Jeff & Jess

Jeff and Jess met like any truly modern farmers do - at a farmers’ market, of course. The one place they get out to! Jess was operating Cold Spring Farm as a business of her own and Jeff was helping lead the charge on the market. Both were asked to coordinate the market even though they had never met prior to that. It was his bright smile, tanned skin and green ‘RECYCLE’ t-shirt that caught her attention. It was her pigtails, cheeky smile and overalls that caught his. It was their farm-related interests that got them talking before they sealed a partnership and their desire to grow a sustainable future in farming that made them inseparable. It is their love of family, their love of community, and their love of all things farming that helped create this life they now share. And each season their love grows...

why cold spring farm

Grows With Nature

Simply put: It's good for everyone!  For the health of all the earth's inhabitants as well as for the health of the earth itself, this is the only way to grow real food. If we pay attention to nature, and work with it, we reap the harvest of health. If we use what nature provides to build our soil health and grow our food, the results are astounding and best of all, delicious. On a microbiological level, we are feeding an active soil teeming with life that provides the nutrients our plants need to produce the 'fruit,' which is a byproduct of our true wealth -- the soil.
