TPH - Episode 125

Do you have the right to farm? Well, you would think that the very fact you are a human being and have to eat gives you the right to farm but there are laws that ensure that right as well. Actually, every state has right to farm laws. So why would there need to be a constitutional amendment for Right to Farm? That's a good question and one we will look at today. In the recent election Right to Farm was on our ballot as a state question. You never know if or when this will pop up in your...

TPH - Episode 121

Have you ever wondered why you see some goats with horns and others without? Today we are going to examine the topic of weather or not to disbud your goats.
