About WildHearts Farm

Wild at Heart was founded on passions: the passion we have to create the life of our dreams while raising our daughter together, make a difference, and to grow -- plants, animals, and ourselves. Wildness is in our souls, from our migration across the country (twice) to the moment we fell in love on a Harley. Becoming parents has settled us down some, but the beat of adventure still pulses in each of our hearts.

It is that same passion that has compelled us to face what we truly felt called to do with our lives and to pursue it with all our souls. For us, farming is more than just a way to make money . . . it is a lifestyle, a calling, and the only way we can see living our lives. Sustainable agriculture, or farming in harmony with nature rather than against it, is a process that we believe in wholeheartedly. Our farm will never use chemical inputs and will include a diversity of crops and livestock to promote good health for the soil and all living things.

Rare livestock breeds and heritage fruits and vegetables are another passion of ours. We are saddened to see so many breeds and wonderful cultivars becoming extinct in our "one size fits all" society, and we hope to create a haven for some of these farm treasures to survive for the next generation.

Above all, we want to create a community with our shareholders and farm customers. Without you, who would we be farming for? Our vision is a farm in which shareholders become friends and group cookouts and potlucks are a frequent occurence.

We hope you will join us!
