Our Three Main Vegetable Farmers
Oldham County, KY
Rootbound Farm is owned by Bree Pearsall and Ben Abel, with children Sage and Hazel Grace. They are tenant farmers, dividing their 160 acres between sheep production and certified organic vegetable. Started in 2010, Rootbound provides nearly 50 percent of the produce purchased by New Roots’ Fresh Stop Markets, which provides 35 percent of their farm’s income. Although neither grew up on a farm, both caught the “bug” at different phases of their lives: Ben as a young man whose parents were avid gardeners, Bree when she was offered a summer job picking tomatoes between college semesters.
