Midnight Sun Farm owner Nick Choate-Batchelder returns to the barn yard for more feed while feeding his flock of 600 chickens in Harvard. The chickens produce 45 dozen eggs a day. Choate-Batchelder and wife Becky Stark run the family-run Community Supported Agriculture program and market farm. Midnight Sun Farm worked out a lease agreement with Tom Perry, an investor who bought the farm at their request, so they could grow organic vegetables and free-range livestock there.
