Rooted in love

 

 
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.

Tim

Tim grew up on a farm just east of St. Joseph, Missouri. Since then farming has led him around the world and back in his work with an international humanitarian aid organization. He is excited to be able to breathe life back into his maternal grandfather’s original home place just a mile south of where he grew up. Growing cut flowers has been nothing less than a challenge but his desire to develop a palette for his wife, Lynn to create something beautiful, and watching his kids enjoy some of his favorite pastimes, keeps him going.

lynn

Lynn is the daughter of two farm kids that grew up in the country side of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. She was born and raised in Hannibal but fondly remembers her visits to her grandparent’s farm. She is honored to be entrusted the legacy of Tim’s family’s homestead. She has always been a creative, primarily doing costume and clothing design; but working with the flowers feels like God’s way of taking her desire to create and bringing her closer to His creation.

She loves to care for animals and can’t wait for more to be added to the farm. For now, she stays busy chasing kittens, making mud pies, reading books, and loving on the family dog, Gus.
