May 28, 2013. The Cash Mob first visited Earthwood Farm, a recently opened organic 2-acre hobby farm in Rutherwood. The farm has numerous unique and creative outbuildings and barns crafted by the owners themselves, often with recycled materials. Mobbers bought fresh eggs, herb plants, carrots, radishes, a variety of fresh lettuces, and handmade hypertuffa pots. The children were more interested in the tractors, and the farm’s chickens, pygmy goats, and Ophelia the donkey. Photo by Lonnie Webster
