Farmer, chef, and activist Adam Welly co-founded Wayward Seed Farm with Jaime Moore, whose passion for agriculture and experience in hospitality completes the business side of the team.
Starting in 2006 as a farm-to-restaurant project on one acre in Sandusky County, they grew more than 100 different varietals of food in an attempt to offer the best products to local chefs. Quickly seeing the need to connect consumers searching for honestly grown produce to the farms that provide it, Adam and Jaime started a CSA program.
Today, with 30 acres of land, Adam works hard to return the fertility to the soil that he farms, specifically by perfecting Wayward Seed's soil-building program. The team also works with local communities through outreach and donation, and fellow farmers by creating new markets. While still providing a CSA to their members, they are proud that Wayward Seed Farm is a founding member of Great River Organics.
