The Farmer

To get the best food possible, you should know the first name of their grower. So, meet Summer!

She's an expert in jumping over rows of vegetables in order to chase errant chickens out of her cauliflower. Her hands are often dirty (her mother keeps telling her to wear gloves!), but she will always extend a handshake if you drop in to say hello.

 

Summer has been planting gardens since she was in elementary school. She went on to work at a farm in Vermont before getting her BA in English with a minor in Horticulture. In the meantime, she married her high school sweetheart, Thomas. Their six children, ranging in age from 18 down to 3, let her combine her lifelong passions for education and farming. She enjoys this space where she can wax poetic over the loves of her life!

Thank you for your support in choosing local, sustainable, organic food!
