How it all began…

Growing up in Jamaica, my siblings, cousins and I enjoyed spending summers on the farm with our grandparents Keziah and Claudius Codner. As children, the farm provided us with the tranquility that city life failed to offer. Being on the farm was a delight; we rose before the sun to tend to the animals and took pride in working alongside our grandparents in the fields sowing seeds and reaping crops.

Granny and Papa – as they were affectionately called, were hard-working Jamaicans who lived a very simple, happy, and healthy life. While Papa left us sooner than we would have liked, Granny enjoyed 98 wonderful years; most of which were spent imparting invaluable lessons to her offspring. Her exuberance and passion for life were unmistakably contagious. During the last six months of her life as her health began to fail, her appetite decreased. The only way to convince her to eat was to “walk with her down memory lane” to the days on the farm. Granny still believed she was strong enough to take care of the animals so we gently reminded her that she needed to eat in order to keep up her strength. She often smiled before agreeing to eat, all the while negotiating what sized portion she would ingest.

Our grandparents were excellent land stewards; their longevity is in part credited to the quality of foods they produced and consumed. While they are no longer with us physically, they continue to live on in our hearts.

How it all began…

Growing up in Jamaica for my siblings and cousins meant spending time on the farm with our grandparents Keziah and Claudius Codner during the summer. As children, the farm provided us with the tranquility that city living failed to offer. Being on the farm was a delight; we rose before the sun to tend to the animals and took pride in working along side our grandparents in the fields sowing seeds and reaping crops.

Granny and Papa – as they were affectionately called, were hard-working Jamaicans who lived a very simple, happy, and healthy life. While papa left us a little sooner than we would have liked, Granny lived to the age of “98”. She was exuberant; she had a passion for life. As her health began to fail during the last six months of her life in 2011, her appetite began to decrease. The only way to convince her to eat was to “walk with her down memory lane” to the days working in the fields. Granny still believed she was strong enough to take care of the pigs and we would remind her that she needed her strength to do so. She would smile and then agree to eat, all the while negotiating what portion she would ingest.

Our grandparents were excellent stewards of the land; their longevity is partly credited to the quality of foods they produced and consumed. While they are no longer with us in their physical form, they continue to live in our hearts.

Kezmar Organic Farm was founded in 2012 on the principles that Granny and Papa instilled in us at an early age. They made sure we understood the importance of good land stewardship. At Kezmar Farm, we are committed to carrying on their legacy by producing healthy foods to feed our generation and impart the knowledge to others so they can do the same for generations to come.
