We are Polly and Prentice at Villageside Farm in Freedom. We have been farming this lovely land since 2001. We love to eat delicious food, to be outside, to grow things, to build things and we don't mind getting dirty. We are friendly and professional. We market our vegetables to restaurants, distributors and natural food stores. In the Spring, we host several on-farm seedling sales. We have three young sons and we enjoy the challenges and rewards of working from home with them. We have a beautiful network of family support that makes the busy months possible.
We both strive to be clear communicators and make it an everyday goal to see things through others' viewpoints. We respect and welcome diversity of all kinds. Our interests besides agriculture include exploring nature, art, music, food, woodworking, everyday activism and peacemaking.
Ultimately, we aspire to build a farm business that is a true asset to our community and local economy. We aim to build a sound farm business that supports our family financially and demonstrates our ethic of service to the land, community and greater good. We train 4-5 farm interns each growing season. We consider our mentorships to be an important way we contribute to the future of agriculture and the health of the Earth community. We hope to not only serve our customers with a wide array of wholesome farm products, but also to create a place where neighbors can interact and people can connect with the source of their food. We imagine Villageside Farm as a community resource.
