Friends Who Grow Food {Week 7 CSA}

The days are getting hot and yet our team is cooler than ever! Cool cats, that is. Meet the fantastic folks growing your food this season!

Our peak season crew changes each year, despite us wishing we could keep everyone here all year long. It works well, however, as we've shaped our work offering into an in-depth learning opportunity for aspiring farmers. There aren't many regenerative market farms in climates as unique as ours, so we've welcomed much interest in this chance to be incubated as a high desert farmer.

Your CSA, nor any of our nourishing harvests, would be possible without this tireless crew. They arrive on frozen mornings in April and keep pace on sweltering July afternoons. They bring a youthful zest to each day, make laughter the soundtrack to farm tasks, and are hopeful about what truly sustainable relations with the soil hold for their generation and the ones to follow.

Give it up for your Prema Farmers!

CASSIDY CASE has been with us since she interned over the 2018 winter. She was still a student at Evergreen University in Washington, but native to Reno. When she graduated, we scooped her up as quickly as we could! Cass is our Farm Manager and she ensures operations are smooth and interns are well-directed.

Why You Farm: Farming continues to replenish me emotionally even when I'm physically tired. It's fulfilling and grounding all at once.

Favorite Farm Task: Harvesting herbs! It's an enjoyable sensory experience.

Surprising Fact: I nearly had perfect pitch in high school when I played the violin.

Favorite Prema Veggie: I really am enjoying the fragrant herbs we're harvesting and I put them in about everything.
