Heidi and Kevin are both fully committed to the self sufficient lifestyle that is farming. They met in Vermont in 2011, and quickly bonded over their shared passion for sustainable living and food growing. The summer of 2013 they stumbled upon the Bethlehem Flower Farm for sale while on route to a hiking trip in the White Mountains. They fell in love with the property, and Heidi, a New Hampshire native that grew up hiking in these mountains, felt like it was the perfect spot to settle and grow a business.
Heidi's interest in farming began while in college, when she interned at a local organic farm during summer break. Her passion was solidified when she interned at the National Outdoor Leadership School's organic garden in Palmer AK, which provided food for the school and a small community CSA. She went on to manage the small farm for two more seasons until relocating to the east coast. As well as growing large home gardens, she managed the organic garden for Center for Whole Communities in Fayston Vermont for another season before finding her dream property up here in beautiful Bethlehem, NH!
Kevin's interest in sustainable living began after he finished his degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design at Vermont Technical College. His first job after graduating, where he would continue for 7 more seasons was at a sustainably driven Landscape Design and Build firm. He cultivated a diverse skill set and knowledge of native trees, shrubs and perennials. At the time he also lived on a working homestead and gained respect and knowledge for the simple life and home grown goodness.
