Perseverance Farm is run by Dr. Mary Ann Favjan, aka the Tree doctor. Their farm is mainly wooded, but that doesn’t stop Mary Ann from using the cleared area to grow more niche products for the market, while also using the trees to her advantage. When not studying silviculture as a research forester or volunteering with the local MARS (mountaineer area robotics team) group, you might find her making homemade tortillas for the market. She also brings various herbs, hickory nuts, grilling wood, baked goods, some veggies, and jams. Since joining the farmers market a few years ago her market products have developed and filled a wonderful small niche gap.
