FEATURED FARMER

⁠Julie has been in the culinary herb business for a long time. At age 19, she spent a summer cultivating her first field—about a half acre—of herbs for her father's food business. Several years later, she sold her first herbs and plants out of a farm stand at the Burlington Intervale. From there, the rest was history.⁠
