Virginia Farmer Focuses on Widening Access to Sustainable Food
An interview in The Guardian showcases farmer Chris Newman, who founded Sylvanaqua Farms with his wife, Annie. Sylvanqua is a 120-acre operation in northern Virginia that produces pasture-raised chicken, eggs, and pork and grass-fed beef. The farm donates half its harvest to food aid organizations, in order to widen access to sustainably produced food. In this interview, Newman discusses how his Black and indigenous heritage influences his farming, farming scale, and food equity.
