Indy Urban Acres Farmer, Martin Chikerema has been with us for about a couple of years, and has been essential to our farm family.

We know Martin pretty well and we thought you should get to know him too. Have fun “meeting” Martin in this short and sweet Q & A!

Q: What motivates you to farm?

Growing food for our community. Planting, watering, harvesting and packaging all have to be done and the reward is amazing.




Q: What life lessons can be taken from farming?

It’s a humbling experience.



Q: What is your favorite fruit/veggie from the farm?

It’s got to be tomatoes you can cook them with anything.



Q: What’s the most interesting thing you’ve seen out at the farm?

The UFO haha.

*What?! You can’t say “The UFO” and leave it at that! Anyway, next question.*



Q: When you’re done farming for the day. What will you be doing?

At home enjoying a beer while working on my garden.



Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A Lawyer.


That’s Martin! You may want to ask him more details about that UFO next time you see him in person.
