Amy married Martha’s Vineyard native Chris Fischer in 2018. Chris, 42, is a chef and farmer— rather, he runs his family’s historic Beetlebung Farm in Chilmark, Massachusetts.
“I spent a lot of time on the farm growing up because my mother was working here, but took over running operations from my aunt, Marie, when she retired in 2010 after 35 years,” he told Esquire in 2013.
Chris is the author of award-winning cookbook Beetlebung Farm Cookbook: A Year of Cooking on Martha’s Vineyard, which includes recipes from his family farm.
The pair are parents to son Gene, whom they welcomed on May 5, 2019. In 2020, they did a Hulu cooking show together called Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, in which Amy helped her chef husband prepare meals as they socially distanced together on his family’s farm.
