98. Truth on Organic and Natural Foods: A Regenerative, Biodynamic Solution to our Industrialized Food Coma with Be Here Farm Founder Jared Pickard

Do you eat healthy? Do you take the time and expense to prepare your meals and buy organic and “natural” foods? Well how do you KNOW you’re actually getting what you think you’re getting and are consuming food the way nature intended?

If eating natural and being healthy is important to you, you don’t want to miss this one!

In this episode we talk about the current reality of the way we humans produce, consume and interact with our food and nature AND I share my favorite all natural *skin serum that I use every day!!

My guest, Jared Pickard, is a founder of the Be Here Farm + Nature, a family owned mountaintop homestead set on 300 acres in Saint Helena, CA where he and his wife Velisa have restored a formerly logged and ecologically desolate landscape into a vibrant, healthy ecosystem featuring a wildly diverse farm that is home to over 350 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Inspired by the abundance of the farm and land, the couple has developed a very unique collection of biodynamic self care offerings. Originally, all of this was done in preparation for the opening of a world class hospitality experience, designed to bring overnight guests onto the land for leisure and transformation…BUT all of this changed in September of 2020 when the Napa/Sonoma region was hit with devastating wildfires, including the Be Here Farm property.

From Wall Street to regenerative farming and from an advanced dream-plan to something abruptly new, Jared Pickard has walked through life’s trials of fire and comes to this show with an amazing perspective on the human journey. He shares groundbreaking information on what the “organic” label actually (doesn’t) mean, and provides easy, practical tips for really understanding the quality of food you put into your body. We also talk about my FAVORITE skincare product, Be Here Farm’s *Summer Solstice Serum. Jared has created the cleanest, most potent self care offerings imaginable– and in this episode you’ll learn about the wildcrafted ingredients, solar processing and careful packaging that make his creations so magical. And GUESS WHAT? As an Awakening Aphrodite listener, you receive a special discount and open invitation to contact Jared about the Be Here Farm’s offerings:

For those interested they can head to to try out our Summer Solstice Serum (which we talk about, I use every day and I show on the video!) and get a ten percent discount just for Awakening Aphrodite listeners with code “amylove” (all lower case)!
