  1. What's your favorite product you grow and why? Winter squash.  Many people haven't tried the sweeter, smooth textured squashes like Delicata and Honeynut...after trying, many are convinced!
  2. What is your favorite part of the Dane County Farmers' Market? Socializing with fellow farmers and regular customers. (Editor's note:  We are detecting a pattern here...almost ALL of our members love seeing YOU, the customer, each week!)
  3. If you weren't a farmer, what would your occupation be and why? I have many times joked that had I continued on to grad school, I'd be working for Monsanto or Syngenta pulling in a 6-figure salary and would spend my weekends at my luxurious lake house up North!
  4. What's your favorite word? Parthenocarpic (Editor's Note:  We had to look that one up too!  You can find out more here.)
  5. What's your current indulgence? Blackberry brandy (Editor's Note: Rob answered this during the late winter, so you may need to inquire about any new indulgences!)
  6. What's one thing patrons wouldn't know about you? That I grew up in the City of Milwaukee, the product of a parochial education all the way through high school. Though I always loved the country - open spaces and less congestion!
