About Us
Vern Stockwell grew up on a 600 acre farm in South Dakota and his wife Becky Gardner is from the Midwest, although not from a farming family. They moved from Anchorage to Palmer in 2001 with their three children to turn their urban gardening habit into a full-fledged farm. They now grow a variety of vegetables on their 5 acres and use only use organic inputs on their farm. They partner with Colony Next Step to bring young adults with disabilities to work on the farm, inspired by the desire to help others like their son, who has Down syndrome.
