MEET YOUR FARMER
Patti Marie Travioli has been a lover of plants as long as she can remember. Born and raised in Michigan, as a child Patti enjoyed most of her time outdoors not realizing that she would be able to grow up and continue to spending the majority of her time enjoying nature and growing plants. It wasn’t until becoming a mother and attending Michigan State University to study horticulture that she realized the importance of our local food system and how eating nutrient rich and organic foods benefited not only us as humans, but how the practice of organic farming really helped all living creatures, the soil under our feet, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the whole planet. Instead of thinking globally as we were told in the 90’s, Patti started to think locally with ways to feed her own family which then led to finding ways to feed the people in her community. A wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, but mostly, a steward of the land while organically growing culinary and medicinal plants.
