On today’s show, grassroots farming in the Ozarks, and what China’s decision to start buying American beef again means for Arkansas ranchers. Also, decades after the Vietnam War began, a documentary on public television may help a country more openly talk about the conflict.

Grass Roots Farmers' Coop, which got its start in 2014, focuses on small-batch farming and responsibly raised meat. The chickens, hogs, cattle and other livestock raised on the coop's members' farms are pasture-raised and fed non-GMO feed. The coop then sells the meat directly to customers via its website, ships it to restaurants around Arkansas and works with distributors and e-commerce companies to get the products to other parts of the country.
