Ever wonder who that family is behind this family farm? Well let me take a minute to introduce you to our zany large family.
Grandchildren Behind the Family Farm
Sammy is the youngest contributing member of this family farm. What exactly can a baby offer? See for yourself. His Gerber baby looks make for amazing marketing photos. Here he is a part of the bath and body marketing team.
Sammy displays versatility by promoting our market garden as well. Yes, he is literally right in the middle of our marketing efforts.
Sammy also offers supervision and general support as we work on the farm. He participates right along with the rest of the family.
Children Behind the Family Farm
Meet Charity, our photographer par excellence. She milks the goat herd. But that is not all. Charity is the Veggie Vendor coordinator. She writes weekly newsletters to our customers. Charity is actively involved in all aspects of both farm businesses. She leads educational farm tours. But she also assists with making soap, packing orders, and so much more. Oh, and that lip balm that everyone loves. She is the mastermind behind it. If you order online, chances are you will get a personal note from her filled with joy which is her trademark.
Farm work requires brute strength. Jordan, Josiah and Zach are the brawns necessary to accomplish the work. The twins offer organizational skills and financial backing. Zach provides everyday consistent work on all the farm projects. Rain or shine, snow or sunny, he works at a steady pace making sure the job gets done.
Children and Their Spouses
Danny devotes his welding and maintenance skills to our farming operation. His presence on the farm added a new dimension to what we accomplish.
Moriah is the overall manager of the goat and vegetable farm. She leads educational tours, speaks at events as a farm representative, and does a majority of the herd maintenance. Moriah is our resident hoof trimmer. Wherever there is a gap, she fills it.
Jon blesses our operation as an in house CPA. He specializes in creating custom software. It acts as an interface with our point of sale systems. This allows us to pull reports and analyze data which is crucial to determining the effectiveness of our operations.
While I focus on the bath and body company, I spend time working in the market garden and assisting in labor and delivery during kidding season. I have led the charge on developing niche vegetables and extending the growing season into the winter. Learn more about the mission behind Bright Hope Soaps here.
As a family, we are blessed beyond measure to live, laugh, and love in a rural setting. These pictures show a glimpse of the joy we have simply living the full life.
