Farmers, cast your ballots for FSA county committee members by this Monday, December 1st. If you are in Orange County, meet another candidate we support, Jillian Mickens of Open Door Farm.
What is your name, and where do you farm?
How long have you been farming?
My husband and I have been farming for three years.
What kind of farm do you run?
We grow organically produced cut flowers and produce for local farmers markets.
What do you think qualifies you for the position?
My experiences as a new farmer, first at the Breeze Incubator Farm and now on my own land, has given me insight into the challenges of establishing and building a farm business. Through my interaction in the farming community I am aware of the special challenges faced by young and low resource growers.
Farmers, to vote for Jillian or other candidates, please send in your vote by December 1st!
