Farm Talk with Paul Ward – 4H Livestock Auction! Auction Day is August 9.

The 2019 Ventura County Fair is here!  Paul is very dedicated to, and involved with, lending his support to the 4-H kids who enter the Ventura County Fair with their animals.  They send him letters and photos of their animals!

Today, on Farm Talk, Paul reads some of the letters that he has recently received from a few of the 4H kids he has helped with his sponsorship.  Paul makes what is called an “add-on contribution”. Add-on contributions are a great way to support the 4-H participants, and help offset the cost of raising the animal.

Today’s letters are from middle school kids & upper elementary school kids.  The letters give us an idea of what kinds of kids are involved in the 4H program.

The first letter is from Clara, who is 14 years old, and is going into 8th grade in Camarillo, California. She says she has raised a lamb, named Roger, and a goat, and has recently been elected co-vice president of her club. She invites Paul to visit them at the Fair.

Tune in to hear more great stories on this heartwarming show that is sure to bring a smile to your face!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Liquid Gold

In today’s episode of Farm Talk, Paul discusses liquid gold (or water, as it’s known in California).  Farm properties in California are all about water – not just the availability of water, but also the cost of water.

Here in Southern California, summer is the arid time of year and farming is completely reliant on transporting water long distances.  So, how we value farm properties is largely based on the cost of water.  Neighboring properties can have drastically different water costs.  One property could be low and yet the property across the street could be twice, three times, or even four times as expensive!

So when people are looking for farms, one of the primary questions is “What is the source of water?”.  If it is county water, it can be significantly more expensive than well water.

Paul explains in detail how the water costs vary, and he breaks it down so that it is very easy to understand things like “acre feet”, and what the water cost of each acre of your farm may be per year.  Water can become so expensive on some properties that it makes certain properties better for equestrian use, rather than farming.

This is a very interesting episode full of excellent information.  Tune in to learn more!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – The benefits of using pods.

WELCOME to another addition of FARM TALK with Paul Ward.

Today, Paul tells us about a ’Moving Day secret’ which he actually used during his last family move. It made the moving process “So much easier…” he said.

The idea of using portable Pods, that specific moving companies have available, can make life a lot easier. Lets say you want to paint or remodel your new place before moving in with your furniture. The moving company will take your furniture and move it into the pods while the painting or remodel work is being done, and store it for you.

Another benefit of using pods is the fact that by keeping the furniture in a pod, there’s less chance of items being broken or damaged, due to it being handled no more than twice. It is a much safer way to store your furniture or items until you are ready for them.

 Listen here and save some time and $$ on your next move.

Farm Talk With Paul Ward: Virtual Staging vs. Traditional Staging – Cost-Effective, Professional, Beautiful!

Welcome to another edition of Farm Talk! Today Paul talks about staging – both traditional and virtual staging, a newer option.

If you have a house to sell and your furniture is a bit dated or it is an empty house you have two options to attract more buyers:

1 – You can go the traditional way and stage your house with professional stagers who will bring in nicer furniture that will match the style of your home.  Traditional staging is pricey but very effective.

2 – Virtual staging:  When viewed online, the rooms look amazing-often you can’t tell it is virtual! Of course, in reality, the furniture does not exist so when the people physically arrive at your property, there is no furniture. Virtual staging will get people to your house and give them an idea of how furniture will look there.

Paul has staged houses both ways. He has literally spent thousands with traditional staging and virtually staged houses for two hundred dollars!

Listen to Farm Talk and find out important details and helpful tips. Present your house in the most attractive way and do it cost-effectively!

Farm Talk With Paul Ward: An Add-On Scholarship For Ventura County 4H Students!

Today we revisit Paul’s scholarship plan for 4-H Students.  He tells us about all the great plans he has for Farm Talk, and let’s us know what fun shows he has in store.  Whether he’s interviewing people in the farming industry, folks who take care of a few acres, or farmer’s market participants, there are lots of great shows ahead.

On this week’s show, Paul talks about a scholarship he has started, involving the agriculture industry. For several years Paul has received correspondence from local middle school and high school students that are involved in 4-H.  Paul makes what is called an “add-on contribution” towards their college fund.  Add-on contributions are a great way to support the 4-H participants, and help offset the cost of raising the animal.
