Visit to a Kentucky farm
Carden and Courtney Willis’ farm in Henry County is called A Place on Earth. They provide fresh vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, berries, and eggs to the members of their CSA. They generously showed me around their farm and we spoke about the recent challenges of a year with too much rain and the work they are doing to replenish the farm’s soil depleted by years of corn and tobacco farming.
It was encouraging to witness their passion and commitment to farming and their tremendous respect for older generational farmers and sound farming practices.
