David Desmond, Lost Creek Farm David Desmond, founding farmer:
I grew up in Pennsylvania, playing baseball, swimming and never having a thought about agriculture.  I attended college at Penn State and began to take some soil classes in my senior year.  Having no idea what I wanted to do after college I decided to hike the Appalachian trail because I figured, how hard could it be?  It wasn't easy but it turned out to be one of the defining events of my life.  Hiking day after day for almost 7 months allowed me to think about the meaning of life and to know for sure that I wanted to be outside, whatever I did.   I moved to the Northwest and started Lost Creek Farm in 2003.  It was slow going, but in 2006 I began farming full time.  I feel that growing healthy food while decreasing the environmental cost of dinner is the most fulfilling and enjoyable thing I can do.
