Meet the Farmers

Rickie’s interest in farming started with his grandmother in Bessemer City, NC, who taught him how to plow up a backyard bed and grow lima beans, radishes, and cucumbers.  Rickie is a trained ecologist in his full-time job with NatureServe by day, and a seed catalog junkie by night.

Christopher has a great passion for the outdoors and farm life, but luckily also has a great head for numbers.  While Rickie is off daydreaming about what plants they should grow next season, Christopher can be found reconciling accounts, harvesting flowers, weeding, packaging teas, and basically anything else that makes the farm run smoothly.
