    Jesse Hatch- Stillman’s Farm - Organic Life in the City

    Jesse Hatch- Stillman’s Farm - Organic Life in the City

    “Food is so impactful to our bodies, to animals, to the earth. My legacy would be to make people more aware of that.”

    Jesse Hatch, General Manager of Stillman’s Farm at the Boston Public Market, joins me to talk about life as a personal chef, the local farm scene and sustainable, sun lit, hydroponic farming. She also shares with me her philosophy of food prep with fresh produce.

    Continuing on the theme of “Eat Local”, she talks about small farming in Massachusetts and how important these local businesses have been during the pandemic.

    Stillman’s Farm coined the phrase “Conscientiously Grown” to describe their farming philosophy. Their processes go beyond the official certification rules of organic farming to embrace a more holistic approach, while embracing technologies, like hydroponics, to create food that is both healthy and sustainable.

    They are also leaders in the community, bringing together other small businesses to create programs to help educate and nurture people and make an impact on food scarcity.

    Cherry Bomb! The Podcast was developed as a spinoff project from The Sweet Blasts Series of limited edition photographs celebrating starting conversations about food, art and sustainable lifestyles. Cherry Bomb! and the rest of the series are available at https://www.theartofmattmckee.com

She took time out of her day prepping the next issue to talk with me about the current state of art in our tumultuous world, her self care evolution and her drive to promote the artists and institutions that we turn to everyday.

    She thoughtfully and articulately drives our conversation. I hope you find it as interesting as I did!
