Laughing Earth Farm
The transition from the Bulson family to the Metzger family is newly-complete. Zack and Annie Metzger are now the owners and proprietors of the farm, which has been under cultivation for over 200 years. They have changed the name, which is likely the first of many gradual changes, but they will all be changes for the better as the farm improves and intensifies.
For the 2016 season, Zack and Annie are joined by Aaron Thomas, a past intern, who is managing the vegetable gardens.
Zack, Annie, and Aaron are also joined on the farm by Zack and Annie's daughter Willa, born in 2014, as well as Houdini the farm dog and a plethora of cats.
The farm itself is a historic place, with roots dating back to the 18th century with the Morrison family. It is on the NYS register of historic places, and includes a charming Morrison family cemetery, recently renovated thanks to the Brunswick Historical Society.
The name Laughing Earth is inspired by a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson, titled Hamatreya.
