Faces of Ag

Susan Murray and Tony Wood

Jerry and Cheryl Wareck

Apponagansett Farm is a small family farm in Dartmouth, owned and run by Susan Murray and Tony Wood. Their journey to farming was along a slightly winding path. They are both trained as biologists and met while studying bat biology in Malaysia. After finishing their research, they landed in Louisiana, got married and began to get involved in the local food movement. Together they decided to jump into farming and have never looked back. They spent some time working on farms in Maryland and Mississippi and eventually found their way to Massachusetts, working as farm apprentices at Holiday Brook Farm in Dalton for two years. In the fall of 2011 with a new baby in tow, they moved to Susan’s hometown and started Apponagansett Farm. More here »
