How long have you been farming?
What type of farm do you have?
We have a produce and blueberry farm which we started here about 8 years ago with my children.
What motivates you to farm?
I wanted to grow healthy berries for my family and to provide them for the community. Then I also added high tunnels and gardens to produce healthy all-natural greens. I didn’t want foods with all the chemicals. I also wanted a place for others to come and enjoy as they picked their berries.
What things do you love most about farming?
I love being outside and eating well.
What do you find most challenging about farming?
It requires so many hours to keep up with it.
What are the farming practices you take pride in and why?
We don’t use any pesticides or herbicides on our berries or in our high tunnels. You can pick and eat right there.
