Patty & Erick Taylor are Devon Point Farm's owners. Patty's interest in growing began in rural New Jersey where she grew up with a 20' x 30' family garden. A few years after graduating from Univ. of RI in 1993, she completed URI's Master Gardening Course. She's been growing ever since. 2010 was Patty's first year running Devon Point Farm's CSA Share Program. Erick wanted to be a farmer since he was a young boy, and he was always fascinated with the rare, heritage breed of Devon Cattle. After graduating from the Univ. of RI in 1993, Erick purchased his first farm property in RI. Finding the poor sandy, gravelly soils were less than ideal for growing pastures let alone crops, Erick attended Univ. of Maine's Compost School and began enthusiastically composting to amend the poor soils. Now, years later, and three farm properties later, Erick and Patty finally have found a farm property with prime agricultural soils and her love of growing and Erick's love of composting and raising cattle continues!
