Over the course of these next few weeks, as we ease into our new blogspace, we’ll be introducing both ourselves and our Farm with posts on who we are, what we grow, and how to cook with that produce.
Hey Y’all! I’m Cody, a rising junior and American Studies major. I am too excited to be on the farm this summer; after having spent the long and grueling New Haven winter indoors, this southern boy just had to get outside in the sunshine and dirt. The YSFP and the Yale Farm are two of the most enriching and dynamic experiences of my Yale career, and I couldn’t imagine spending this summer any other way.
Not only do I love farming myself after having raised bantam chickens all my childhood (a practice from my great grandma), but I love the study of farms. Hopefully, I’ll soon begin research into the sexual politics of the farm and the radical queer potential within the local foods movement. My projects this summer are to learn to make a mean latte, practice yoga, and write the first act to a queer space odyssey.
