Know Your Farmer
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 farming with anyone willing to listen.
Vanessa has always enjoyed gardening and is excited to share this educational experience with her daughters. She loves knowing where her food comes from and is excited to be able to provide the community with local, nutritionally dense foods. In her spare time, Vanessa enjoys crafting, spending time with her family, and growing flowers.
