If you would have asked a young Jonathon about being a farmer, he would have laughed at the question. He had never even considered it. However, he did spend his high school Saturdays working in an organic garden for a neighbor. After attending college where he earned a degree in Accounting and sitting at a desk for 40 hours a week, he found himself back in that neighbor’s garden wondering what to do next. Life took him to Captain’s Creek Organic Farm in Victoria, Australia where he learned to grow vegetables on a larger scale. Now back in his home state, he is passionate about growing and delivering the freshest, tastiest food he can possibly grow. The best food is made with fresh real ingredients and is shared with people you love. Building a community around food and farming is his goal in life.
Hannah graduated with a degree in Advertising & Public Relations in 2012 and although she enjoyed the creative work of advertising and graphic design, she was seeking adventure that couldn’t be found in a cubicle. At the start of 2013 she found herself weeding baby beets in 90+ degree weather during her first week in Australia, wondering what she had gotten herself into. She soon attended her first farmer’s market as a producer at Buninyong Farmer’s Market and was hooked. While there she also discovered a love for sourdough baking and her beloved goats. After returning home to North Dakota she was brimming with dreams of sourdough bread, micro goat dairies, artisan cheese, and organic veggies. She is passionate about local food and the adventures planned for Forager Farm and can’t wait to see where their dreams take them.
