174: Shaun Keesee on Bio-intensive Farming.

A beginner’s experience converting to larger scale organic farming.


shawn-keesee-in-gardenShaun has an upstart one-acre mini-farm called BioManna Farms in Warrenton, NC.  On his farm he grows using a combination of conventional and bio-intensive techniques, slowly moving towards a completely organic set up and is growing in all four seasons, with majority of production coming during the typical growing season.  He is planning to expand to three acres in the future, and into other ventures to diversify, such as beekeeping, vermicomposting, and nursery growing. Shaun is in the process of starting a CSA, has taken agricultural entrepreneurship classes at his local community college, and has secured three local restaurants to buy his produce.
