Medford farmer honored

Medford resident David Mostue has been named to a statewide list celebrating 35 “innovators” younger than 35.

Mostue runs Medford's Dunbar Farms and was included on the list compiled by the land use group 1000 Friends of Oregon.

1000 Friends cited Mostue's community-supported agriculture project at the farm and noted: “Mostue has set aside a plot that offers a bulk of its harvest to the Farm-to-Kitchen Youth Project, an effort that brings elementary- and-middle school students to the farm to teach them on the connection between the field and the dinner table.”

Mostue and others on the list will be honored at a March 20 event.
