JoDee Powers from LiveWell Montezuma talks with KSJD's Tom Yoder about Good Food Montezuma, a new organization forming to support local food producers and consumers by improving and maintaining a sustainable, local food system.

Cider making has a long tradition in the apple orchards of the Four Corners area. KSJD's Jeff Pope talks with three local cider makers about how cider is made, and why it is an important product for apple producers.
