The Great American Farm Tour visits with Jim Kovaleski of Freedom House Farm in New Port Ritchey, Florida. Who travels between Florida and Maine , with the growing seasons. In Florida he "rents" his neighbors yards and produces and processes food for market. Take a look at these beautiful front yards!

One of the other folks that Justin Rhodes interviewed on the great American farm tour was Pete Kanaris. Pete has been spending time with Jim up in Maine and shows us a lot more about what Jim is doing.









And more about Pete's effort to document Jims work is HERE.

You are welcome Judith, I thought he was one of the best people that Justin featured on his farm tour. I would love to visit with him, but he is so far away.
