I am Pat Whetham, long time organic farmer in Flushing Michigan. I farm with my husband Clarke. This farm has been Certified Organic for more than 20 years. We grow spelt or other small grains, soybeans, and clover for seed, plus an assortment of vegetables and herbs for a CSA and an on-line farmers market.
I’ve been involved in lots of things over the years, mostly related to organic farming and food but also some environmental work. In the last couple of years I have limited my involvement outside the farm and its markets, because there are just not enough hours in the day, days in the week, weeks in the year, for everything to get done.
