Our Small But Strong Crew!
Daughters Ruby and Ada say "its ok mama is always dirty cause she’s a farmer.”
Katie Rose has returned to New Leaf for a 2nd season (you'll recognize her from 2018!)! Entering her 6th growing season, she is drawn to farming because it allows her to work outside with her hands, challenges her on the daily and creates a lasting impact by growing food for the greater community. She loves to grow and dry hot peppers and can be found making fresh salsa almost weekly during tomato season!
Proud to be a 7th generation Monkton, Vermonter, this will be Karey's 5th season returning to New Leaf! She enjoys learning from the ever changing rewards and challenges that each new farm season brings. She also loves the creativity that comes into play with the cut flower side of the business, a passion that she inherited from her mother, Bonnie. Her favorite vegetable is the Lunch Box pepper!
Tori is a senior at the University of Vermont studying Food Systems and Community and International Development. She has lived and worked on her family's poultry farm in Maine since 2013 and has found a love and passion for farming ever since. She appreciates the challenging yet rewarding aspects of it all. In her free time you can find her trying new recipes for her friends and family or running on the nearest backroad.
