“The world needs small farmers.”
Yes Sesa, yes we do… especially if they all take a note (or ten) from your and Jill’s book.
To be a great farmer? You need a dutiful soul that is inherently connected to the earth as your own. You wake with the beat of her days… and sleep to the rhythm of her restful breaths. As a farmer, you take into your hands the creation not only of health for the community, but also the protection and conservation of our soil, water, and landscape. Jill and Sesa… keep painting earth’s open lands with your colors of well being, of love, of truth, and of passion. We need more of “yous” on this planet. Let us all be inspired by those helping mother nature by keeping her natural state… never destroying for the good or prosper of one’s own pocket; but giving… through sweat, tears, broken backs, long days… and a knowledge and a purpose to always do more, always do better, to follow your lifes calling.
I tip my hat to you both- In acknowledgment of your stewardship of the land, in awe of your love in this life, in deep respect for following your life’s calling, and in providing us with quite simply… honest food…
P.S. That was quite possibly the most delicious melon I have ever tasted. Bravo.

I absolutely adore this. They seem so wonderful. And farmers are so impressive!
I adore your praises for what they do here. My grandfather grew up in rural Portugal a farmer and at 40 moved to the US for a better life – today at 87 he still grows his own vegetables and loves to work in his garden. I took him on an adventure this weekend to farms in the country – he loved it so much – we had a similar discussion.
Oh my, this possibly just set the wheels in motion to finally go through with owning my own land and cultivating it with my hubby.
What a treasure!
I’ve been following these two on instagram forever and I adore them! thanks for covering this :)
ps: I believe at the very end sesa says “the world needs small farmers” !!
Lovely photos and a great celebration of farmers!
I feel so happy for them, i saw their whole process raising the farm and to know how amazing they are doing right now is giving me a lot of inspiration to keep going with my farming projects!
Cheers Sesa & Jill!
Did it again! A perfect collaboration amy! You and Jill seem like sisters. Thanks for celebrating the truth and showing the world the beauty in small farmers.
Wow! It’s great to see a farm so close to me featured here! I live less than an hour away in Napa so I’ll definitely be visiting soon!
The photos are beautiful! Their stand is simple and amazing.
So beautiful! This made me so happy! Can I go live there?

Two truly inspiring souls right there.
beautfiul, humble, earth children.
Two beautiful souls making the world a more beautiful place in their own powerful way. I’ve been following this farm’s growth from its tiny seedlings and couldn’t be prouder. It’s amazing what you can do when you feel the fears that come with huge possibility, and shine love right back at it. Thanks FP for featuring them!

“Hi, we are trust fund poseurs…..I mean farmers.” Free People: there are authentic people out there that can truly inspire. Why profile privileged rich kids playing at a bohemian lifestyle? But, I’m glad she found a hobby that makes her less self involved.
I am a true believer of self sustainability.My daughter is apprenticing here on the islands to be a Organic Farmer.I one day wish for you to feature Kauai.where we have fought tooth and nail for keeping our children and the island safe from the harmful outcome of spraying pesticides.if you please just look at Malama Kauai.They teach our youth self sustainability and Organic farming.
