Then, we talk with Liam Flynn and Steve Marsh of Open Plough, a Baltimore-based coalition of farmers, entrepreneurs, educators, and chefs, working to build a food hub for local residents in the Station North neighborhood of Baltimore. Flynn is the owner of Liam Flynn’s Ale House in Baltimore, and Marsh is a chef, brewmaster and farmer.
