Rob grew up in Alabama. Anna grew up in Sweden. In 1995, we met at the International Ball at the US Naval Academy where Rob was a Plebe (first year midshipman). After a little dating and a few more years of school, we got married in 1999 in Tullinge, Sweden.
Rob is still on active duty in the Navy. Anna finished her degree in Biology and worked for a while in a medical lab. However, since starting a family, she has been a full time Mom. We have 3 kids: Alex, Vicki, and Amanda.
We got started on the farming idea because we were not satisfied with the quality of foods available in the grocery store. While we could go buy good organic veggies and local meats, we are just nuts enough to think we can grow/raise it ourselves. However, this has expanded beyond just a hobby and family level production. Our goal is to establish enough diversity and income on the farm to do farming full time after Rob retires from the Navy.
