My name is Ashley and I'm a passionate, part-time vegetable gardener and assist my parents with the cattle on their farm. In the spring of 2013 my partner and I moved home from British Columbia. My body was so sick and I didn't even know it. I was struggling with symptoms of Endometriosis, had gained weight and was stressed, but thought I was "handling" it just fine. I was completely out of touch with myself. 

 

As soon as we arrived back home, I fell in love with spending all of my free time at my family farm, just simply being. Being with myself and my thoughts, being with my family, being with our animals and being with mother nature. Nutrition and my overall  physical and mental wellness folded into this story soon after, and although it's an ongoing journey, I've never felt better physically and mentally.

 

To this day, my husband and I spend most weekends out on my family farm because we both feel like our best selves when we can be outside, moving our bodies and breathing fresh air. I have two large gardens where I sell fresh, spray-free produce throughout the summer months, and during the winter I help my family with our cattle operation. In 2020, we started offering grass-fed beef in our online store, so be sure to check that out here.

When I'm not working, you can find me practicing yoga, making friends with cows, spending time with our three cats, PB, Min and Luna, tending to my house plants, eating chips and binge watching The Office on Netflix.​

THE dream TEAM

This is the dream team that makes things happen every day! None of us could do what we do without each other.
