Introducing Caitlin and Jason of Sobremesa in Fairfield, VT

Sobremesa 1We’re excited to publish a new Farmer Profile of an inspiring beginning farmer every few weeks on the NYFC blog to help showcase the breadth and vision of the next generation of agricultural leaders.

Sobremesa begins this season under the stewardship of husband and wife team, Jason and Caitlin Rodriguez, on land at Stony Pond Farm in Fairfield, Vermont.

Each crop can be preserved into a marketable product such as fermented vegetables, dried herbs and canned goods.
