The Clear Brook Farm Crew
Andrew has been organic farming for over 20 years. He grew up a suburban kid who first learned what living was about doing trail work in the Green Mountains and out West. He graduated from the University of Vermont where he studied Geography and Comparative Religion. He loves farming and bird watching. Andrew is married to artist (and gardener) Anne Hunter; their son, Jamie, is the funniest six year old on the farm.
Jamie's hired himself on as our quality control officer, making sure the raspberry, blueberry, and strawberry crops meet his exacting standards. Also, he's been known to spot check green beans, carrots, and the occassional brussel sprout.
Matthew grew up in central Iowa, met Andrew at Earlham College, and has a graduate degree in Avian Ecology from Iowa State University. Aside from his farm duties, Matthew is the President of Mount Anthony Preservation Society and the Chair of the Village Trustees of North Bennington. He and his wife Emily have two children, Hannah and Iris.
Anne is married to Andrew and mother to Jamie. While harvesting flowers for the day's bouquets, she raises the alarm for incoming storms, odd cloud formations, and other meteorological rumblings. A children's book author and illustrator, she designs the Clear Brook Farm flower gardens, t-shirts, and artworks.
Thanks to Brad, all our bedding plants stay watered and get the space and extra individual care that keeps them great throughout the bedding plant season. Also, Brad is the vegetable display wizard at our Londonderry Farmer's Market booth every Saturday.
Adam does just about anything on the farm that needs to be done. No matter how hard anyone tries (including Andrew), no one can pick beans faster than Adam. It is suspected that he either has third or fourth hands, or steals beans from someone's bucket.
These two run the farm stand, making the produce shine and the stand run efficiently, ensuring that our customers are happy. They always have time for a smile, even while keeping the field crew in line.
Having come to Vermont to study Photography and Botany at Bennington College, Christy's special skills include a fascination with greenhouse tomato nurture and a penchant for macro photography.
