A fourth generation Vermonter with farming in his blood. Grew up on Twenty Mile Stream with cows, meat birds, pigs and vegetable fields to care for during his teenage and years. Jeremiah enlisted in the Marine Corps directly after high school and served 8 years for his country. In 2010 he decided it was time to farm again and began Little Village Farm with his wife.
Also a Vermonter, but of the first generation, Cara never imagined her life would include daily chores and the consuming life of a farmer. Cara earned her BA degree in American Sign Language/Linguistics and then her Master’s degree in Early Education with a specialty in Deaf Education. She loves their Little Village Farm and enjoys field time as well as her position as the business manager of the endeavor.
A native Vermonter, Julia Ravlin is a home economist, textile artist, and passionate gardener. In the winter of 2012 Julia completed the UVM Extension Master Gardener class and learned the art of milking cows at a local working dairy farm. She has experience working at small organic homesteads to large-scale farms and she also spent some time helping out with weeding and general maintenance of the medicinal herb garden at Mt. Ascutney Hospital.
In November 2011, Sarah asked the Universe for "a place to stay, food to eat, and money to pay for a storage unit" as she was completing her Junior year of Green Mountain College. Her query brought her to Little Village Farm, in 2012, as their first intern. After graduating GMC with a degree in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Production, she returned for a second season at LVF, solidifying her place as a member of our farming family. After moving away to raise a family of her own, she has now returned to live, breath, and dream of one day owning and running her own family farm.
In addition to farming, Sarah enjoys the outdoors, traveling, live music, and sewing. Look for some of her handmade goods in the LVF farmstand this season!
