ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - This week might be the wildest podcast we’ve done in our almost 200-episode history.

We were surrounded by animals while recording our interview with Jeff Suchland, who runs Alpacas of Troy and Brats of the World; two separate businesses both operated out of their family farm in Troy, Missouri.

You can find both of them at farmers’ markets across the area, including Tower Grove on Saturdays and Tuesdays.In this interview. you’re going to hear some of the alpacas, as well as Fred the peacock who wanted to say hello. But you’re also going to hear a story about how one of our local farmers is taking a different approach, finding a way to carry on the legacy of his family’s farm into the next generation.It involves sausage making and yarn making – two things he didn’t know anything about until he set his mind to learning.

Head to @meetstlouispodcast on Instagram and Facebook to see the cute alpacas you just learned about. As well as some of the goats. You can see them yourselves as well at the farm, its open for tours. Meet Jeff and pick up some of the brats and sausages at area farmer’s markets including Tower Grove, Ferguson, Sol Food Farmer’s Market and Francis Park Farmer’s Market.
