Our Story

Where does our story begin?

Well that is an interesting question with not a simple answer. There are several “events” in our lives that have lead us to where we are now and where we would like to go. One part of our story began one weekend when Ryan was in Mississippi singing with the Bibletones. He detailed severe discomfort in his right side one night in a phone call that was not getting any better. When he returned home we contacted our doctor and scheduled an appointment. Through a series of tests and examinations, we were referred to a surgeon who recommended the removal of Ryan’s gallbladder. After prayer and many questions, we decided to invest in our health and thus began healthy living in 2009 leading us to begin running 5Ks, half marathons, half IronMan and Ryan completing his first full Ironman in 2014.

At the end of this era, we decided as a family for Ryan to leave his job and begin a new career of homestead farming our own vegetables, pork and chicken and homeschool our 2 youngest boys in 2015. From there, God has planted dreams and provided opportunities to share our love for homegrown, farm raised foods with others.
