Joey and Holly Baird


Joey & Holly Baird are the founders of The Wisconsin Vegetable and The Gardening with Joey and Holly radio show. Formally named The Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener Radio Show.

Joey and Holly Baird are in their 5th season of The Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener Radio Show. The show in 2021 airs weekly on 15 different radio stations in 10 plus different markets all over the US March – October. 

They are a married couple living in southeastern Wisconsin (just outside of Milwaukee). In addition to the radio show, Joey & Holly make videos on youtube about how to grow your own food organically, reusing found items (or items you may just throw away), what to do with the food you grow, home canning and simple home living. They have over 1,950 videos here and on youtube

They grow in the ground, raised beds, straw bales, containers and indoor herbs. From seed starting to canning they cover it all.

Their goal through their radio show, videos, and social media pages is to show the average person how easy it is to grow food, store food, and reuse everyday items. Joey and Holly enjoy giving gardening talks at libraries, expos, garden clubs and other events around the Midwest. Their motto is “grow with us”. Holly is also an award winning home canner with a handful of ribbons from the Wisconsin State Fair including a Best of Show award for her home canning talents.

    I grew up marinette/Menominee area, my mother always had a garden n always canned tomatoes, green beans, asparagus, dill pickles, sweet pickles, and raspberry jam. She still does tomatoes n beans. I’m giving it a try this year here in oklahoma… There is nothing better in chili in winter than canned tomato juice, I have started looking into solar panels for help with alternative electric source and having a few chickens, guess I should have started all this 20yrs ago but I guess like a lot of us just never thought about it.. Could I live off the grid if needed? Could i homestead to a point if needed? I’m not a conspiracy theorist but one never knows if/when I might need to be more self sufficient..

      You could do both. It would take some work and time, but its very possible. There are a number of homesteading groups on facebook where you can also connect with people like you to ask questions and get ideas.
