WHO ARE YOUR FARMERS?
Rustic Roots Farm is headed up by Erica Emery, a Farmington native and UMF grad. After working on an organic vegetable and fruit farm in the Boston area, Erica decided to get back to her rustic roots and start a farm back home. Erica was fortunate to have access to land owned by her parents, Janice and Bill Crandall, who have used the farm in the past for vegetable enterprises such as corn, wheat, and pumpkins.
Originally from Portland, Erica’s partner Dave helps at the farm with construction, harvesting, cooking tasty dishes to include in the CSA newsletter, and selling at the farmers market! Dave always has a great suggestion for how to cook veggies so be sure to ask him what’s cookin’ this week!
