A Dream Becomes Reality!

November 17, 2017

On April 25th of  2017 I was able to work my first rented dirt and plant the first seed's that will become Covey Rise Farm's new home!

Planting.jpgFor those of you that have known me a long time, I have dreamed of being a farmer for most of my life. Call it an addiction, call it a yearning of my soul to feel dirt and raise animals, or call it my calling, regardless it has always been my dream. 3 years ago I was able to buy a small farm here in Radnor Ohio and start "playing" farmer by raising some livestock and dipping my toe into pastured poultry. Well after a years worth of negotiations and working with the Farm Service Agency and my local bank the dream is becoming a reality. On the first week of December I can finally announce that I will be closing on 70 acres that will become the new home farm. The next 18 months will now be spent turning this blank canvas into a vibrant farm raising some of the best pastured meats in Central Ohio. I would like to thank my parents and grandfather for their support, even though it took some convincing that someone 4 generations removed from a family farm can actually become a modern farmer. Finally I would like to thank my customers who have become my "farm family". Without your support both vocally and through your buying power this dream would never have become reality. The next 18 months won't be easy, but I know that I have all ya'lls support so thank you and I can't wait to welcome each and every one of you out to the new farm!New-Ewe's.jpg
