[+] Project Information

New Farmers is a collaborative project between photographer D. Bryon Darby, sociologist Paul Stock, and designer Tim Hossler. An observation of today's independent farmer, the project seeks to document and empower the first-generation, small-scale, and sustainable farmer. New Farmers was generously supported with a Starter Grant from The Commons with funds from the University of Kansas Office of Research and by a Collaborative Research Seed Grant from the Hall Center for The Humanities.

Farms include: Amy's Meats at the Homestead, Bauman's Cedar Valley Farm, Buller Family Farm, Hard Fifty Farm, Hoyland Farm, Mellowfields Urban Farm, Pinwheel Farm, Sacred Sun Cooperative Farm, and Sweet Love Farm.
