Personal experience and production goals summary:

I have been gardening since I was young. In college I realized that I wanted to one day own my own farm! My partner and I have made it our goal to learn as much as we can about plants and organic farming before starting our journey together as future farm owners. I worked for a season as a farm intern and absolutely loved it! I went for a change of pace and was a seasonal employee at a plant nursery where I gained a lot of landscaping experience. We both are currently working as farm interns and are learning a lot and cultivating ideas for our future farm!
