Description

My name is Jameson Knight. I have 10 years of experience in farming, nurseries, farms, landscape companies, creating 10+ food forests, building gardens, designing and installing aesthetic/edible landscaping plus more in Connecticut, Florida, Puerto Rico, Ireland, France and Italy.  I am co-owner of my business, Traveling Farmers, with my partner Allie Burns for the last two years.  Our business grows and sells herbs that are medicinal, culinary, fresh, dried, potted and infused into various herbal products.  We are scaling our business fast and with the help of many well known farming/landscaping/biodynamic/holistic veterans, masters of their crafts.  We have investors that are involved in Connecticut manufacturing of precision parts that seek to make a change in their lives from working with machines to wanting to work with plants/animals/earth to help their fellow humans.

I am a man of big dreams and visions, but I have the knowledge, skills and social wealth to pull off my practical dreams.  I am currently working with a few farms in Connecticut and Florida, mainly Evergreen Berry Farm in Connecticut and a food forest/nursery at my home in Thomaston, CT. Right now at Evergreen Berry Farm, we are biodynamically growing various herbs in rows and harvesting herbs in the pollinator meadow whilst perfecting our recipes, labels, packaging, pricing and efficiency, working out the kinks.  Like I said, we are scaling fast and drawing attention to our highest quality products.  We are called Traveling Farmers for a reason, cause we travel from farm to farm, event to event, market to market, town to town, state to, well you get it.  On our travels, we plant, harvest, sell, buy and talk to many people, but we still bunker down from time to time, season to season to grow our roots and get a good harvest to be ready for the future.  We are in the midst of putting up some bees at Evergreen Berry Farm.  I would like to have more access to farms for herbs, veggies, fruits, animals, weddings, holistic events, full moon gatherings, all things good for you, me and the cat down the street.  I am building my list of needs and wants, but trying to keep things simple, for example planting our herbs right now we are mulching beds on contour with free delivered wood chips, then transplanting with a farm grown/made compost/biochar mix.

But I want to work with the land owners and their visions, unless they are willing to hand over the reins of the farm 100%, that's great but I want to co-create with the farmers/land owners of Connecticut to regenerate our communities with ease and simplicity of organic farming.  So I ask you land owners, what are your visions and dreams for your life and the land?  What can we create together? Let's "travel" together and show people what farming can do for their lives.
