Nine years ago Andrea Bemis and her husband Taylor packed their bags, ditched their minimum wage jobs and drove from Oregon to Massachusetts to learn how to farm.
Andrea was yearning to do something meaningful with her life, and her husband grew up on a 60-acre organic vegetable farm.
For the past eight years Andrea has blogged about their life as farmers on her website, sharing meal ideas and a lighthearted look at the not-so-glamorous life of living off the land.
