Green Winter Farm, run by Jackson Cox and partner Hannah Knopp, is tucked behind the Nelson County Community Center on 6 beautiful acres of a previous 400 acre apple orchard.  Jackson grew up learning from his grandfather, who grew and canned vegetables and had a passion for building, both of which he passed to Jackson.  Green Winter grows diverse crops with a large focus on hot peppers, turmeric and ginger. This year they are experimenting with Jamaican Roselle which will produce small sweet fruits good for jam’s and jelly’s. They also keep bees and grow lovely pumpkins, squash, lavender, and elderberries. Green Winter now has a greenhouse, 2 hoop houses, and a 70′ raised bed for fig trees. With this clear passion for land and farming, we are excited to see what happens next on this farm!
