Ricky is a devoted husband, loving father and a veteran of the US Army Special Forces (Green Beret). He transitioned careers to become a Firefighter Paramedic in the St. Louis metro area before the Pandemic changed a few things. He is now a Rookie Farmer learning the ways of our ancestors and honing skills in husbandry, horticulture, and all that the farm life requires.

Why did we start farming? Well, like many, we began re-examining our lives during the early days of the Pandemic. The food shortages prompted us to buy chicks to raise for eggs and then our 6 year old daughter, Agnes, asked to sell our surplus eggs from our St. Louis home. We started with 12 hens in our suburban backyard and just kept on going. Later, when Ricky was faced with a potential vaccine mandate from the US Army and the Fire Service he began looking for a career change to provide for his family without being subject to demands that were against his conscience. 

Our family is passionate, hard-working, and strives to lead a life worthy of this tremendous calling as parents, farmers, and Christians.

We love meeting our customers and consider every patron a part of our Big Family Farm!
