The Female Farmer Project

documenting the rise of women in agriculture

photo essay: the grower, an update

Last year, when I shared the story of Siri Erickson-Brown with you, she was busy growing her 40-acre farm to 80-acres and her CSA program to 400 shares and incubating a number of small farm businesses.  But her biggest project this year is the addition to her family. I recently spent an early morning with Siri while she checked in with her interns, staff, the day's restaurant orders and even got down on the ground to help harvest radishes.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from that visit.

Since then, baby B has made her appearance and made Felix a big brother.  Mazel Tov to the happy family and Happy Mothers Day to you Siri!
