2016 CSA Spring Jun 11: Welcome to our newest CSA members! Michael Clark has been farming in central Virginia since 1975 – ( 40 years), working with both field grown and greenhouse grown herbs and vegetables. Although he has an Engineering degree from UVA and has worked at GE, Sperry Marine, Nimbus Records, and Avcomm, Mike farms fulltime now. His love for the earth and nature and his vision of a looming collapse of the corporate and financial security that the previous generation was so accustomed to, drove him to decide to leave industry and farm full time beginning in 1990. He has faithfully been a vendor at the Charlottesville City Market for more than 30 years, rain or shine or wind or snow. His farm has won the “Chesapeake Bay Friendly” Clean Water Award from the Governor. His produce and culinary specialties have been served to dignitaries and film stars, making it to the table of the President of the United States and winning awards for Chefs as far away as Europe. Besides the technical nature of his work, his experience ranges from eggs, pesto, jellies and jams to distillation of essential oils and hydrosols from the high quality botanicals produced. Mike worked with The VABF Organic Certification Committee and was a participant in the creation of the original language that brought organic certification to Virginia in 1990. He is the host of “Meet The Farmer TV” at watch.MeetTheFarmer.tv on local cable and Free Speech TV satellite nationwide.
