Maggie & Jamie Edelstein, Owners of Wyllie Fox Farm

In January, Jamie Edelstein CALS ’97 assumed the office of president of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY), an organization of consumers, gardeners, and farmers that has been working to create a sustainable regional food system since 1983.

Jamie and his wife Maggie own Wyllie Fox Farm in Cato, N.Y., where they grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and chickens. They are shifting this year from a CSA (community supported agriculture) operation to selling wholesale.

Jamie admits he was skeptical of the idea of growing organically when he was a student. “I actually only started looking at organic ag at the 2005 NOFA-NY winter conference,” he recalls. “I guess I’ve come a long way in the past six years.”
