Jim was born on the Family Farm in Concord, Massachusetts. While life has taken him to many places and in many directions, he has always maintained a connection to the soil/land. He will say it is in his blood! In 2003, (7 years before he could be there full time) Jim and his husband Tom, purchased a home in Vermont. With just .6 (notice the point) of an open acre on the edge of a picturesque Vermont village they began preparing for the time when this would be their full-time home that would be as self sustaining as possible. Jim’s food philosophy is “If we don’t raise it, we know the person who does.
Tom was born in Amsterdam, NY and until he met Jim lived an urban/city life. His parents did garden. His mother worked with flowers and his father did a vegetable garden. He brings computer savvy and brawn to our endeavors. Tom prefers the sunny days and really enjoys consuming the bountiful results of our endeavors.
We would be remiss if we did not include Abigail! She rules Fayrehale 🙂
