Q (co-owner) has been at the farm since the first season back in 1990.  His passion for growing organic food most likely came from his stint out west attending Pitzer College, from which he received a B.A. in History.  While this passion continues to consume him, Q also has a wide breadth of knowledge in many fields.  

His off farm activities include writing and his pursuit of the perfect jump shot.

Jed came to Waldingfield in the spring of 2010 and quickly proved to be the missing link in our business/farm operations. Today he  is the farm's Manager.  Originally from the midwest, Jed earned his JD from Seattle University School of Law before relocating to the sandy beaches and perpetual sunshine of O'ahu, Hawaii. After four years in Honolulu and one year serving as a chambers attorney in the Westchester County courts system (New York), Jed transitioned to the farm and has never looked back.

As the farm Manager, his responsibilities include, but are not limited to, running all daily field operations, developing and implementing our greenhouse and high tunel seeding program, operating and maintaining all farm machinery, implementing new techniques, and running the farm crew.
