Team of Whistling Wren Farm
A second generation family-owned farm comprised of 35 acres, Whistling Wren Farm was my childhood home. Growing up on the farm was constant learning and adventure. Today my family continues on with the traditions and dedication to improving the land that was instilled by our parents. The gift of beautiful sunrises, magnificent sunsets and star-filled nights fill the pages of my life's journey back home again. My path as a woman, wife and mother has always had a common intersection with service to others.
