About Scott and Tanya
I am Scott Hertzberg. With my wife Tanya, I have a vegetable farm in southern Maryland. We grow mostly for a CSA [Community Supported Agriculture] serving people close to us in Washington DC. As is the case for most Jews involved in farming today, we grew up in the suburbs and are new to farming. However, like a surprising number of American Jews we do not have to look far to find some agricultural roots. Tanya's father spent summers at his uncle's large and for a long time successful egg farm in Tom's River, New Jersey. My great grandfather briefly had a go at dairy farming in upstate New York and one grandmother had fond memories of visiting relatives on a farm in Muscatine, Iowa near her childhood home in Davenport.
