Here's our 2nd post in our little blog series to showcase our wonderful apprentices here at Swallowtail Farm. If you haven't had the pleasure to meet one of our fine 2016 apprentices, this will give you a quick glimpse at who these people are. Today we are featuring our fantastic apprentice Cady Arruda. Make sure to say Hi to her when you see her at market.

Where are you from?

Westport, Massachusetts

What are you most looking forward to as an apprentice at SF?

As an apprentice at swallowtail farm I am most looking forward to expanding my knowledge in sustainable agriculture so I too can one day successfully manage my own farm. 

If you could cross-breed two plants on the farm to make a dream food, what would they be?

If I could cross-breed two plants on the farm to make a dream food I would most definitely cross a hibiscus with a strawberry. It just so happens hibiscus's are my favorite flower & they are great for tea! And strawberries have been my favorite fruit forever. Not quite sure how these two would taste paired together but harvesting a plant like this would bring the biggest smile to my face.  

Tell us something funny or unique about you?

I can recite almost every line of the movie "Lilo and Stitch" (it's my favorite)
