"The LORD God took man
and put him in the Garden of Eden
to work it and take care of it."-Genesis 2:15
We are James and Kendra Ashby. We have been married for 30 years.
We have five daughters and six grand children. We are both from New Albany.
We feel we have a calling to help provide healthy food to people. We live in the city and have turned the majority of our yard into an urban farm.
We have spent the past 10 years growing on less than 1/4 of an acre in town. In September of 2018 we were blessed with the ability to buy 4 acres of farm land. Not only has this made our dream of growing food a reality but this farm land has been in the family for over 100 years. Owned by James's great grandparents Joseph and Martha Rodewig. Prior to that time period it was owned by his great grandmothers parents the Turners.
We feel blessed to farm this beautiful peace of land.
Our dream is to grow healthy food for our community and spread our love of growing food to everyone. Making healthy food affordable and local is our top priority.
