A loan of $10,000 helped fund a Microgreen Harvester which will speed up and expand our sales to restaurants.


Tom's story

I grew up in Westchester County, New York and moved to California for several years. The cross country road trip I embarked on made me realize how precious our environment is. Each time I visited my family I drove back, making that journey 8 times. In 2012 I completed a dream of mine which was to drive from New York to Alaska.

After working in the film industry I moved back to NY and work as a film editor in Manhattan. During my train commutes I read a lot and discovered how unhealthy our food system is. The amount of toxic chemicals and pesticides allowed in the US scared me which led me to start growing on my own. Fable became a dream of mine and in January of 2015 I started on that journey. My wife, Kristin, has become the Event Planner, and together we host seasonal Farm Fests bringing in dozens of local small businesses who can sell there products during the festival. This past Fall we hosted over 700 guests.

In 2018 we also expanded our Market, growing our CSA from 40 members to over 150 with our new "Farm Card". It provides CSA members with flexibility and choice rather than a pre-determined set of produce. I'd like to keep expanding the farm, growing on more land, as well as continue with the success of our Market by selling more locally made products that support other farms and small businesses. We also partner with local chefs who come and cook on the weekends using produce from the farm. Customers can walk around the farm, enjoy lunch, and shop in our Market while visiting. I would love to continue bringing chefs in more often, truly embracing the name Fable: From Farm to Table.


This loan is special because:

This Kiva loan helps a farmer grow his business by purchasing the necessary equipment to harvest faster.
