2017 Polk County Farm Family of the Year – Farm Bureau
We are extremely grateful for this honor and that God has blessed us with the opportunity to farm for a living!
Holly Springs Homestead is headquarters for our family business but more importantly it deeply represents our dream life. Holly Springs Homestead was developed out of our love of family and our strong desire to raise our boys to become independent, capable, young men with strong work ethics and moral backbones just like me and my husband were both raised.
Holly Springs Homestead is a place where tradition, an entrepreneurial spirit, a love for our roots, and elbow grease is all the rage!
Some companies reorganize…our family re-prioritized. Recognizing that our dreams were only achievable if we stepped out on faith, we left over 35 collective years of corporate tenure behind us to become in charge of our own destiny.
Both Luke and I were fortunate to grow up with parents and grandparents who believed in hard work and self-sustainability…..it is our goal to pass along the old traditions and retain the wonderful and simple ways of life back in the olden days.
Using formal education degrees in agriculture and business administration, it is our goal to integrate modern technologies with proven methodologies from the past. In doing so, we are committed to keeping life simple, preserving what we have been blessed with, and passing along the knowledge and life skills that we have been taught along the way.
