Carie Deneau oral history interview, 2019 April 10
At the time of the interview Carie Deneau had worked at Tega Hills Farm in York County, South Carolina, for a little over five years. Her primary duties included product weighing, seeding, and seedling transfers to the farm's greenhouses. Prior to working for Tega Hills Farm, she worked in the healthcare field and specifically in hospice care for twenty years, eventually leaving due to burnout and to pursue farmwork. Ms. Deneau describes how she worked at a large scale produce farm in Delaware in her early twenties, which provided training to ease her into farming at Tega Hills Farm. Topics in this interview include transitions from working in healthcare to farming, musings on scientific farming and the future of farming, and production of healthy food for introduction back into the American diet.
