The community-based organization Farm Hack brings together innovative farmers, technology designers, and hackers to approach agricultural challenges without the top-down energy-intensive tools used in mainstream mega-farming. Farm Hack uses both online and face-to-face meetings to encourage and share  creative methods among small farms all over the country. Ben Shute joins us, he is a New York state farmer and co-founder of Farm Hack.
