Green Jeans Market Farm's Story

Although Andrea is the far more experienced (and the smarter) farmer, Green Jeans Market Farm's story begins with Jason.  Jason started the farm on the Otrembiak family farm in Saratoga Springs in October of 2017.   

Jason was able to prepare GJMF's first onion and garlic beds and get them sown before the winter, that first year.  With little more experience than a year interning at a local farm, Jason started small and grew the farm for the first three of its years. 

Jason's vision and determination enabled the farm to grow in its beginning.  A vision of growing food to sell and share locally, only with organic methods, and for his friends and neighbors helped Jason when his experience, as a new farmer, wasn't up to the task alone.

Cultivating on about 1/4 of an acre the farm's first and second years, and in the third-year doubling that and enlisting the help of Andrea to initiate her in the Green Jeans Market Farm Chaos.  Andrea's extensive training helped shape the direction of the farm and with her added effort they were able to grow more produce and even expand the farm to about 2/3 an acre.  

Andrea got her first taste of farming 20 years ago when she worked for a local vegetable farm between her first and second years of graduate school for social work. That summer was transformative and eventually she left her career in social work to farm full time.  

After about 15 years of growing and working with beautiful farms, Andrea decided to join up with Jason and run their own farm.  Together, Jason and Andrea, now married, are entering their 4th season as co-owners of Green Jeans Market Farm.  

Andrea and Jason continue to work at the Otrembiak family farm, improving the soil there, maintaining the land, and stewarding natural resources like the woods and streams that run through the 120-acre farm. 

Thank you for reading about our farm.  We hope to continue to serve our community both in and around Saratoga Springs for our seventh year and beyond.  See you at the market!
