We wanted to be a change agent, for the land, for the animals and for people who were tired of not knowing where their food came from. So we dove in, head first, and started our farming journey.
Now, 10 years later, we know it was the right decision for us and our community.
We also know that farming isn’t something that everyone can do. So we’re thrilled to be here as your farmer, while you’re there as our doctor, lawyer, teacher, fireman or whatever profession you’re drawn to.
