Doing Nothing could be best approach
At Long Hungry Creek Farm, Jeff Poppen has the farming experience to know that sometimes the best approach is to sit back and let Mother Nature do her thing.
Jeff says his parents loved growing plants on their Illinois farm, and he credits them for his passion for growing. He’s made his living growing the best organic vegetables he can. Jeff acknowledges he has learned through experience over four decades. He is also an avid student of old-time farming methods, the way folks grew stuff before all of the chemicals in farming. He is compelled to try and shorten the learning curve for other gardeners. Jeff adds, “My wish is that my love for growing organically inspires others.”
