Episode #54 Conversation with Keith Dragisich about Community Banking

In today’s Episode of Wimer’s Wilderness, we have a conversation with Keith Dragisich, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, about Community Banking. What is a community bank? It is a locally owned and operated financial institution. They address the needs of a community by offering loans to small-business owners or personal loans to individuals.

Keith and I discuss the benefits of local community banks and how they have evolved. We share several stories and take a deep dive into banking operations. Keith gives us a lot of great advice on how businesses and individuals can benefit from local banks.

Episode #53 Auquaponics

In Episode #53, we talk with Clayton Timm of Green Leaf Farms. This aquaponics operation based in Chetek, Wisconsin, is producing Fresh Swiss chard, basil, romaine, kale, leaf lettuce, and tilapia. 

At the start of the episode, I give a few minutes of aquaponics history and background information.

Clayton and I then discuss the aquaponics’ ins and outs and have a little advice if you are interested in starting your operation. 

Episode #52 Farming

In episode #52, we discuss Farming. That word means a lot of different things. We have big ag with farms as large as 190,000 farmland acres down to a fraction of an acre for aquaponics operation. Our discussion is going to touch on these and everything in between.

Farm finances are also a key topic of debate and the impacts of trade policies. Small community-based farms are a key to a sustainable future. We add information about a great group at The Farmacy YouTube channel. They provide excellent tours of organic farms and great information about better food and better health.

Plus, how many podcasts will play a John Mellencamp song and a clip of Milton Friedman in the same episode?
