Bob Quinn says he wasn't really aiming to run an organic farm.  But organic methods seemed to work well on his Montana farm, so he kept at it, making more discoveries over time. 

Re-discoveries, actually, since some of the techniques date back a very long time.  Bob and co-writer Liz Carlisle tell the story in Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food.  Bob Quinn is our guest.
