In 2004, Dave and Denise Dyrek bought 30 acres in Michigan as a weekend getaway from their Humboldt Park home. Four years later, Leaning Shed Farm was born. The couple, who named their farm for an actual building on the property, specialize in heirloom variety vegetables and fruits that include peas, tomatoes, garlic, cucumbers, peppers, and strawberries. Dave is constantly searching for different varieties to grow and bring to market. What are two Chicagoans doing scratching at the dirt? Some say the farm is a "midlife crisis,” others refer to it as "living the dream.”
