Hey friend!

I'm Farmer Erin

Since 2017, I've been working with individuals and businesses who are interested in growing food. I got my food growing education by working on farms of all sizes and shapes, from large-scale Certified Organic CSA farms to smaller scale urban farms.


I specialize in container gardening, raised bed gardening, controlled environment agriculture (greenhouse production, hydroponics production, mushroom production), and edible landscaping. 

Come on in, take a peek at all my offerings and let me know how I can be helpful to YOU and your food growing journey!
