A bit about us:

Jen and David are a middle aged Christian couple who have been involved with ecological farming since the mid 90s.  Jen did years of seed selection work for the New Brunswick Dept of Ag and Spearville Mill that led to the re-introduction of Red Fife Wheat to commerce.  David is looking forward to his 26th year of market gardening.

Jen is responsible for the business side of the farm, including all marketing and finances, but is most interested in soil and crop improvement. David is in charge of production, but is happiest when the team has it on lockdown so he can experiment in the kitchen.
