Anna Racer and Peter Skold
Have you always been a farmer?
No, we have not always been farmers. 2014 will be our fourth season operating Waxwing Farm. Before working on farms we led youth wilderness trips in the Boundary Waters.
What’s your favorite or least favorite vegetable?
Anna’s favorite vegetable is beets and Pete’s favorite vegetable is tomatoes. Harley’s favorite vegetable is peas!
What’s your favorite thing to get from other vendors at the market?
We never eat breakfast before coming to the market so that we can get coffee from Roundtable and a pastry from Patisserie 46.
Do you have a favorite market memory?
We always look forward to the first market of every season, as it’s a chance to reconnect with our customers!
If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and why?
If Pete could have any superpower it would be to clone himself.
What do you do when you’re not doing work for your farm?
When Pete is not farming, he brews beer in our basement. Anna likes to read and go for walks with our dog Greta. But mostly we love spending time with our 4.5 month old baby, Harley!
