This week at Nature’s Corner we are excited to feature Muth Family Farm. Bob and Leda Muth provide us with Local, Fresh, Organic Sungold tomatoes, bi-color corn, red chard, and many other amazing seasonal veggies. The farm is certified Organic and has been heralded as one of the most sustainable farms in the Mid-Atlantic reigon. Read more about the Muth Family and their wonderful farm.
Bob Muth grew up on a farm, raising crops with his father while holding a second job. Bob left left New Jersey after college to work as a cooperative extension agent in South Carolina. After three years he returned to his home state of New Jersey to work on his Master’s Degree.
“One day, I looked out the window and realized I’d rather be sitting on a tractor seat than working in a lab, and I’ve never been back.” In 1990, Bob returned to farming full time, and has never looked back.
“I hear all this gloom and doom about farming, but I like where I am and I wouldn’t change a thing about how I got here.” It is truly a labor of love.
Through the years, Muth Farm has gained recognition as one of the leading regional farmers in areas of sustainable agriculture, soil development, community supported agriculture and organic farming. Muth Farm recently received the 2007 Mid-Atlantic Master Farmer Award for his work in these areas and more.
