Marjie & Geoff
Marjie Findlay and Geoff Freeman purchased the farm in 2010 with the intention of keeping its land in agricultural production and restoring the farm as a place where people can connect with land, their food, and their farmer. Marjie has an interest in sustainable agriculture and farm-based education, and is committed to increasing access to healthy food. She can frequently be seen with the field crew or leading a hunt for tomato horn worms. Geoff is a retired architect of college and university libraries, and is now having an absolute blast designing structures like mobile chicken coops, our timber-frame farm stand, and our many ongoing historic barn improvements.
