Claire takes care of all CSA operations, wholesale, markets, memberships and marketing. She is an ex-art dealer and a writer who lives in Chicago with her dog Emil. She loves helping people, spending time with her family, with art and in nature, and, of course, eating good food.




Jerry is pretty much an angel and we can't believe our lucky stars that he works with us. He keeps the farm running by doing everything from managing everybody to fixing machines to laying down drip tape. Jerry is so brilliant he once built a pallet system for a big corporation and they patented it and sold it for millions of dollars! He lives nearby with his partner Jane and his very well-trained dogs.




Hailing from the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Northwest, Annalisa has been a full time graphic designer and photographer for the last decade, working in-house for agencies and freelance with clients largely in the outdoor industry. 

With a penchant for spending as much time in nature as possible, and a passion for taking care of our bodies from the inside out through productive movement and a mindful, intentional diet, she aims to pass her efforts onto others as a form of physical and spiritual energy exchange.  

Compound that with growing up amongst her father’s architecture firm in Seattle’s Pike Place Market, as well as in his fine dining restaurants since the age of 12, needless to say, her recent move to the midwest and subsequent transition into agriculture and organic farming at Tomato Mountain Farm was a no-brainer. 

She’s a gap-filling, multiple-hat wearing, jack of all trades, which bodes well for organic farming, and a serendipitous fit within the Tomato Mountain family.




This is Mike, he used to work at the farm, and now helps direct the traffic at our Chicago warehouse and get all your boxes ready. His positive attitude and commitment to being present and focused has really made a huge difference for us. He's interested in the intersection between farming and psychology and how farming can help people heal.
