining about not getting their money’s worth out of a subscription to your “From the Field”..My gosh, I was overly impressed with your video of Vanessa’s microgreen operation, then you went and visited Steven in San Diego, when I thought WOW!, you’ll never be able to top this! And I just finally finished this video with Brian at Bear Creek!!! You’re ‘Crushin’ It” dude!!! I was a bit skeptical when you decided to stop the weekly vlogs, because of the educational value of them. and you sharing so much information on the ‘nuts & bolts’ of your farming operation…So let me tell you….You haven’t lost a beat, and have actually cranked it up a few notches. It’s just a matter of time before you have as many subscribers at From the Field as you did on You Tube. Thanks for doing this!!!
Awesome session Curtis. Worth the price of admission. Brian Bates is a big reason I started my journey into farming after I stumbled on his interview on the Farmer to Farmer Podcast with the late Chris Blanchard (RIP). I recommend anyone look up that podcast, and others on that site. On the F2F podcast back in 2016, Brian talked about starting up Bear Creek Farm, with no-BS approach and with such enthusiasm and clear thinking on lean, small-scale farming, from a business perspective. It was like a breath of fresh air that cut through the Westcoast permaculture fog I was in at the time. Next step for me at the time was Curtis’s book and then I went down the Youtube rabbit hole and haven’t looked back.
This guy is on it !!!! Appreciation for everyone’s time involved in putting this video together. For anyone searching for success in farming , take note of how Brian is dialed into every aspect of every task . Logistics for the win ❤️
