Beetlebung Farm is a family operation, located in Chilmark, MA, and owned by Regina Fischer, age 100. She and her husband Ozzie bought Beetlebung in 1961. Their four children, Doug, Marie, Susie and Albert all helped tend the family cows, and raise the vegetables and flowers that their father sold at his farm stand on Middle Road. Marie shared her father’s passion for growing. As Ozzie got older, Marie took over farm management, selling organic produce and freshly picked blooms alongside her father until his death in 2011.
Today, grandson Chris Fischer runs the farm, striving to uphold the standards set by his aunt and grandfather. A chef, Chris also makes time to cook what he grows, and write about food and family. Working in collaboration with Chris is Marie’s son, Josh Scott and his wife Lindsey. Along with their children, they raise sheep, cows and pigs, continuing the family's farming tradition for another generation.
