Matt Bycer

An Etrog Tree Grows In Arizona

Meet Matt Bycer, a lawyer and organic farmer seeking to establish a domestic supply of the Sukkot fruit.


Matt Bycer is like any other 33-year-old attorney who wakes up at the crack of dawn to exercise.

Except that rather than sweating to a P90X regimen, Bycer, in a T-shirt, shorts and cowboy hat, lugs 170 buckets of water across his backyard in Scottsdale, Ariz., to water his etrog farm.

New species of lawyer: Matt Bycer, a patent attorney by day, has established a small etrog farm at his Phoenix home.
