The Patterson family has been operating Red Acre Farm, an organic, bio-dynamic farm and CSA, for ten years. Symbria and her daughter Sara are pillars of the local food movement in Utah, and recently spearheaded the successful effort to make herd shares legal in Utah. However, their work would not have been possible without the constant support of Symbria’s husband Lynn, who built their infrastructure and worked as a contractor to help support the growth of the farm.
Lynn Patterson passed away suddenly and unexpectedly Tuesday night, March 24. Friends have started a GoFundMe site so Symbria and Sara can continue their excellent work in the community and the state. The money will be used to hire farm hands and for funeral expenses.
Sue and I often bought food from Red Acre Farm when we lived in Cedar City and know this hard-working family. Any contribution will be hugely appreciated.
