In this informative and moving episode, Farmer Lee Jones speaks passionately about his family farm in Huron, Ohio which was passed on from his late, beloved father.
Why should you listen to this podcast? It’s really simple. We talk about how YOU can be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem when it comes to buying your produce.
We also tell you how your future health can be saved if you start supporting your local farmers NOW.
Another important thing we’ll be going over is Farmer Lee’s direct-to-consumer produce packages you can buy, providing you with quality produce that far-surpasses anything you’ll find at the store. Oh, and they ship directly to your doorstep!

Farmer Lee may discuss why we should be supporting local farmers as much as we can instead of buying commercially-grown produce from the stores, but it doesn’t stop there. Just because you find a local farmer doesn’t necessarily mean their products are local, so be sure to do your research to make sure you’re supporting the right cause.
Why is Farmer Lee different from the others? He doesn’t just believe in sustainable farming, he believes in regenerative farming. What’s the difference, you ask?
Sustainable means just that – to “sustain.” But Farmer Lee believes in thinking far beyond just “the now.” First and foremost, he treats his team with respect and pays them a deserving wage. This gives them a sense of security and a feeling of importance. By doing this, his team has the desire to stay with him and a desire to take part in the future of regenerative farming.
Farmer Lee talks about how the health of the soil is the most important thing when growing anything. Just like we give our bodies vitamins C, D, E and everything we need to remain healthy and strong, seeds need nutrient-dense soil to grow healthy and strong produce. The healthier the soil, the stronger the produce grows, the better chance they have at naturally fighting off disease and insects. This means there isn’t even a need for pesticides!
The vegetables we buy at the grocery store are full of wax, pesticides and GMO’s that are designed to specifically tolerate those harsh pesticides. Then we are the ones who eat them. This is not good for us. Farmer Lee and his team at The Chef’s Garden like to say “pay the farmer now or pay the doctor later.”
COVID has been extremely challenging on so many businesses. Farmer Lee and his team have been struggling to stay afloat because the majority of his customers were chefs. Now that restaurants are not flourishing like they once were, Farmer Lee’s customer base has decreased significantly and he wants to do everything he can to keep his families legacy alive. But it’s less about his family and more about his vision for the future of regenerative farming. If you haven’t already, please visit the link listed above and buy yourself the best-tasting veggies you’ve ever had while supporting an extremely important cause.
