Interview by Katie Vogt, Bank of America Student Leader and SHS Intern
1. Can you tell me about the Brightside Farm?
(a) When/why it was founded
I lease an acre of the property for most of the annual fruit and vegetable production. We also have interns through the Berea Mennonite church. After working for a farmer for three years, Joe Reynolds with the Love is Love Farm at Gaia Gardens, I wanted to gain more experience. I knew I wanted to start my own farm and I just got really lucky and this property was available at the time. It’s a great location and I’m only minutes from the market.
