Shelby Watson-Hampton is the winner of the 2016 Thrive #RootedinAg Contest hosted by Syngenta. This Maryland native wouldn’t have received the prize without her family, including her Aunt Susan. The two came together after a family tragedy to keep the farm going. Now they’re running a successful vineyard, winery and wedding business.
“Everybody has a strong suit. We’re like puzzle pieces and fit very well together. Working with family can be difficult, but for the most part, we’re really lucky,” said Shelby.
FarmHer Host Marji Guyler-Alaniz gets a warm welcome on a cold Maryland morning from Shelby, Susan and their husbands. Join the crew as they feed the animals, tour wedding facilities and partake in a down-home wine experience. Enjoy the company of this four-person team as you get a taste for growing grapes in the Northeast.
