A young farmer from Columbia in the Pioneer Valley

This is my friend Juan Mendez from Enterprise Farms in Whately Massachusetts.  Juan was born in Columbia in a farming village.  He made his way to America to continue farming here and pursue education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  Juan is a friend of mine, and a wonderful person.  He LOVES farming.  Always coming home with a bag of freshly grown vegetables for all of us to enjoy.  Juan has a background in permaculture and soil building, and he applies his knowledge every day at Enterprise Farm.

It’s awesome to hear someone who’s traveled far to take up farming in the Pioneer Valley which he thinks is the best place for farming in America.  Special thanks to Juan for letting me interview him.
