In this episode of Slow Ride Stories, Erik and Albert visit Cranberry Hill Farm in Ashford, Conn., where proprietor Art Talmadge talks about his business growing heirloom veggies and heritage breed chickens for sale at local farmers markets. Talmadge says he and his fellow farmers deal with climate change every day, but they don’t often talk about it.
