Removing The Dead, Feeding The Living - MTPR

Monday, September 05, 2016

I found an ad on Craigslist and it said 50 percent share profit. And so I quit my job and came to Montana from Utah, that week.CN: Smith and Myers are now farming a few miles southeast of Stevensville in the Bitterroot Valley, on land owned by Marta Meengs and Tim Scufca. When I go there, Smith extends his arm and points to something that looks like a railroad car without wheels.MS: I like saying that we have an architect on staff now because Tim is a retired architect. He helped design our wash station, he re-designed a shipping container for us to live in. So it’s kind of like a modified tiny house with 3 compartments: one for Kenny, one for myself, and one for an office for us.CN: Directly in front of us are rows and rows of green plants surrounded by trampled weeds that crunch under our feet as we walk out to take a look. "What’s growing out here."MS: So we’ve got right here the red Russian kale, the Brussels sprouts, savoy cabbage, the red cabbage. And then some broccoli here. And then we’ve got our lettuce beds, our squash section.CN: And how many acres of land?MS: It’s 15 acres total, of which about 2 acres is growing vegetable right now. And we actually received an NRSC grantCN: NRCS stands for Natural Resources Conservation ServiceMS: to expand to 3-and-a-half acres next year and to put it under drip irrigation. So the federal contract obligates us to use water conservation measures and basically stitch out tape across the landscape. So that’s really going to be helpful so we don’t have to bring in our own hand lines and basically, the process, water weeds.CN: At the end of August, the crops are bountiful, and these hardworking guys are delivering truckloads of healthy, organic food to their weekly customers. And they have big plans for the future.MS: We are not just farmers. We are solar energy commodities brokers. You know, that’s where I want to take this is to really participate in the transformation of the land.CN: While that transformation is underway, Smith’s night job as a remover is still necessary to help pay the bills, and he has a good attitude about funeral home work.MS: It’s just like farming in the sense that you really feel alive doing it. Like you’re very present. There is no distraction when someone is weeping in front of you. You’re not on your phone. You’re in the moment.CN: But Kenny Myers’ farm moments are sometimes challenging while his business partner is away.KM: I just think I need more help. It’s really hard when I don’t have another person here to help every day, because then all the work gets on me.Missoula Grain and Vegetable Company on the Web...
