Antiques Roadshow: Resources

I was fortunate enough to share the “stage” at FamilyFarmed Expo with three fantastic speakers and true knowledge banks on the topic of heirloom fruits and vegetables and heritage meats.  This page is a follow-up resource to that conference talk I moderated, full of links for further reading.  Here first, my panelists:
