We started in 1996 with a thirty acre farm, a thousand trees, and two beehives. We were one of the first farms in Missouri to practice Agronomic Forestry, growing hay and row crops between rows of trees. 1998 brought Angus cattle and our first pecan grove planting. In 2007 we shifted to the hardier Belted Galloway cattle breed, and started growing Pumpkins and Squash. In 2011 we offered stocked bee hives for sale or rent, answering a need for pollination in urban gardening. Then in 2013 we started planting apple and peach trees. We have planted, pruned, picked, driven wells, rebuilt barns, spread manure, pulled calves and been bee-stung many a careless time.
