Our Farming Journey

We are a military family turned farmers.  We moved to Gaylord in 2018 from Seoul Korea where we were stationed while Andy was on the United State Forces Korea staff as an Air Force Major.  Andy was given the opportunity to switch from Active Duty to the Air National Guard and run the Air Force bombing range at Camp Grayling.

Our journey towards regenerative farming started with the whole foods movement.  We attended farmers markets in Boise ID and Seoul Korea as customers and enjoyed the experience.  When we got the opportunity to move to Gaylord we knew we wanted land to homestead on.

After homesteading for two years, we decided to start our commercial farm so we could share the awesome meat and eggs we had been enjoying for ourselves.  So in 2021 after the pandemic showed how fragile the industrial ag system was we took the plunge and registered our farm business and started selling at the Gaylord Farmers Market.
