Farmer Portraits: Pierpont Farms

Rob and Angela, while still new to the farming scene, have built quite a reputation for themselves.  Growing vegetables mostly, with some poultry too, they provide CSA shares as well as supply restaurants like Sycamore with ingredients.  They live just south of Columbia, on some really old land.  They’ve implemented these Haygrove tunnels, that allow them to extend their season with the sheltering and refraction properties of the plastic shell.  I had a hard time not taking the picture in their awesome old barn, even though it had nothing to do with their business, haha.
