Tunbridge Hill Farm

Tunbridge Hill Farm

• For several years I have been maintaining a website I designed for our neighbors, Wendy and Jean Palthey, who have a beautiful vegetable farm. I not only designed the site for them, but I’m fortunate to go photograph their farm on occasion. There’s nothing like warm soil on your bare feet!

• The website has been switched to a WordPress-based structure with SSL security, using the GeneratePress template so the site is tablet/mobile-friendly. We recently added a WooCommerce store and shopping cart to the site, which helps Wendy and Jean to receive orders and payments before going to market.

Back Beyond Farm

Back Beyond Farm

• My neighbors Ray Williams and Liz York approached me to build a simple website to get the word out about Back Beyond Farm, their beautiful working farm in Tunbridge, Vt.

• The website is dressed up with George Lawrence’s wonderful illustration as a banner and their photos (with a few of mine mixed in). I set up the domain name, hosting and security certificate for the WordPress-based site. The GeneratePress template adapts across all platforms.

Green Spark Farm

• I met Mary Ellen and Austin Chadd when I photographed their local wedding a few years ago. The Chadds are now farming in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, and they came to me in frustration after trying to set up a website on their own.

• Using another farm’s website I did as a template, we customized it to make it their own, with pages and pages of photographs of their beautiful vegetables.

Fat Rooster Farm

• I first met Jennifer Megyesi when Nicola Smith and I did a profile of her family farm for Harvest: A Year in the Life of an Organic Farm in 2003. Jenn and I later worked on The Joy of Keeping Chickens and The Joy of Keeping a Root Cellar together.

• Fat Rooster’s website is a straight-forward HTML/CSS site that offers updates on Jenn’s farm work.
