Asli Hassan, Fresh Start Farms

“I grew up in a refugee camp. It was always my mom’s dream to farm. My favorite things to grow are carrots and husk cherries because my kids love to eat them.”

Celebrate Dairy Month in June

“I feel fortunate to live and farm in a state that understands how far reaching our farm work is. Our dairies are truly the backbone of our rural communities… I hope we call can think about the dairy farm family connected to our favorite products, and the care and effort that is exerted every day to feed our communities,” — Annie Watson, Sheepscot Valley Farm in Whitefield
