\"I borrowed a tractor from a farmer and that\'s how I started.\" So in 1978, the start of what is now the Harvest Farm of Whately began with owner David Wojcieshowski. He explains, \"I just had a strong desire to be in the farming business. My father didn\'t want me to farm, in fact he strongly objected. He wanted me to be a doctor just like my four brothers.\" Despite his father\'s resistance, David started farming first through the Amherst Food Co-op, raising around three acres of vegetables. In \'78 he jumped into the profession full-time and even took agriculture classes at the University of Massachusetts, in his late 20s, to learn more about the tasks that lay ahead of him.
