Meet the Modern Farmer: Peter Traverse

Data tracking, predicting the weather, and planting sensors: Peter Traverse of Crozet, VA is not your mother’s farmer.

Peter Traverse is not your mother’s farmer – the humble Crozet man, half farmer and half scientist, uses sensors, data analysis, and weather prediction to care for the beautiful 550-acre Innisfree Village property.

By implementing tracking systems across his land, Peter aims to “let the land” teach him through collection and analysis of information. The result is a modern, sustainable, and majestic farm with landscapes that will blow your mind.
