American Family Farmer

The American Family Farmer Show is the weekly voice for small, independent farm owners, as well hobby farmers and all of those interested in eating natural foods that make as few stops as possible from the farm to the table.


10/29/20 - Pigs As Pet's Pandemic

Host and American Family Farmer Doug Stephan begins with that The Old Farmer's Almanac, The Farmer's Almanac and The Mother Nature Network all disagree on how severe our winter will be this year. The National Farmer's Union just conducted this year's event on Zoom. Next, we meet Christopher Vane co-founded of Little Bear Sanctuary, a nonprofit farm animal sanctuary in Punta Gorda, FL. Christopher named the farm in honor of his late mother Ursula (which translates to “little bear” in Latin). They shared a common passion for animals and Ursula often dreamed of providing neglected, once-abused animals a safe haven. Chris and his husband Randy followed through on Ursula’s dream and established the Little Bear Sanctuary in 2017. Now, 160+ rescued farm animals call Little Bear Sanctuary home. They discuss Pigs as a Pet Pandemic and their current GoFundMe project. Finally, Farmer Doug opines that he's up-in-the-air about choosing a Presidential candidate, because neither has any regard for the small Family Farmer.
