Tomm Becker, owner of Sunseed Farm was named Edible WOW magazine’s Young Farmer of the Year at the Live Love Local Festival at Detroit’s Eastern Market on Saturday, August 25th. Criteria for the honor was a commitment to excellence in sustainable practices in the profession of farming, and community involvement. The award came with a cash prize and a consultation with Whole Foods’ produce buyers to become a supplier for it’s regional stores. Becker started Sunseed with his wife Trilby three years ago, and was voted Best Local Farm in Current Magazine’s 2012 Best of Washtenaw County. Through Sunseed’s CSA program the public can become members by paying up-front for 16 weeks of veggies during three share seasons, Winter, Summer and Fall. Each week members pick up a share of the crop that is enough to feed the whole family with varieties of over seventy different vegetables according to what’s in season.
