State of Michigan vs “Bakers Green Acres”
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour”
Back in March, I interviewed Mark Baker of Baker’s Green Acres here on the Homestead Honey Hour. Mark is a retired air force veteran, now sustainably farming in northern Michigan State along with his wife and 8 children. If you missed that show, Mark and his family were and still are involved in a legal battle for their right to farm, specifically to continue their pasture-raised hog operation.

After the SHTF, where will you get your meat? Well, fortunately for us, many parts of the states are getting overrun with hogs… yes, that’s right; big, filthy, nasty, tasty hogs.
Join us Monday, July 1 for The Gun Show, as we talk with members of the SHWAT Team. That’s right, SHWAT… This isn’t some half-assed translation by Siri, I actually mean it. Special Hogs Weapons And Tactics. Apparently tactics are needed to hunt bacon on legs, and we’ve got just the experts lined up to talk about it. Perhaps they’ll shed some light on how to react to an ambush or break contact. After all, these pigs get huge and aggressive. Join us at 4PM PST, 7PM EST and don’t miss out on some free training from top guys in the industry.
This week’s episode of the Homestead Honey Hour will feature Renée, (or Michigansnowpony as she is known on YouTube) taking your questions on all things homestead related. Renée and her husband Tim have been homesteading for over 20 years on their 10 acre hobby farm. Renée will be answering questions submitted to her channel as well as taking questions from the listening audience, both in the chat room and from folks who call in. So, if you have a question about dairy goats, chickens, meat rabbits, homestead hogs, turkeys, horses, gardening, seed starting, canning, cooking with a solar oven, gardening with raised beds, dehydrating, heating with wood, putting down a shallow well point, and anything else you’ve seen her (and her better half) do on her channel, don’t be shy, call in and ask! Spring is just around the corner and now is the time to get answers to what you need to know before the “busy” season starts!
