Fiddler’s Green Farm is one of the newer organic farms in the Treasure Valley, yet they are one of the largest suppliers of local produce to the Boise Co-op. They grow over 50 varieties of edible crops and over 100 varieties of flowers (some of which are also edible). Located on 6 leased acres in the Dry Creek Valley, they currently cultivate 4 acres. Due to their small scale, they take pride in being a “high-tough” farm and doing pretty much everything by hand.
While their initial impetuses for getting into farming vary from a penchant for punk rock music and vegetarianism to studying ecology, to being dismayed at conventional farming practices, all the Fiddler’s guys have this in common: they are anti-establishment. It’s not an uncommon theme in the farming world, especially among younger farmers. And at a time when the average age of a farmer in the US is over 60, we’re excited to see these guys pursue a better way of caring for the land.
