In Conversation: What’s your favorite fruit?

Rick says that his favorite fig variety, “Melissa” , is named after the famous Allman Brothers song about a woman who was as sweet as a fig.

The Knolls describe their farm as “an organism unto itself, with its own rhythm and personality.”

Over time, their land evolved to become an
extremely productive agro-ecosystem
that produces over 150 different products.
