Name: Noah Link
Occupation: Owner & Manager, Food Field
Works in: The Field
Lives in: Boston-Edison, Detroit
What he’s done: Noah runs one of Detroit’s largest urban farms, Food Field, which he started in 2011 with partner Alex Bryan.
Noah works on four acres near the Boston-Edison neighborhood, growing fresh vegetables and fruit, eggs, honey, fish and other sustainable foods. Food Field produce can be found at Eastern Market and the Downtown Farmers Market, local restaurants like Supino Pizzeria, Mudgie’s Deli and the City Commons CSA coop (www.citycommonscsa.com). He plans to expand the farm further to incorporate more animals, more abandoned land and become more active in the community this year with a farm stand and weekly cooking events.
