Clasby took over her farm from another tenant three years ago and poured her life savings into building it up and growing her business, supplying restaurants like Spago, Gjelina, Eataly and Rose Café. In a short time, she earned a reputation for being something of a produce whisperer — if a chef is looking for something, Clasby won’t stop until she finds it. Need some bergamot or Buddha’s hand? Clasby is on the case. Her network of growers takes her to different farmers’ markets and restaurants in the area, where she also sells produce — lettuces, beets, fava beans, potatoes and English snap peas — that she grows herself.
