This September, 55 people gathered at Laughing Child Farm (LCF) to partake of sweet-potato pizzas, trek to Haystack Mountain, and see how successfully sweet potatoes can be grown in New England. As one participant, Richard Cofrancesco noted, “It was a good way to get the message out about organic farming and raising sweet potatoes in Vermont. I always thought it was just a south of Georgia kind of thing. I think an event like this will prompt other young folks to keep agriculture going.” As his wife, Diane, added, “It was wonderful to see so many young families, who are obviously involved in agriculture, enjoying the event.” Both the VLT and NOFA have been strong supporters of LCF, which is owned by Timothy Hughes-Muse his wife, Brooke, and their four giggling daughters. LCF borders Barbara Moore’s family farm in Pawlet, VT and abundantly supplies The Good Table with their lush sweet potatoes.
