I have been a backyard gardener for as long as I can remember – my grandparents and my parents all had a green thumb. At our suburban home in Colorado I turned my backyard into 300 square feet of vegetable beds and raspberries and kept backyard chickens and beehives. Though this was fun, I knew I wanted more space to expand.
In February of 2016 my younger brother died after a tough battle with melanoma that was discovered less than a year prior. Seven years before that I lost my older brother who was paraplegic and died after contracting MRSA. Through this immense loss I had the realization that life is fragile and tomorrow is guaranteed to no one. I knew that I had to use that sadness and loss to propel forward in a positive way.
In the fall of 2018 we took the plunge towards realizing my lifetime dream of owning a farm and bought 80 acres of beautiful land north of Spokane, Washington with the idea of making my hobby into a full-time endeavor. Follow our progress as we shape our new property into a beautiful, thriving farm!
