16. Bringing Folks Into The Fold of How Their Food Is Produced: An Interview with Allison Boyd
Mountain Maryland Mamas
Our interview series with the founding female farmers of the Deep Creek Farmers Market continues!Our very own Maureen Sheaffer is one of five founding members of the Deep Creek Farmers Market that starts on May 27th, so we've put together a series of interviews to celebrate this new community project! All five founding members are leading ladies here in Garrett County, MD and four of them are local farmers and producers. Continuing through mid-June, we're talking with the four farmers (we will eventually interview Maureen too!) and next up is Allison Boyd of Honey Moon Farm in Accident, MD...Allison's story starts in Massachusetts where she studied political science, eventually went to law school and then received her AHA MOMENT when a college professor shared that the industry contributing most to climate change was agriculture. Allison has experience in advocacy work and agriculture policy, giving her a strong and passionate foundation for her farming goals. She wants to bring people into the fold of how their food is produced and she does it amazingly through her CSA program, farmers market involvement and the downright GOOD FOOD she grows on a 3-acre farm in our mountains of Maryland.During this interview, we talk about being a #fanofyourfarmer, how general food production is mostly invisible and we even get a little nerdy with some soil talk. If you're in or close to Garrett County, MD, consider becoming a future CSA member of Honey Moon Farm, shop their online store or gather their goods at the Cumberland or Deep Creek Farmers Markets.
