Meet Your Farmer: Ivy Creek Family Farm

Meet Anna Littman, one of the farmers at Ivy Creek Family Farm, a diversified vegetable farm in Barnardsville, NC. Learn about why Anna chose to become a farmer, find out what she loves most about farming, and see what veggies are cultivated on her farm.

Next, join junior farmers Leah and Abe Littman for a virtual tour of their family’s farm. See how tomatoes are grown in a greenhouse and in the field, find out when different crops are ready to harvest, see a tractor, and meet some adorable, cabbage-loving goats.
