Morgan wasn't happy. He had a "great job" that paid well in the city. But it was not what he really wanted.
Morgan's dream was to build a farm!
After he quit his finance job in Washington, DC, his wife and he moved to a farm in a remote part of Northern Vermont.
He planted a 600 tree integrated orchard consisting of chestnuts, hazelnuts, elderberries, mulberries, apple, black locust and many others.
He also established a flock of 40 egg-laying ducks that will live in a mobile duck house that travels through our orchard.
His ultimate goal is to develop a long-lasting sustainable farm that is sustainable on three levels - environmentally, financially and personally.
Morgan has been documenting his farm's development through a YouTube channel and a newly launched podcast.
Enjoy listening to this podcast episode as Aust and Morgan talk making the leap from living in places like New York City and Washington, DC to town of 700 people in Northern Vermont,
planting a 600 tree orchard, being a duck farmer who is allergic to duck eggs, and so much more!
