Tuesday, November 19, 2019 – Microgreens are nutritional powerhouses, with nutrient levels up to 40 times higher than their full-grown counterparts. Dustin Smith of Tanglewood Fresh Specialty Produce Co. is on the Pride of Dakota holiday show circuit highlighting the benefits of microgreens. ~~~ 2019 started throwing farmers curve balls in January with the government shutdown that closed many Agriculture Department offices. Then came spring flooding and summer drought. Export tariffs underscored it all and farm incomes continued a five year slide. Harvest Public Media’s Amy Mayer reports on how farmers are coping a dip in the ag economy. ~~~  Naturopathic doctor Alli Svobodny joins us to continue a discussion on toxins.
