The Author’s Story:

When my dad was first diagnosed with prostate cancer and had radiation, i pushed my folks to start eating more fresh produce and preferably organics. My mom really upped her game from the broiled slab of meat and block of frozen-veggies dinners that i had grown up on, and dad said he had never eaten so well. While my dad had been a suit-and-tie, IBM guy who often said, “People never change,” he became well-versed in holistic treatments and began to take well-informed control of his own course of action. I’m not taking any credit for his changes, but he outran cancer for well over 20 years, perpetually learning, running his charity golf events, doing a bit of travel, always taking care of our family while looking dapper and in good color, gracious and smiling.

Lucy, Eileen, Brigid and KatieHe and I renovated this farmhouse in 2013, and i started taking care of the orchard, shaping rows for crops and an herb garden, and learning to care for four red hens. Bringing farm-fresh food to my folks was a way i could contribute to dad’s health as well as his enjoyment of life, take a little work off my mom’s hands, and sit and chat about something other than cancer.

The idea for this business came from what we learned about the role of food in health, and dad helped me get set up just a few months before he passed. But all of what I do here is based on experience, research, and strong values.

We learned more than I ever wanted to know. But the goals of this farm developed as we learned, and here you have it: Produce with a Purpose – fresh produce, grown for disease-fighting and preventive health value, delivered with resources and information, cooking tips, and EASY but crazy-delicious recipes…as well as support, encouragement, holistic thinking and even a bit of humor.
