The Family

Ed & Joyce – bought the farm when they married 50 years ago and raised their 4 children (Maria, Heather, Eric, and Paul) while teaching them the value of working with family.  Now Joyce enjoys working in the back teaching her grandchildren how to grow.  Ed can usually be found taking care of the watering (which seems to be a never ending job) or driving around the country side running errands and making deliveries (or “bumming” as the grandkids say).

Eric & Ann – continuing the tradition by raising their 5 children in the family business (along with several horses, chickens, turkeys, and heritage cattle and pigs).  Eric is usually found covering 5 things at the same time, but with an easy smile, contagious laugh and unbelievable memory.  Right now Ann is usually found keeping track of their 5 kids, while helping around the greenhouse, farm, and planting a huge vegetable garden.

Maria – returned to the family business for almost 11 years after working for an international flower seed breeder/producer for 10 years in marketing.  She is now on to her next adventure.

You’ll probably also periodically see Ed & Joyce’s youngest son, Paul, running a cash register on a busy weekend, as well as tinkering with all the electrical or mechanical needs (it’s a good thing he’s an electrical engineer).  Their other daughter, Heather, and her family can also be found helping out when they’re visiting the farm.
