Farmer Ivor Chodkowski of Field Day Family Farm has been a friend of the Food Literacy Project since the beginning, and we are lucky to have a close relationship with someone who is committed to our mission and vision. Here, we’ve asked him to give you some insight on why he has decided to TURNIP FOR CHANGE, and how he likes to enjoy the summer through food.
