Rick and I started our married life together working on conventional farms that were using industrial agricultural practices. At the time it was all we knew, having grown up in and around conventional agriculture ourselves. However, many little nudges along the way made us begin to question our agricultural paradigms and ultimately with the arrival of BSC (Mad Cow Disease) we found ourselves both broke and disillusioned about conventional farming practices that rely so heavily on chemical inputs. We chose to leave agriculture for a time and pursue some other adventures, all the while wishing we could be farming. (Once it's in your blood it's pretty hard to shake! lol)
We knew if we ever got back into agriculture it would have to look a lot different than where we had been so we started researching and educating ourselves about regenerative agriculture. When the opportunity arose to purchase a parcel of land in the beautiful Bulkley Valley we jumped in with both feet and, with our 4 kids (Grady, Sophie, Joe & Travis), have since embarked on a journey to build a regenerative, all-natural, pasture-based farm with an open farm gate policy for complete transparency for the public. We are passionate about bringing you and hundreds of other families throughout BC clean, nutrient-dense, ethically raised foods.
Our goal is to provide the peace of mind that comes from having a direct relationship with a farmer that you can know and trust so that you can Eat With Confidence!
