Steph Gaylor founded Invincible Summer Farms in 2005 to grow and sell fresh produce, collaborate with chefs and the food community, and save rare seeds. She harvests 3,000 pounds of tomatoes alone (not to mention everything else) by herself while maintaining a seed bank with over 2,000 different varieties of tomatoes. Steph works to preserve the history and story of heirloom plants and is a steward for orphaned varieties and is one of the founding members of the Long Island Regional Seed Consortium and the Long Island Cheese Pumpkin Project. Host Jenna Liut talks with Steph about the importance of biodiversity in our food system, the inferiority of Sungold tomatoes, and why she wants the #ladyfarmer hashtag to die.
