(First airdate: July 18, 2017) Eating Beef and Dirt from Short’s Family Farm. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Roger Short, the owner of Short’s Family Farm in Chimacum. After decades as a traditional dairyman, Roger converted to grass-fed beef. He passionately believes in the health benefits of grass-fed vs. grain-fed beef. Jefferson County foodies agree with gusto. Short’s other line of business is selling “magical soil.” He sells some to a New Yorker who repackages it (to eat) and sells 4-oz. packages for $107. Roger sells it for considerably less to local gardeners and most of them don’t even eat it.
