The Farmers 

 

We are both first generation farmers, learning purely through books and experience. We believe that everyone is just a few generations removed from a farmer in their family; and while farming is both simple and complicated, the connection with the soil and the seasons is something that is innate. 

 
 We wear many hats. We are the owners, managers, farm laborers, green house workers, marketers, delivery drivers, builders, book keepers, irrigation specialists, mechanics, photographers, public relations managers, and more.

Helena Sylvester

Helena is the brains behind the operation, she is in charge of the planning and seed orders, as well as greenhouse operations, and planting. She is often the one behind the camera, which lends itself to her also being our social media and website guru. Helena loves working hard and being outside, and has slowly embraced the farmers tan.


Matthew Sylvester

Matthew is the heart of the farm. He handles our emails, chef and restaurant relations, soil nutrition, irrigation, farm projects, deliveries and market sales. He spends hours in the fields weeding and harvesting, loves getting his hands dirty and often works past sundown. Matthew is an incredibly hard worker, and always has a positive attitude - which comes in real handy in the farming profession.

    

 

FARM DOG ROUX

we adopted roux girl at the end of the 2016 season, she was able to spend some time learning from our old timer farm dog Vinny before he passed (R.I.P. vin). she enjoys digging holes with her dog uncle moe, finding sunny spots to nap in and chasing and catching birds and field mice.


Happy Acre Crew

This season has brought a lot of changes. We added more acreage, hired a crew and had a baby!

Our newest crew member, August, joined the team in early march, he has quickly worked his way up the ranks to being the boss (baby boss) and along with overseeing work on the farm, he will also be overseeing some of our farmers markets. 

crew members, Rachel and Colleen, Both completed the CASFS program and have been a great addition to our Farmily.
