Janet's Story :
It’s funny how you go through life making statements about the kinds of things you will do or not do when you get older.
If I had to bet, probably every statement I have made has gone the exact opposite from what I planned.
In my memories, I can see myself as a young child saying that I couldn’t wait to get away from Indian River and explore the world. I also remember saying I wanted to live on the east coast and become a marine biologist.
And likely one of the funniest was that I would move to a big city and own my own apartment.
Interestingly enough, 30 years later, I find myself happily settled in Indian River, with the love of my life (who is also a local guy), 2 kids that I absolutely adore, an amazing career in the Public Health field (human health not marine health) and in my spare time we are farmers!
It is definitely not the life I had originally planned in my head, but you literally never know which way life will lead you.
I am proud and honoured to live in this community and feel privileged to have a farm where our kids can run and play.
We take pride in the food that we grow and work extremely hard to ensure that our customers buy only the freshest produce.
If this is what life is like, I can’t wait to see what comes next.
