I produce my own high-quality vegetable starter plants whenever possible, and purchase seeds and other materials from the most reliable sources. I follow the standards of the National Organic Program of the USDA, so your produce is guaranteed to be Certified Organic quality. I balance efficiency with attention to detail, and go above and beyond to give excellent customer service.
SEE MY HANDY WORK
MY NAME IS Amy
The Yard Farmer is a culmination of a 10+ year background of commercial vegetable farming, teaching and training new farmers, and an entrepreneurial spirit. I studied biology at Brown University and agronomy (agricultural science) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In between, I served in the Peace Corps as an Agriculture Volunteer in Madagascar. I grew up in mid-Michigan but now call the Lehigh Valley home.
People will tell you three things about me: 1. I have a rock-solid work ethic; 2. I love growing veggies; and 3. I am a straight-shooter. I approach every job as an opportunity to extend my love and appreciation of gardening and healthy eating to my clients.
