The New Farmers

 

continued

"Great things came out of the first years," says McCabe, "but it was a two-year program, and the grant ran out." With the loss of its part-time manager, Tilian is down to just one farm-in-incubation, Bill Bass's Honest Eats.

Selma Cafe was a victim of its success. Neighbors' complaints brought the attention of the city zoning department and the county health department, and it closed in April. "It came down to a couple of neighbors," McCabe says. "We probably could have resolved the city and the county's concerns, but we weren't going to shove it down our neighbors' throats."

Selma nevertheless proved too good an idea to die, so Lisa Gottlieb--she and McCabe have separated--reopened it in June serving brunch once a month on Saturdays in the common house at Sunward Cohousing in Scio Township. She says folks at Sunward have been "very welcoming and enthusiastic," and the cafe's been invited to stay for at least another six months.
