771: Chris Nycz on My Organic Farming.
Expanding self-reliant skills, one step at a time.
In This Podcast:
Join Greg as he chats with Chris Nycz about his journey from college student to weekend farmer to owning his own acres and running a farm to benefit the community. Chris says “It’s been a laboratory where I got to try out all sorts of different ideas that I had read about. I think one of the things I would say is I wasn’t precisely certain what I wanted to do, so I tried to do a great many things, probably too many things.”
Chris was born in Dallas Fort Worth and after deciding that he was interested in organic farming he bought many books on the subject and studied the basic ideas. Using a small portion of father’s land, he created an organic garden and for two years he drove 300 miles round trip to the property almost every weekend. About a decade ago, he realized that he was truly passionate about organic farming, sold his house in the suburbs and bought some land in Southern Oklahoma. Here he has developed the Nycz Organic Farm with work trade opportunities, open-to-the- public visits, and even some organic farm experience vacations.
