18. Embedded in the Landscape - Interview with Micah Wiles of Cedar Creek Farm
This is my old pal Micah Wiles, a young farmer from the small town of Somerset, Kentucky with a passion for ecology that's matched only by the beauty of his work at Cedar Creek Farm.
Micah has spent the better part of the last decade developing a food forest and silvopasture on the family farm where he resides with his parents, who run a homestead winery as their main enterprise.
In the photo above, he's showing us some of the older trees in the first phase of his food forest design, which includes pecans, persimmons, pawpaws, apples, peaches, mulberries, and so much more. To the left you'll see some of Micah's cattle herd happily grazing away at a fresh patch of pasture.
In this episode of the Good Life Revival Podcast (stream and download above, or listen through iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play), I speak with Micah about the history of the farm, his relationship with the land, and how he and his family sustain themselves in a way that's in tune with the rhythms of nature, while working to elevate the local community and educate others on this path.

If you derive some value from the work that I put into this podcast, I hope you'll consider making a contribution through my Patreon page.
Earlier this week, I published a photo-journal from our trip to Cedar Creek Farm exclusively on Patreon, with pictures by Brooke and words by yours truly. You, too, can access this content by tossing a dollar or more into my digital tip jar.
I don't consider this show to be a moneymaking venture, because any cash I receive at this point will go right back into growing the project -- patrons this month helped pay for the tank of gas it took to get us to Cedar Creek and back last weekend.
