About the Farmer

Denise Skidmore grew up in western NY.  In her early years the family was poor while Dad tried to make a start of a new business, and the garden was how the family ate.  Denise and her sister helped out in the garden regularly.

She and her husband long dreamed of having elbow room and working from home, so the farm lifestyle grew up out of those desires and a background of growing her own childhood food.  She eats grass fed meat and fats for her health, but knows that buying half a steer is just not practical for every family, so she decided to raise a smaller high omega 3 animal that can fit in a normal kitchen freezer.

Her other life is as a software programmer, which she studied for at RIT.
