Roslyn McNicholl greets regulars at the market on Saturday, June 1, 2019. As for advice for young female farmers just starting out, McNicholl said, “Make sure when you wake up in the morning you love what you do and when you go to bed at night, if you love it as much as you loved it when you woke up in the morning, then it’s good for you. If that keeps happening, then keep going.”
McNicholl harvests Spring radishes in her fields. “In Whatcom/Skagit County/NW Washington, I think people are definitely not only willing to support as a female and farming but go out of their way and want to support just a little bit of diversity in the industry.” McNicholl shared.
