Sue Earle and Troy Turple

Sue Earle and Troy Turple are outdoors enthusiasts who came to farming later in life. Passionate about food and nature, Sue left a university job to figure out the ropes of sustainable farming. She produces spray-free vegetables which are sold through a CSA program and used as ingredients in the burritos she cooks and sells at the local farmers' market.  While Troy still works away from the farm he spends his downtime helping to make hay, feed animals, and lead goat walks. In the occasional free moments they find between fixing ancient machinery, mending snapped fence posts and squishing squash bugs, Sue and Troy enjoy mountain biking, kayaking, hiking and cooking up a storm to fuel the next adventure.
