Before they even became a couple, the two shared a common and burgeoning interest in where their food is grown. Matthew’s focus on farming began while getting his master’s in business administration, and he initially started a farm with a couple of friends. At the same time, in a different location and on a smaller scale, Jesie was pursuing her own ways to grow food. “I was planting a little raised bed garden, including a blueberry bush and honey bees,” she says.
A year after purchasing farm, Matthew and Jesie had their first child, Luke, and they hope he will thrive at Marble Creek. “We are driven to create a beautiful environment to raise our children in, while producing the best food we can for ourselves and our community,” says Matthew.
