In the spring of 2007 Todd and Julia McDonald moved from their Chicago apartment to a trailer just 50 miles south of Chciago outside of a town called Manteno. Between rows and rows of conventional corn and soybean fields now sits one narrow plot, two starry-eyed homesteaders and an ambitions plan for a different kind of farm they named Peasants’ Plot. Peasants’ Plot is in its fourth season as a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) organic vegetable farm. Both Julia and Todd fulfill vital roles in the business, Todd as Farmer and Julia as Marketing/Bookeeping/HR director. Both work off-the-farm jobs, too. She will share her thoughts on this new model of farming and the truth behind the romance!
