Chrissy and Holly, farmers
Chrissy, on the left, and her wife Holly, grow and sell heirloom vegetables on their holistic, 265 acre farm, near Jordanville in Central New York State. They also produce pastured large black pork that are mother's milk fed.

Chrissy told me that she has been greatly influenced by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner, founder of "anthropomorphic agriculture", later known as "biodynamic" now practiced by many farmers in Europe and North America. Biodynamic farms use composting, integrating animals, cover cropping, and crop rotation to create their own fertility. Chrissy and Holly sell their produce in farmers' markets in New York City and Westchester. Holly is also a teacher at the Richfield Springs school.
