A passion for organic produce grown locally has seen Carl and Kati Freeman's "Farm Next Door" project get awarded a significant research grant. Massey University researchers and associates are in Taranaki to have a look at the project and look at ways to continue the agriculture project. Carl explains to Jesse what's next for his work.
