Wesley Bascom grew up on a working dairy farm in the verdant valleys of the Connecticut River. He studied Ecological Design and Environmental Science at the University of Vermont – graduating in 2010. After pursuing interests in sustainable food and resilient landscape development in West Virginia and abroad, he returned to Vermont to continue these explorations and deepen his connection to the local community. To earn his daily bread, Wesley builds all kinds of wooden structures (farm to finish carpentry). David Huck grew up in the teeming suburbs of the San Francisco Bay Area. Upon decamping to Vermont, by way of Oberlin College, David followed his love of mountains and rivers to a hillside farm in Cabot where he manages a farm to table catering business. His fascination with complex systems and years of experience living in the rural landscape of Vermont and Ohio nurtured an interest in Lean, grass-based protein production.
