2013 Rootdown Faces

Yes, we are off to another fantastic season.  Chickens out on fresh pasture, pigs galavanting around in the tall grass, the vegetables bountiful and beautiful, growing quickly in the long daylight hours of the season.  As we kick off the season, let’s introduce the faces that work hard to bring wonderful great food to the local community.
