The Full Story
Miles and Amanda first moved to the Methow in 2016 for an agricultural summer internship. By the end of the season, we had purchased a 1949 Ford 8N tractor ("Truman"), and decided we weren't ready to leave. Over the last 7 seasons, the farm has evolved, grown, and, sometimes, pared down; however, the mission has remained the same: incorporate age-old practices to steward land that will sustain future generations.
Miles manages the pasture, birds, mechanics, and infrastructure, while Amanda heads the florals, marketing, and business side of things. Both of us work full-time off the farm as a school farm manager and mental health therapist, respectively. We started the farm with a social foundation in mind, and still hope to someday incorporate farming practices into a therapeutic setting.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our community. Friends have put in hundreds of hours on this farm, and, we wouldn't be able to sustain the business without the faith other local businesses have placed in us.
