about the apprentices
Evan Istamboulian - 2016 Apprentice
Beginning in high school, Evan began spending much of his time learning about the world of small-scale agriculture. At his home in Rochester, Michigan, he self-studied through books and any information-rich media on the internet. While on a trip to visit his wife in British Columbia, Canada, he took the opportunity to shadow a small-scale vegetable farmer. This left him with a tangible taste of the physical aspects of farming that he'd only yet read and listened about. He left this experience with the desire to pursue hands-on work. Evan found Sarah while in search of an educational opportunity that would be guided by an experienced small-scale farmer. He looks forward to one day having a farm of his own with his wife, Cassie.
