I didn’t plan on doing any last minute interviews when I arrived at Bet On The Farm today, Thursday, December 30, 2010.  But with the New Year only a day away I just couldn’t help but ask Doug Taylor, Manager of Bet Of The Farm to kick around his thoughts on 2010 and his vision for 2011.

Many thanks to all those who have worked so hard to make 2010 an amazing year for our sustainable food movement.

Happy New Year

What a nice way to end this exciting year for the sustainable food movement of Las Vegas by having a new producer join the growing number of Bet On The Farm producers.

Alan and Judy Lane are the owners of Oak Lane Herb Farm out in Pahrump and just as soon the weather warms up a little in a month or so we’ll be seeing a lot of great product but today, it’s all about eggs, fresh beautiful eggs that of course meet or exceed FDA standards.

I had a chance to interview Alan so you can hear him explain in his own words the history and mission of Oak Lane Herb Farm and discuss his chickens that are so smart they can find their way home.  Hey, who says our educational system is lacking!

Welcome on board….!
