Stefanie's story

I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the middle of the city. Growing up I never thought that I would move to NY, fall in love, get married and start a farm.

At 24 years old my husband had a heart problem, and found that he had high cholesterol. The doctors wanted to put him on medication for the rest of his life. We did a lot of research and found that eating pasture raised meats, poultry and eggs could really make a difference to your health, and happiness. We looked around and really couldn't find many completely pasture raised meats, so we did what any crazy person would do. We ordered 200 chickens, and bought a couple of pigs. Five years later our family and farm have grown significantly. We have 3 children, 2 healthy boys 3 months and 3 1/2 years old who are with us, and a little girl waiting for us in Heaven.

In the near future I hope to be able to stay at home with my boys and farm full time with my family.
