Live the life you’ve imagined…
From the local news:
Originally from the Midwest, but raised in Phoenix by parents who both gardened, I’ve always dreamed of having a small farm. In my mid 40’s with a weekend home in Leelanau county, I realized that if I wanted to start a farm I couldn’t wait until retirement. In 2013 I left my automotive job, sold my house in Rochester, and moved north to start my farm and live there full time. My first season was in 2014, but the farm didn’t pay and I have had to spend fall, winter and spring in the Detroit area to earn money to farm in the summer for a few years. Finally, in 2019 I left Detroit and came back to make a go of it full time, and so far so good. It’s been a roller coaster ride since 2014, in the very best way possible!
