We, Stephen and Krista are in a long term happy, healthy relationship. We are living our dream in providing food for our community in a sustainable way. We focus on preserving and caring for the land that we are on by growing using organic methods while incorporating permaculture methods. Together we have ventured through 3 years of full-time internships on 3 defferent organic farms.
2017 has been our first year owning and operating our own farm, New Roots Market Garden, on leased land in Madison County. We wish to grow even closer to the land and community by fostering land long term. www.newrootsmarketgarden.com
