  • Farming is a family affair for the Frys, who have been fixtures at growers markets for decades and venerable suppliers of vegetable starters for home gardeners.
    "We have five girls," Suzanne Fry said, adding that with farming, "I could stay home with my kids and raise them in a good and healthy way."
    She and her husband, Steven, started planting veggies on a small plot in Talent 22 years ago after they settled down on Rogue Valley soil.
    "We've grown from a half-acre of farmland to about 70 acres through local support," Suzi Fry said.
    Although their home base remains in Talent, the Frys also farm on land in Phoenix and Medford. As they say, it's "the dirt that grows your food."
