Our family had a farm dream...
Originally from Queens, New York, we moved Upstate to breathe, live life and grow our own food.
We didn't always believe food was medicine. There was a time when we shopped for the best deals, and not the best food. We started our little family and began to consciously shop for foods to nourish our children. It was then that we looked at the ingredients and the how the meat we ate was raised. With shock and dismay, we learned that our meats were raised through industrial farming methods, our veggies were genetically modified, and our snacks were full of high fructose corn syrup. It was then we decided to do better and we began our mission to raise our own food that was free of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics.
We moved around and farmed on rental properties for a good while, educating ourselves on the basics of farming and learned through trial and error.
Then we were blessed with an amazing opportunity to move to Saudi Arabia. My husband and I taught English there for ten years. We are truly humbled by the life experiences we gained there and that we became part of the positive historical shift in education in the Middle East.
We always knew that we would come back to farming. When we finally saved up enough money, the perfect property came along at the right time. Far from the mansion the kids were expecting, the abandoned 40 acre property needed tons of work and lots of love!
And here we are, ready to share our dream of healthy and sustainable living with you, our neighbors and friends!
