First Generation Farmers
After living and working in Latin America for ten years as diplomats, we were unexpectedly medically evacuated home in 2014 to help one of our children. With the farm previously purchased in anticipation of our future retirement we came home for recuperation. The farming adventure began with heritage breeds of American Milking Devon and Red Devon cows and Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs.
Our overseas eating experiences were very different from those in the US with some resultant healthy life changing habits occurring. Frozen foods were almost nonexistent and canned food options were not much better. The ‘norm’ being fresh vegetables and meats. The impact of these limited food options is obvious – locals do not suffer from the same obesity rates as Americans. The American obesity epidemic has not hit Latin America.
Making a difference in America with our farm.
We chose heritage breed livestock, animals never selected for production in Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). Our heritage breed animals thrive in their natural environment, producing flavorful and nutrient dense meats – food the way Mother Nature intended.
We are excited to be your farmer, growing and sharing healthy choices for you.

When I'm busy, the crockpot is a life saver. It seems that the weeks prior to Christmas are the busiest of the year. There's always somewhere to be, something to buy, people to see and extra activities for the kids. I'm so happy to be in the midst of the week between...read more
Marketing our grassfed beef and free-range pork is a labor of love. I've been hard at work since mid-October building a new website. This was a monumental task, which challenged my tech skills, my patience and my sanity. I'm pretty sure I also tested the sanity,...read more
It's totally been one of those days... Nothing has gone right! I need to give you some background before I dig into today's fiascos. Oh, and I should add that I've been sick as a dog since Monday! Remember those two goats I picked up? Yes, well, Monday, one got...read more
