Scott Chang-Fleeman of Shao Shan Farm


Our 40th @realfarmercare recipient - Scott Chang-Fleeman @odetochoy of Shao Shan Farm @shaoshanfarm in Bolinas, CA.


Scott writes, “Shao Shan Farm is a 5.5-acre certified organic farm in Bolinas, CA that focuses on growing Asian heritage varieties. I started this farm last year at 24 years old to provide a resource for high quality organic produce for Asian American chefs, community, and grocers in the Bay Area. Many Asian American farmers of my generation have experienced isolation from the lack of diversity in the sustainable food movement, and many consumers have had to sacrifice eating traditional foods to align with their environmentally and socially just sourcing ethics. Everyday I work on my farm to try and change that. Farming is a lifestyle that encompasses every minute of your day and brings immensely personal highs and lows. I am so fortunate for the work that @realfarmercare is doing to extend the conversation of self-care that is often overlooked by farmers. My self-care activity is a dinner out in Santa Cruz with my farmer friends!” #realfarmercare #shaoshanfarm
