Beloved Farmer Colleagues
By: Hans Hansen (Sep 11, 2011)
It's no secret that Brad and Jenny are two of the most dedicated, finest farmer examples and inspiring local food leaders in the state; they have a model CSA to boot. How I ended up in the same neighborhood with them is nothing but fate - I believe there is a reason, I just haven't figure out what it is yet (hah!).
What Brad, Jenny, I (Twin Persimmons Farm) and other local producers share is a huge vision for local agriculture in SE Texas, that the area we serve has room for a lot more farmers than currently exists. What I see, and I believe they see as well, is a very large metropolitan area just beginning to wake up to, and develop a huge apetite for extraordinary quality wholesome food grown close to home.
As a united group of local producers, working co-operatively, as a whole, we create synergy, we are better, and we are stronger. There is a talented group of farmers in SE Texas, all offer something unique and different. Collectively, we add a rich diversity of product variation - this means a more gratifying array of local food choice for you.
Brad and Jenny blazed a trail for the rest of us. For that we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude and love for all their hard work.
