Radical Roots Farm
publication date: May 1, 2019
Farmer to Farmer Profile
In case you don’t remember the genesis of this column, I wanted an excuse to get myself onto as many farms across the land as I could manage. I had retired from my own farm, and wanted/needed to stay up to date on what’s happening on real farms in real time. Thus, the Farmer to Farmer Profile column! Sometimes I travel for a conference, and then find a cool farm nearby to visit. And other times, I just need to get on the road.
So it went this March, as I returned from weeks and weeks of farm conference travel, but hadn’t visited more than one farm (47th Avenue Farm, profiled in last month’s GFM) along the way. Right off the top of my head, I thought of asking Radical Roots Farm if they would host my visit, and they agreed right away. I’d met Lee and Dave O’Neill a few times over the years, mostly at the Virginia Biological Farming Conference. I knew a couple of folks that had worked there, and I’d consistently heard great things about the farm. So, off I drove 125 miles from my home in Maryland, down the Shenandoah Valley on a beautifully clear March morning.
