    To anyone looking for an opportunity to work with a great grower, I highly recommend Ryan Casey and Blue House Farm. Ryan is a well-organized farmer with high standards and a deep commitment to his land and his people. I respect him both as a grower and as a friend. This is a great chance for folks to join a team and do some serious farming.
