On-Farm, Episode 019: Mark Quee

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

In this episode, we talk with Mark Quee, the Farm Manager at Scattergood Friends School, a boarding school near West Branch. The farm there raises organic fruits, vegetables and animals that the staff and students eat.

We talk about beneficial insects, integrated pest management, flowers and the wonderful mysteries of ecological processes.

Mark was just featured in a new video series from PFI – Bringing Back the Edges: Creating Wildlife Habitat on Farms. You can check out the video on beneficial insects here.
