Meet the Farmer
Lyndsay is the owner, operator and farmer of Sprout and Blossom Farm. She started the farm in 2017 with her best-friend Lauren. Since the first year Lyndsay has been running Sprout and Blossom solo.
She got her first taste of farming in 2015 when she left her hometown of Virginia to WWOOF on a small farm in Hood River. It wasn’t long after arriving at the farm that she fell deeply in love with farming. After a summer in Hood River, she headed to Portland where she immediately began immersing herself into the local agriculture community. In 2016 Lyndsay received her Permaculture Design Certificate from City Repair. In the same year Lyndsay completed the Zenger Farm internship program. Working at Zenger Farm taught Lyndsay the ins and outs of farming and gave her all the skills needed to start Sprout and Blossom Farm.
When the farm was first started it was nothing but an idea and big plot of grassy land. Over the last three years the land now has 1 acre cultivated with veggies, flowers, herbs and natives. Small scale farming is the future and one of the ways that can combat the major climate and social issues revolving around Industrial Agriculture.
Creating abundance both through food and community allows for a deep connection to each other and ourselves. Food is medicine, it is connection, it is life.
