Charlie's story

Charlie comes from a long line of self-reliant farmers. Charlie's family grew most of their own food when he was growing up in Bellefontaine Ohio, they had a "truck farm” type operation and managed to keep themselves fed; all 12 kids and the parents. Charlie worked for several years as a toolmaker prior to joining the Army.

During his time in the Army, Charlie became an electronics specialist working with radio antennas and computers. He worked many years in the computer industry and as a systems administrator in 2011.

Charlie along with his wife Judy begin farming their 40-acre farm in Manchester Mi. In 2012. They started doing limited Farmers Markets and enjoy helping others find good quality vegetables; Judy Passed away in Aug 2018 and I have since relocated to Lake county Ohio and leased a HoopHouse and a few acres of good farmland. I am looking to focus on what does well and expand our hoop house operations so we can be profitable.

Due to health issues, we have to depend on part-time help to operate the farm and markets and plan to hire local people to continue our adventures to come.
