Just 9 days remain before the start of America’s annual beardfest to raise cancer awareness, No-Shave November. As men around the country prepare to spend a month without shaving and enjoy the shaggy look, we celebrate facial follicles and countdown our favorite East End beardsman, from history and today. Let’s hope these hairy heroes help get you in the mood.
Farmer. Author. Poet. Beardsman. That’s Scott Chaskey.
Chaskey is the director of Peconic Land Trust’s Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, an organic Community Supported Agriculture farm.
In 2014, Chaskey published Seedtime: On the History, Husbandry, Politics and Promise of Seeds. He is also the author of This Common Ground: Seasons on an Organic Farm.
When he is not farming and writing—and even while he is—Chaskey is growing one of the most impressive beards on the East End.
