I wrote last summer of my visit to the Flint River Farm. They were recently cited in an article in the Economist:

“The five kinds of heirloom tomatoes on Joanna Lehrman’s and Roxanne Adair’s farm look delicious. Their tiny two-acre (0.8 hectare) farm also has a buzzing beehive and a hoop house, which protects produce in the winter.
