This blog post is really personal and I want to be completely honest and share briefly our journey how this really has been a blessing! Our life has not been perfectly planned like we imagined it would, but God has blessed us along the journey and helped us rely on trusting in Him. 

Hannah and I got married in January 2014. We were both two young married adults freshly graduated from college. We had big dreams. We both loved God, family, learning, and the idea of homesteading on a farm. We dreamed together before marriage, and would talk how we imagined it would be. Joe would manage the farm and Hannah would also help on the farm, but mainly would be a home maker. She would manage our home, meals, garden and care for our future children. We wanted lots of kids to help us on the farm. 

Then marriage happened. We found out it doesn't go as planned. The business of life took over, both us working full-time to try and pay the bills. Feeling like we weren't getting ahead and working dead end jobs. Then struggles of infertility, depression issues, marriage problems, and more. But through it all we both had a commitment that we would not give up on our marriage and our future dreams. Thankfully with much support and help from friends, family and God, we have been able to break through some of our struggles over time. We by no means have it figured out, but today as I write this, I do feel a ton of gratitude for where we are today and all the blessings! Hannah has been great at reminding me that "our life is a journey, we can reach our goals, but it won't be the path we have planned". 

We both still work off farm jobs to make ends meet, our marriage still isn't perfect, we still have days of doubt. However, I feel that we are getting closer to our dreams. Now with our first baby on the way, we are feel like we are on cloud nine, which we haven't felt since we first got married. We are super excited! 

Thank you for being apart of our farm and family. You, as our customer, are apart of the dream. We hope that we not only can help you eat healthier, but can be an encouragement to help you reach your personal life purpose!

Please share your comments below! Also we would love to hear your BOY name suggestions??

He Arose

Happy Easter Friend! Today, we are taking it easy on the farm. I just finished morning chores and now have a short moment to write you this email before we bustle off to church. Thankfully we worked pretty hard yesterday to get all the chores done so today we can take some extra family time to celebrate this Easter Sunday.Of course there will be the Easter egg hunt this afternoon as we do everyday ;)However, we look forward to celebrating the magnificent miracle that happened 2,000 years ago. Our Lord, Jesus Christ arose from the death of his crucifixion with our family today. As many of you know we are a faith based family farm. This means we hold very closely our faith in everything we do. That said, I wouldn't be acting out of faith, if I didn't share His story as it reflects who we are and stand for. If you are willing, please watch this really cool poem that I found encouraging!It sent chills up my back! It's such a beautiful poem sharing what Christ accomplished with his death, burial, and then resurrection.  We are so thankful for his love and grace to save us. Choosing him as our savior vs our good deeds can uplift anyone from the bondage we face.  I hope you enjoyed the poem as well.  God bless you on this Easter Sunday.  The Wanda Family

How We Scale The Regenerative Farming Model

As a farmer who's been practicing regenerative agriculture for several years now, I firmly believe that it's not only scalable but also essential for the future of sustainable food production. When I look at my own journey and the transformations I've witnessed on my farm, I see immense potential for regenerative practices to be adopted on a larger scale.

Industrial Ag's Paradigm: Cheap Food, Unsustainable System

As a farmer who has witnessed firsthand the evolution of agricultural practices, I am compelled to shed light on the detrimental effects of the industrial agriculture model. While this system has promised increased efficiency and productivity, the hidden costs it imposes on our environment, society, and health cannot be ignored.
