We are a hand-tended microfarm located in Westport, MA. We grow about 1 acres of produce using natural and organic methods. Since our produce is hand-tended we can ensure that our produce is of the utmost quality. 

OUR NAME

"What the heck does aeonian mean and how do you pronounce it?"

 

Aeonian

ē-ˈō-nē-ən (ee-o-nee-an)

: means indefinite or everlasting.

 

The name speaks to our holistic approach to farming grounded in responsible land stewardship and the cumulative enrichment of the soil.

THE FARMERS

KATE

Kate started out her post-college working life as operations manager at a research institute in Washington, DC. She abandoned her desk chair after she fell in love with farming during an around the world journey volunteering on farms. She worked for a year as a crew member at Riverbank Farm in Roxbury, CT (where she met Andrew). Then worked for a year as assistant manager at Four Season Farm in Harborside, ME. Kate loves to bake sourdough bread, stink up the house with fermentation experiments, and forage for (easy to identify) mushrooms.

ANDREW

This is Andrew's seventh season doing what he loves most. He started out interning at Brooklyn Grange in NYC, before finding a home at Riverbank Farm in Roxbury, CT. He worked at Riverbank for 4 years in the field and at the Westport, CT and New Canaan, CT farmers markets. He then moved to Harborside, ME with Kate to spend a year as assistant manager at Four Season Farm. Andrew loves to make pizza, eat pizza, and plan for the next time he will make pizza.

OUR LOGO

Our beautiful logo was created by the incredible printmaker and illustrator, Rosanna Morris. Here are some snippets about her from her website:   

"Rosanna has worked in the realm of print for over 10 years. She first encountered woodcut at 19 during her foundation diploma in Bristol, UK, Where she created huge life size portraits of British farming and pasted them on abandoned walls around the city.

She went on to study Illustration at Camberwell School of Art, where she developed her own unique style, evoking the traditional feel of British Wood Engravings within the aesthetic of contemporary illustration.

Rosanna has also long been interested in sustainability, food sovereignty and growing food. Many of her prints explore themes of agriculture, horticulture and the natural world. She believes in the use of print as a medium of communication and the exploration of ideas and is always seeking to inspire with her work."
