Amanda M. Schenk Grisa
Amanda's family has been on again off again farming for the last 5 generations in the Naples Hills of the Finger Lakes. Today she incorporates her knowledge of agriculture with her scientific background in environmental science, biology, and forestry. Amanda's formal background is backed by a B.S in Biology, M.S in Sustainable Forest Management and years of professional experience in natural resource management and agricultural research. These diverse experiences have helped, to develop a dynamic understanding in designing an ecologically based homestead and farm. Her passion though, could not be complete without sharing these experiences with her beloved Naples community.
From seed to market, our family farm grows food to nourish you and your loved ones. At market and around the farm, you'll find Amanda and Jeremiah as well as our sons Beau and Otto. Our dogs, Remi, Siggi, and Sitka frequently join us in the field and the pastures with our beloved cows, pigs, goats, and many poultry.
Since childhood Jeremiah has had a passion for health and sustainable living. These values were established as he learned to cook from scratch in the kitchen with his mom, a culinary teacher, and his dad, an avid outdoors-man. In pursuing his studies in health sciences, he soon discovered he could make his greatest impact keeping others healthy by improving the food we eat. He is formally educated with a B.S. in Biology and and M.A.T. in secondary science education. He currently teaches science with past experience in agricultural business and research. Today he uses these vast experiences to educate others and share holistically healthy foods.
