How did you get into farming?
I was originally part of a pioneering movement in the 80's to produce and provide organic produce to consumers, we helped start a food cooperative to match buyers with farmers and that eventually evolved into what is now Organic Valley, a very large organic dairy operation.
What is the biggest life lesson you've learned from farming
We are what we eat, no really, good nutrition comes from quality grown and locally consumed foods! It matters, how we treat the earth and it matters how we treat our bodies and communities!
If you were a vegetable, what vegetable would you be?
This year I would say okra!! It grows great with few threats, it's gorgeous when it blooms, the fruits keep coming and coming for weeks and weeks, and it's delicious!
