Stoney Lonesome Farm
Esther Mandelheim Elliot and her husband Pablo run Stoney Lonesome Farm, a family owned organic operation in Gainesville, VA, not far from Washington, DC.
I photographed Esther for a cover story for Lilith, a highly-regarded Jewish women's magazine.
She is originally from Russia, growing up in St. Petersburg, and later in White Plains, NY.
Great people, doing good work, growing wonderful produce. They run a friendly and capable community-supported agriculture (CSA) business, helping local folks get the best farm-fresh vegetables direct from the farm to their tables.
Check 'em out.
