Kristyn runs Namu Farm in Central California, where she predominantly grows crops of the Asian diaspora. The farm’s focus is to adapt both East Asian subsistence farming practices and seed cultivars to the challenges of production farming in dry, hot conditions. The farm uses ecological farming practices such as reduced tillage and closed loop fertility management. Kristyn’s Second Generation Seeds line, a project with Kitazawa Seed Company, is devoted to helping Asian communities discover and deepen their cultural heritage through seeds, and some of the seeds she produces are also offered in collaboration with TrueLove Seeds. Namu Farm also works to incorporate community-led participatory research in their seed preservation and improvement practices, through farm and culinary education programs.
