Mike and Judy Cunningham are the founders of Country Gardens Farm. They have been teaching people how to grow, cook, and preserve good organic food for over 10 years.
Mike's plant love began in high school when his father helped him build a greenhouse in the back yard. After a degree in horticulture and a few years as a store manager with Pike Nurseries he began Southern Perennial Growers and Country Gardens Nursery. In 2011 the focus changed to growing organic vegetables to sell directly to the public through a CSA subscription model.
Country Gardens Farm grows a wide assortment of year-round vegetables on 3 acres of the third-generation family farm by using greenhouses in the winter.
Mike with lots of input from Judy authored his book "Seven Steps to an Organic Vegetable Garden"
You will hear Mike's openness in sharing his successful methods for growing good food in our inaugural episode 001 of "The Garden Question" Podcast.
