Meet Luis and Stacia, owners and farmers at La Caridad Farm in Parksley. La Caridad will be providing meat and eggs for the Serving up the Shore dinner on August 19.
Stacia – a “from’ere” who grew up in Parksley – and Luis – a “come’ere” originally from Cuba – started their farm in 2013. “I come from a background where we basically raised all the meat that we eat,” said Luis, “and that’s something I strongly believe in.”
Luis and Stacia find time out of their busy schedules – which include full-time jobs – to raise chickens, pigs, ducks and rabbits. They also have a personal garden, which they use to feed themselves as well as their animals.
