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.

Take a minute to look through our website and see for yourself what we are all about.

Collaboration With Local Farms

Collaboration With Local Farms

Farming is hard, but it's even harder to treat a farm as a business, and this is why I believe that farmers need to collaborate with each other rather than competing. Actually, the farming is the best part. I can spend all day outside, and when I come in I feel...
