Pang, Ying & Lor Yang of Yang Farms

Lauren Rae Holtermann

CYCFM: Where Are you from?

My parents are originally from Laos.

CYCFM: When and why did you begin farming?

PY: Our farm is located in Toone, TN.  My parents have been farming since they were children in Laos.  They lived in a small collection of poor villages and farming was every villager's job. The villages were too poor to have shops so everyone farmed for a living whether it was raising crops, cattle, or building straw/wood homes.

CYCFM: What is your favorite crop to grow?

YP: Our favorite crop to grow is Asian greens & herbs (lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, sawtooth herb, etc).

CYCFM: What is your favorite dish to eat?

YP: One of our favorite dishes to eat is freshly baked fish stuffed with herbs partnered with homegrown sticky or jasmine rice and a choice of boiled greens.

CYCFM: How do you relax?

PY: Ying and Lor (Pang's mother and father)watch Thai soap operas 1-2x a week as a way to relax. But if it rains, they go fishing.

CYCFM: What is your favorite part about the Cooper Young Community Farmers Market?

My favorite part about the market is the atmosphere and the authenticity of vendors. You can really tell if someone grew or made something if you have the eye for it.
