Meet the Farmers
Anthony's arrival at farming was slow, but a long time coming. Farming skipped a generation in anthony's family, yet he was raised outdoors and with deep awe for the beautiful and threatened earth systems we all depend on. After earning a degree in biological and agricultural engineering from UC Davis, anthony finally turned towards agriculture, rather than engineering, as his core craft. Along the way he has worked in a soil biology lab, farmed small-scale vegetables and dairy in Virginia, and completed an apprenticeship on an urban CSA farm in Washington DC. In 2020, ready to farm full-time, anthony joined EBCF with special interest in food justice and seed stewardship. He believes that agriculture well practiced can guide us to reciprocal relationship with the ecologies that so generously support us, while building a well-nourished and resilient community around us.
Andie is a baby farmer and the newest member of the EBCF crew. 2020 was their first season farming, and they quickly fell in love with the garden and developed a growing interest in medicinal plants. Andie was born and raised in New York City, but has always loved getting their hands in the soil and feels most at home surrounded by trees and plants. They come to EBCF from a background in arts education and maintain their own film and visual art practice in their free time, inspired by the nonhuman life and environment in and around the farm. They are excited to keep learning about and practicing regenerative agriculture techniques, land stewardship, and herbal medicine.
Chamomile is our sweet marmalade cat. He is cuddly, skittish, and a little awkward. He loves to have his tummy rubbed but will suddenly attack your hand if you are not gentle. Do not feed him if he begs for food - he is not in distress. He is a great farm cat and hunts little critters who chomp on our vegetables.
