Meet Our Farmers
Welcome to the Family
Maintenance/Heavy Lifter/#1 Dude
Mr. Eric (that's what the neighborhood kids call him) is not afraid of hard work and proves it daily. We could not have asked for a better compost hauler, raised bed assembler or behind-the-scenes encourager. Any day that he can use his power tools--the louder the better--he considers to be a good day. He can also assemble a mean bouquet in a pinch! He is a most valuable part of our team!
Miss Dawn (again, what the neighborhood kids call her) is our main grower. A country girl married to a dyed-in-the-wool suburbanite, she decided to stop trying to move back to the country and just "farm where you are." She loves to talk about her garden to anyone and everyone, and really gets a charge out of sitting amongst the plants at the end of the day, watching the butterflies and bees get their last sips of nectar in before sunset. Her favorite flower? Whatever is blooming right now!
Miss Lovely Assistant
Miss Lovely Assistant (yes, she needs her privacy!) has been a part of our farm from the start. She is an invaluable aide in creating our social posts, helps with chores around the place and chases squirrels and other critters off our blooms with great regularity. One of her greatest kicks is to help select the bulbs in the annual spring bulbs order. Her mom says that her sense of flower fashion is the best on the property. The strawflowers and tulips are tied for her favorite flower. She loves to raise Monarch caterpillars and other caterpillars into butterflies!
The (Guinea) Pig Who Lived
As the only animal allowed on the property (allergies, allergies!), Harry Potter rules supreme. He is an invaluable part of the farm, well-noted for devouring weeds, turning vegetable bits into garden fertilizer, and provides ample opportunity to the neighborhood kids for snuggles. His favorite flower is the rose, which he declares to be "quite tasty!" You can often find him in the backyard, lounging about in his custom-fabricated (by Mr. Eric!) guinea pig tractor.
