Meet the crew at the Flower Field Farm. What a great addition they have been to the Farmers' Market this year. Nathaniel and Rylee live on an organic wheat farm/cattle ranch in Banner County. The land is owned by Nathaniel's parents, Roger Lee Jr. and LaDona McGowan. Nathaniels's great-grandfather homesteaded the land over 100 years ago.
Nathaniel and Rylee wanted to spend more "working" hours at home and raising their family, Delaney 4, Eddie 3, Teagan 18 mos. and Rayfe 4 mos. Joy moved to Banner County in 2006 to be closer to family and quality schools for her children, Noah 15 and Kadan 13.
Together they offer a variety of products at the Farmers' Market including heirloom vegetables, freshly baked breads and pies, farm fresh eggs, cookies, and cinnamon rolls.
This is a hard working group of people dedicated to the land on which they live and their community. Nathaniel's mother, LaDona, will be growing produce for the Flower Filed Farm next year as will his twin brothers and their wives, Roger & Mandy and Ben & Tory. They plan to expand their offering and will be attending more markets next season. They also are adding 100 new hens this coming spring along with offering all natural pork.
