Our Story. Our Passion. Our Purpose.
Thank you for visiting our site! We are a husband and wife team that are working together to achieve our dream of living and thriving on a farm. Join us on our adventure in beginning our lives together and establishing our roots in the countryside of the Amana Colonies in Iowa.
Ethan has been making custom woodworking projects for our home and others over the past few years. He is excited to bring his talents to a larger audience. As a fixer, builder, and doer; Ethan is always looking for the next challenge. He was born an entrepreneur, as he began one of his first businesses at the age of thirteen. Ethan is a classically trained Agronomist and Horticulturist, so working with furniture was a natural fit. He loves working with anything growing or with what once grew.
Melissa enjoys making small crafts and loves to bake. She hopes to share these skills that her mother and grandmother taught her at a young age. Melissa also loves modern farmhouse designs, and she has a passion for decorating and renovating their century-old farmhouse.
Living on the farm brings a new adventure every day! Stay tuned to our social media sites and blog posts for regular updates. Please feel free to contact us anytime with comments or questions. We look forward to sharing our story with you!
