The Farmers I Know
Deep Roots Farm: Ann Sutton
March 7, 2021
Ann Sutton or “Farmer Gale” is the owner and operator of Deep Roots Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. I met Farmer Gale while managing a farmer's market in Washington D.C. over the summer. One Sunday I had the chance to get to know her even better when I was asked to step in to work with her and her mother at her stand, prepping consumer orders to be rung up. We laughed, gave out bitter melon recipes, and when I started feeling the heat, they revived me with some of her mother’s homemade sorrel juice. Farmer Gale is dedicated to regenerative practices and building community through growing food.
