Kelsey, Stacy and Elliot

We arrived in Kitsap County in 2001, after graduating from the University of Iowa in 1996. Born and raised in Iowa City, Iowa, we spent our childhood immersed in growing food alongside our families. This passion has been translated to every location we’ve lived in together for the last thirty years. We are grateful for having found this spot where we can keep our hands and minds busy for the remainder of our lives. Our son, Elliot, is a chicken whisperer, flock tender and flower lover. It seems as though these things run in the family…



Friends & Family

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for our extended family and our community of friends who have helped along the way, planting seeds, weeding beds and harvesting produce. They provide a balance when we need a sounding board, nurture us when we’re tired and hungry and laugh alongside us as we learn. It does take a village and we would not be here without their support.
