"It is impossible to describe a summer at Evans Knob Farm except to say that it will change your life. The moment you step foot on the farm, you’re a part of it – you’re family. Warning: This means that you may just be harvesting strawberries or weeding the kale if you’re standing still for too long. Kathy and Reid Evans are homesteaders, entrepreneurs, gardeners, problem-solvers, and mentors, and they have a deep-seated love for taking care of the earth and its creatures. They are passionate and hardworking, and the beauty and bounty of their family farm and its harvest are a reflection of their love for their work. To live and labor with the Evans is to learn from them, and I am so thankful to have done so."
