Media

The Dyer Family Organic Farm (home of Dick’s “Pretty Good!” Garlic) has been featured in multiple publications, from hometown newspapers to national magazines, even the 2013 Harris’ Farmer’s Almanac 2013 Seasonal Gardening Guide! We are happy to be interviewed (or even filmed) for an article and will do our best to accommodate a tight deadline, but understandably, our farm’s own field and market needs are our first priority. Please use contact information provided on the Contact Us page.

Some of the many articles in which Dick or Diana have been interviewed or our farm mentioned:

  • Hobby Farms Magazine – September-October 2011 – “The Great Divide: Bridge the Gap” between your city life and your hobby-farm dream with these tips – by Lisa Kivirist (To be honest, I hesitated to consent to this interview because we are not a hobby farm. So the writer emphasized how we were moving from our home to the farm, trying to balance those two parts of our life for two years.)
