Amber Waves Farm, located in The Hamptons, Ny, was created and is successfully run by our friends Amanda Merrow and Katie Baldwin. They have been our inspiration for Cruz del Sur Farm since the first time we met them.
They have an amazing farm with an extensive CSA membership and a great focus on education since 2009.
We love and admire what Amanda and Katie have created and achieved during the past years not only in terms of organic farming but also by bringing a community together.
Coming from the restaurant business, we were introduced to organic farming by Amanda and Katie 3 years ago. Nowadays we have become friends and partners and thanks to the fact that we have opposite seasons we are planning to create an apprenticeship exchange program for young farmers offering them the possibility to have an educational experience in another part of the world.
Tailwater farm is located in Willson Mills, Maine (close to Rangeley town) and was started this past fall by our friend Kevin Donoghue and his wife Samantha.
They grow amazing vegetables and incredible blueberries and have already started to sell at the local farmer's market.
We admire how much every member of this family is involved at the farm and everything they have achieved so far!! Flora and Harry who are only one and three years old are already amazing little farmers!
We have spent this past winter (summer for them) together and we love to exchange ideas and knowledge about organic farming.
Being partners with them help us grow together!!
