Tianna Kennedy is co-owner of Star Route Farm and founder/manager of the 607 csa.  She lived a myriad of past lives in Tucson, Arizona, the Bay Area, Nottingham, England and Brooklyn, New York, but has been farming in the Catskills for seven years, now.  She is beyond thrilled with this year's crew.

Jason arrived in the Catskills in April, with some years' experience in farming, looking for land of his own. After meeting Walter and Tianna he decided to work with them for the season as he continued his searches. So goes the official story. Actually, he just kind of showed up, a wandering pilgrim, no one quite knows where from, and he has been hanging around. He can generally be found roaming around the fields, talking to the plants and struggling to realize the universal perfection of rocks.

Elsa Weintraub spent the hotter months of 2016 hauling both herself and SRF veggies across Delaware County while manning the booth at the Delhi Farmers Market, fussing with CSA stuff, and doing general farm labor. Originally from Nyack, NY, Elsa arrived in the Catskills as a mail order bride. After a brief adjustment period she now lives happily in East Meredith with her lady and cat. She has cooked a lot of rice.

While harvesting fresh veggies for the weekly CSA, Ryan ensures quality by taste testing all the carrots like a rabbit, all the arugula like a beetle, and all the cucumber like a gopher. He's working his way through college. He has a wild pet chipmunk named Sir Chester Chestnut Chesterfield.

Susannah Ball is thrilled to be returning for a second season at Star Route Farm. She is originally from the Midwest and sometimes it shows. Susannah works on her tan twice a week in the fields and can be found in Delhi on Wednesdays hawking star route vegetables at the farmers market booth. She also kills the Csa chickens every Thursday, does not make farm lunches, and lives in East Meredith with a sexy ass bitch and a cat named Buttons.

Dante Rosano came to Star Route from Arizona for the lush fields, moonlit canoe rides, and summer wine. He has now settled for cheep beer, peanut butter sandwiches, washing hundreds of pounds of vegetables, and fixing broken things. Dante feels right at home, loves all his new Star Route friends, and has forgiven his old friend Tianna for implying that coming to Star Route would have any resemblance of a vacation.

Daniel Bertalot came to the farm all the way from Texas (or Washington depending on who you ask) seeking solitude and in turn met a group of wonderful people he now calls friends. His stay was brief but he remains involved with the farm from a remote location. He is based out of a small, obscure town in southeastern Washington. He helps produce content for the SRF zine 'Dawn Society' and returns favors with bad line drawings.   Do you have questions or comments?  Contact Us and we'll get back to you after we pat the dirt out of our clothes and wash our hands.
