E23: Today on the Podcast I am joined by Jessy Wysmyk and Charles Ryan with Wysmykal Farms. Wysmykal Farm is a certified organic mixed vegetable farm on the beautiful Northumberland shore. Started in 2010 by Charles Ryan and Jessy Wysmyk, Wysmykal Farm offers a weekly veggie basket program, sales through the Sackville, NB and Pugwash, NS markets, and sells veggies to some small grocery stores and local restaurants and food businesses. With support from our veggie basket customers, we are able to offer some subsidized baskets to low income subscribers.
We talked about how and why they decided to start their farm, the importance of local farms to our community and what some of the challenges they’ve had running their farm. We covered a lot of topics and I hope you enjoy them. I will apologize for my sound quality. I made a mistake in recording my audio and didn’t end up using my microphone. I apologize in advance for this.

#stophateforprofit – This is a movement to encourage advertisers to stop advertising on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp for the month of July. I’ve struggled with the decisions that Mark Zuckerberg and his team at facebook have been making for a while. I’m going to do an episode talking more about this later. But, for now I have decided to definitely not advertise on Facebook and I’m not going to use it for the month of July either. I will re-evaluate my decision near the end of the month.
