    Chris Huskins bio

    The seeds for Fanfield Farm CSA were planted early on. At a young age Chris worked at a greengrocer’s and spent summers on his great aunt’s dairy farm, Fanfield Farm (the very same name of the ELC plot which both a continuation and celebration of Chris’s time spent on his family farm). Emily grew up on and around farmland and conservation areas giving her an insight into the concerns and life of rural communities. The Ecological Land Co-op gave the young couple confidence and courage to choose farming as a career. And the space to grow food and to set their ambitions high.
