Meet the Farmers

Holly Whitesides and Andy Bryant have been farming organically together since 2010.  In the spring of 2012, they bought the land that would become Against the Grain, and in the 2013 growing season, they were introduced to Biodynamic farming practices.  Growing food that nurtures a whole human being, body, soul and spirit, has always been a shared passion for Holly and Andy. 

The Biodynamic approach provides a framework of principles that guide the farm's growth and development in a holistic way.  Holly has been farming full time since 2012, and in October of 2014, the farm welcomed Beatrice Lytton Bryant to the family.  In the spring of 2015, Andy transitioned to farming full time, which has allowed the farm to grow by leaps and bounds.  The farm welcomed another family member, Corva Lucilla Bryant, in April of 2018.  We hope that our love of the farm and our passion for growing nutritious food comes through in the products that we offer our community.
