A mile of gravel road crosses the Winooski River over an old covered bridge, leading to Cate Farm. On a beautiful clear bright summer day, the long and lanky Richard Wiswall saunters over to warmly welcome me. Even though it’s a Monday morning in July in Vermont, during what should be the busy season, he’s full of smiles and exudes warmth and ease. Instead of a stressed-out, disheveled grower, there is a composed and relaxed man greeting me.

How can he manage to be so comfortable, especially at this time of year? Because he’s a life-long professional grower who’s got his systems down, his team in place, and his priorities in alignment with his goals. He wants great crops, a healthy lifestyle, and to be a vital member of a vibrant community.
