Episode 48. The Evolving Poultry Operation
In this episode, we talk with Mike Andreas of Andreas Homestead near Raleigh, North Carolina. Mike, who has had a successful career in the entertainment industry, and his wife, Lynn, moved to North Carolina. After beginning to raise their own poultry, with help from neighbors, they have begun a small poultry meat business, sustainable raising around 300 to 500 birds each year, as well as 10 to 20 goats, on 10 acres. Mike talks about how after just a few years, others in the area have begun asking them for advice, the challenges of processing in North Carolina, and regenerating the tobacco-depleted land the operation is on.
