Farmer and Agronomist: Heather Darby

By Patagonia   |   Feb 8, 2018 February 8, 2018

As the seventh generation of her family to farm the same land, working from sunup to sundown comes naturally to Heather Darby. The fourth profile in our Workwear series takes a look at the perpetual motion required to be both a research agronomist at the University of Vermont and the backbone of a 200-year-old, certified organic family farm.

WORKWEAR

Workwear is not a new thing for us, but we’re excited to be reimagining the work-specific side of Patagonia. To stand up to the toughest tasks, we’ve developed a utilitarian line of jackets, shirts, pants, shorts and overalls built with super-durable, long-wearing fabrics. Our newly developed All Seasons Hemp Canvas is a lightweight and remarkably durable material that requires no break-in and offers the resilience and freedom of motion needed to carry the day as the temperatures rise. Fair Trade Certified™ for sewing. See the collection at patagonia.com/workwear.
