"I think young farmers and farming are in a good place right now because there is such a movement towards DIY- people taking ownership over what they love to do and making it a reality with few resources."

“I definitely get made fun of less than I used to for being interested in food and farming. Now people are like, ‘Oh, that’s cool’ versus, ‘Oh, that’s weird’.  I got into farming through working in food and then I met the guys that founded North Brooklyn Farms. I started cooking for them and realized I wanted to be more hands on in the growing of the food I was using.  It all came full circle.

I think young farmers and farming are in a good place right now because there is such a movement towards DIY- people taking ownership over what they love to do and making it a reality with few resources.  People are becoming more interested in where their food comes from and are trying to learn how to grow and make things themselves.”
