Juan and Linda met in graduate school at the University of Virginia and spent their first year of marriage teaching in Vermont. They returned to Amelia in 1971 where Juan began farming full-time and Linda continued to teach. She started as the farm’s bookkeeper in 1977 after she left teaching to be a stay-at-home mom.
Colin and Robyn met while both were studying Crop and Soil Environmental Science and Agricultural Economics at Virginia Tech. Colin came back to the farm full-time after graduating in 2004.
Robyn worked as the county’s agricultural extension agent for three years and as a high school science and agriculture teacher for two years before starting to help at the farm and staying home with their three children – Evie, Sawyer, and Delia.
Of course, we couldn’t do anything without our wonderful employees!
