Considering I grew up in New York City, many people are surprised that I decided to settle down on Nantucket. The truth is Nantucket has been a part of my life for longer than I can remember. I came for my first visit when I was only nine months old and returned at least once a year after that! My parents eventually bought a house in Cisco so Bartlett’s Farm quickly became a part of my Nantucket experience. My summers off from college were spent working at the farm “back in the day,” when the market was in the greenhouse, the parking lot was dirt and we occasionally had to wrangle Baby the cow back into his pen with a tempting bunch of beets. After graduating from college I worked a few other places on island before returning to the farm in 2008.
