Know Your Farmer
Owner & Farm Manager
Andy has wanted to be a farmer since he can remember and when Red Fern Farm was officially established during the summer of 2019 his childhood dreams came true. Andy has worked in several professions including law enforcement, education, and the outdoor recreation field. He is fascinated by nature and how everything is linked together. He enjoys good food and the community it is surrounded by, early morning sunrises with coffee, spending time outdoors with his family, and sharing his passion for small-scale market farming with anyone willing to listen.
