Charlie Johnson

Charlie Johnson, 2013 MOSES Organic Farmer of the Year. Johnson Farms has 2,800 owned and rented acres that Charlie manages with his brother, Allan, and cousin, Aaron. The Johnsons’ younger brother, Kevin, also helps on the farm, along with Charlie’s children, and the brothers’ wives. The brothers grew up on the farm, under the tutelage of their late father, Bernard, who taught them to respect the land through chemical-free management. Certified organic by International Certification Services (FVO/ICS) since 1982, the farm has been under organic management since the mid 1970s, long before the development of organic markets and infrastructures.
