Amanda Merrow and Katie Baldwin are the founders of Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett, New York. The pair have been farming together on the east end of Long Island since 2008 when they met during a season-long farming apprenticeship and decided to follow their passion for good food and hard work by founding Amber Waves. Now in its seventh season, Amber Waves specializes in a 150 member CSA, farmers markets, and sales of specialty vegetables to some of the Hamptons’ most popular restaurants. The farm is open to the public every day and regularly welcomes families, school groups, and passers by to enjoy all the fields have to offer. Amanda and Katie are part of the national movement of young people committed to revitalizing America’s food system by helping people become empowered and excited to make thoughtful food choices through a deeper connection to their food and the people who grow it. The ladies have been featured on the Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa, ABC’s The Chew, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and many local publications for their work at Amber Waves Farm. They frequently speak at regional workshops and conferences geared towards organic growers and consumers.
