Living in Peculiar her whole life, until she graduated high school and moved away to attend college at William Jewell College in Liberty, MO earning her undergraduate degrees in Organizational Communication and Psychology.

Matt is originally from Alabama but moved a fair amount as a result of his Dad being a pilot, ending up in Lenexa, KS in 1989. Matt graduated from Shawnee Mission West in Overland Park, KS, attended Johnson County Community College where he got his associate’s degree, then transferred to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO where he received his bachelor’s degree in business.

Today Matt helps raise those two beautiful girls, and wears a few other hats as well. He is a project manager and estimator for Gun-Ko Traffic Control in Olathe, KS and owns and operates a small concrete business. And, of course, the farm.

There are more than 6 generations of farmers/ranchers in our family and we are extremely proud to carry on the tradition.
