Dennis Busa—Busa Farms proprietor
Dennis carries on a tradition of Busa-family farming that has continued in Lexington since 1920. A farmer in the truest sense of the word, Dennis raises a variety of homegrown gourmet vegetables and plants that are sold at the East Lexington family farm stand. This photo calls back to memories of when Lexington was mostly farmland. I photographed Dennis at sunrise in a stand of corn that he farms near Stone Meadow Golf Course. I can’t remember if I told Dennis that I grew up in farming country in Kansas, but if I didn’t, I’ll bet he figured it out. We both wear the dirt under our fingernails the same way.
