About Our Farm
Ashley, Patrick, & Liam
My wife Ashley and I decided to put the big city living behind us in search of the simple life instead. We purchased our farm in 2018, and the hard work hasn't stopped for a single day. Its not as simple a life as we dreamed with magical eyes but we have come a long way and are genuinely enjoying every day.
We love meeting new people and sharing ideas with other small farmers, so please contact us with questions or experiences. The future farmer in our laps is our son Liam. He was welcomed to this world on July 4th, 2018, and we sure look forward to the day he can lend a hand.
When Ashley and I made our dreams come true and purchased our farm there was only one name that would be fitting. JP’s Farm. It is with great honor that my wife, Ashley and I can recognize the hard-working, loving grandfather that she grew up idolizing. Our JP's farm carries his name and passes his values from one generation to the next. Let us share a little bit about a lot of man.
JP Chavez was born in a small rural town that thrived on farming and taking care of various farm animals. JP's father was a ranch foreman and involved JP in nurturing cattle, sheep, goats, chickens, and horses.
One of JP's jobs was tending the garden piled high with tomatoes, cantaloupe, squash, and cucumbers. JP especially loved watching the pumpkins mature because soon they would be turned into pumpkin pies covered with sweet whipped cream from their cow.
Years later JP would be drafted into the US Army and served in the Korean War. Upon his return home, he would marry Maria and raise his family to value farming and animals. Hens freely roamed their farm; bees pollinated the vegetables and fruit trees, milk nurtured new calves and baby kittens. Sweet cream turned into cheese, and JP's children and grandchildren learned to value farm life as he did as a young boy.
