Different kinds of tomatoes, including red pear in the photo, are raised at the Cloverleigh Farm in Columbia. Susan Mitchell, who runs the farm, transitioned from a science teacher to a farmer as the first generation farmer in her family. “The story of having to move my farm many, many times, and the challenge of finding farmland that was available and appropriate for what I needed, that I could somehow financially make that work, is really the big obstacle to most farmers who are first generation,” Mitchell said.
