Jillian and I have always worked with our hands. It might sound strange, but the biggest difference between farming and the art world is the natural surroundings. That connection to the elements was missing for us during our time at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, but really the leap from museum to field started with our love of great food. We like to cook simply with the best ingredients we can get our hands on, so we started growing vegetables on family land in Buckingham. The idea for Perryhill Produce hit me while sowing tomato seed.
