Have you always been an eco-farmer, or did you make a change?
David was born and raised on a diversified Wisconsin family farm. We conventionally farmed for three years on a farm before this one. At Vermont Valley we’ve always farmed organically.
What was the biggest hurdle you have overcome?
I don’t know that there’s been a specific, big hurdle. There have been huge learning curves for 20 years, and the learning curves haven’t stopped. We were new at vegetable growing. We were new at being certified organic. We were new at CSA. We were new at all of this, and so along the way we just kept learning and growing.
