Bramber farm family awarded for innovation
Norbert Kungl and Minga Mintz have been recognized by their peers for an innovative business move that has drastically increased the demand for organic produce farmed at Selwood Green. In this picture, the couple is holding lettuce and kale — a vegetable that is believed to be a high source of antioxidants.

Many of us who have been involved in the organic farming community in Nova Scotia for many years have held Norbert Kungl up as a mentor and example of how fine farm stewardship, sound organic management practices, and inspired, intelligent thinking can result in a vibrant, successful farm business. I applaud Norbert and Minga on this award. They are definitely most deserving!

Hi! This is Minga Mintz-Kungl from the above article (re: Outstanding Farm Family Award). Thanks for a great article about our family and the exciting event of receiving this award. I have one other comment to make, and that is that Norbert has not traded work in the fields for managing our shop at the Seaport Market. He has added that to his roster of chores and while the change in our marketing business has required that we hire someone to act as an assistant manager capacity at the farm on the days when Norbert must be at our shop , the farm could not function without Norbert's full on hands on involvement. Thanks again! Sincerely, Minga Mintz
