Jason on Jon : From the first hand shake, it is evident that Jon is loyal, service oriented and driven. It is truly a pleasure to work with someone that is motivated by quality, instead of dollars. His commitment to his craft and humble nature will undoubtedly bring longevity in this lifestyle. His mark on this industry is strong and it is only the beginning. Youthful energy and timeless wisdom can save an aging and invaluable farming demographic. Jon maintains both of these characteristics with genuine pride. I'm certain he will become a pillar in the next generation of our agricultural community.
Jason on Tara :In the years that I've know Tara, she has brought a creative energy to this area. In a part of the world deeply rooted in tradition, her ideas have remained respectful and sustainable. This is a true testament to her genuine, forward thinking character. If we are going to continue to grow and overcome the obstacles of modern day agriculture, we need ideas that challenge our train of thought while paying homage to those that created this lifestyle. Tara embodies these philosophies.
Jason on our Hogs :Maya & Mum are going to spread joy and enlightenment. They are going on the menu tonight. Every ounce will be respected. You've done it again. It's without a doubt the most nuanced pork I've ever had.
With high hands, and devoted hearts we've been through it. We are certified wild mushroom foragers, and combined, have dabbled with bees, chickens, turkeys, sheep, lambs, goats, cows, hogs, vegetables, fruits, citrus. herbs, cover crops, cheese-making, quail + livestock protection from coyotes, possums, raccoons, snakes, birds of prey and environmentally born disease. From hurricane floods to bonfires under the stars, and a million funny stories in between, Jon and I love this life. Together.
