Meet The Farmers

Cory and Elizabeth Bower purchased their farm in Gilmanton in 2016. It was raw land with a home. Through their efforts, they have established the well working farm that it is today. 

While Elizabeth comes from generation after generation of farmers including her own small family farm that she grew up on with cows and pigs, Elizabeth's passion for health and healing your body through diet and herbs stems from an autoimmune disease that was brought to the surface after a traumatic attack by a patient at work. Elizabeth was left out of work for an extensive amount of time with many specialists prescribing prescription after prescription with no success. Elizabeth turned to herbs and natural healing. This is where her knowledge and passion of herbal medicine really began and you'll find this when she talks about how she cares for her animals and how she develops her teas and products.

Cory grew up in the city of Niagara Falls but always loved the outdoors and wanted a different life for himself. He had friends that he would go hunting with and enjoyed hiking. Soon, he and Elizabeth met in 2013 and their dreams became one. Fast forward 3 years and they turned their dreams into a working farm that has continued to grow ever since.

100% HUMANELY RAISED AND PASTURE RAISED

People often ask how we can spend so much time with our animals and getting close to them. The answer is simple. Animals deserve to live a good, natural, and healthy life with kindness and compassion. They serve a greater purpose in our life and for that, they deserve daily belly rubs and our time. 

We provide the most natural habitat possible to our animals. Our pigs are rotated on wood lots so they can root and eat acorns as they naturally would do in the wild. Our poultry are able to roam freely, scratch, and peck the earth. Our rabbits roam freely and burrow in their own area. Each animal lives their life on our farm doing what they would naturally.
