James Bersée

bersee_utz@yahoo.com                                                                                                            Jim worked at Anderson's Lawn and Garden Center when he was in high school, following a natural passion for gardening passed down from his Mother.  A late career change transitioned Jim to farming, more full time than ever;  In 2009 he planted oats and clover for soil conditioning on the 17 acres the new generation farm had acquired from the Utz Farm.  Following that, he planted hay - - first mammoth baling came out in July of 2010.  He and Teri also planted and harvested enough veggies and herbs to set up at Farmer's Markets nearby. Prior to Nathan and Heather joining us in 2011 to start the CSA gardens, Jim planned the first apple orchard and oversaw the planting of over 300 dwarf and semi-dwarf trees (several varieties) earlier in 2010. 

Teri Utz Bersée

bersee_utz@yahoo.com                                                                                                           Teri is one of Bernard and Vonnie Utz's six daugthers, so her roots are right here on this land they are now farming - with renewed interest. She has worked professionally as a graphic designer and fine artist, but always longed to get back to the farm.  Teri has been following and practicing a natural, holistic approach to her health for over 30 years, so practicing sustainable farming is yet another way to further her studies and help others find better health.
