Cassidy Whipple owns and operates Frontier Farm, a 2.5 acre diversified vegetable and herb farm located at the Barlow Nature Preserve. Cassidy has almost a decade of sustainable agriculture experience under her belt, and holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Wildlife Conservation Biology from the University of Rhode Island. This combination of knowledge and skills guides her to be the best land steward she can be while operating a successful farm business.
Environmental stewardship, soil health, food accessibility, and community are Cassidy’s top priorities. Her vegetables and herbs are grown sustainably without synthetic chemicals or fertilizers, and 100% of the farm’s electricity consumption is offset by solar power. The farm utilizes a science-based regenerative approach and no-till methods whenever possible, focusing on soil health as the foundation for plant health.
Frontier Farm operates seasonally, selling produce through a CSA program, at the Farm Stand at Barlow, and at local farmers’ markets. Keep an eye out for their annual plant sale in May! You can find more information and stay up to date by visiting their website at www.frontierfarmri.com.
