Who we are
We are two suburban kids turned country in search of a simpler life. Always outdoorsy, we love to hike, fish, and Matt loves to hunt. We both grew up in Connecticut in a typical suburban setting. Matt served in the United States Marine Corps, while I became a Registered Nurse. In early 2015 I convinced Matt to get a flock of chickens so we could have fresh eggs. Little did we know what those chickens would spark inside of us. From that first flock of 7 hens (and one rooster) we started diving into the homesteading scene, raising our own meat chickens and turkeys. We experimented with tapping the few maple trees we had on our property for syrup. I bought a beehive. We decided we needed to move to a bigger property and expand on this lifestyle. In December of 2016 we found a house in Vermont on a farm. Taking a leap of faith we left our home state of 31 years, and we've never looked back. Thinking we would just grow our homestead, we never dreamed we'd be taking over the farm that surrounds our property. Life always seems to have a way of surprising us! Matt now farms full time and I am a part time farm hand, part time labor and delivery nurse.
What we believe
We believe in the humane and responsible treatment of animals, and being good stewards of the land. We believe that if you are going to eat meat you should do so responsibly. We believe in the quality of the food we raise and that practicing sustainable agriculture will help heal the environment. We believe in small businesses and small farmers. We believe that no farms means no food.
