A Longtime Farmer Shares His Wisdom (part 1)


Nash Huber is famous for his delicious carrots — crunchy, sweet and alive. He started farming in Washington state’s northeast Olympic Peninsula by cultivating backyard gardens and many relationships. His team grows over 100 varieties of vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds and pork all year round. When suburban sprawl started eating up nearby farmland, Nash dedicated himself to growing a stable base of land for farming. He partnered with PCC Farmland Trust to buy and protect farmland in his region. He was designated Steward of the Year 2008 by the American Farmland Trust. Episode 244. [nashsorganicproduce.com]
