Monte Skarsgard wants you to know who grew your peach (Paul in Colorado). Same goes for the fresh corn (Dean in Moriarty) and the tomatoes (Christopher in Velarde).
It’s part of Skarsgard’s approach for his 17-year-old company, Skarsgard Farms, which makes weekly deliveries of organically grown food to at least 1,500 people, mostly in the Albuquerque metropolitan area. “It’s kind of my own personal journey with it,” Skarsgard says. “The more connected I feel to my food, the more connected I just feel to my own life, and things just make more sense to me.”
