Jess Brandeisky, Fernbrook Farm

Farmer

Jessica joined Fernbrook as a full-time apprentice in 2015 and is now the assistant manager. This will be her fourth year farming full-time. Fernbrook operates a 26-week seasonal CSA and an optional winter CSA with monthly pick-ups from December through March. The winter CSA has been effective in keeping seasonal members involved year-round and in attracting new members who see the winter pick-up as a CSA trial. Crop planning, harvest, and storage conditions are an integral part of the CSA’s winter component.
