Kimberly did not grow up on a farm but she was quickly immersed in the lifestyle when she met Chester. Kimberly is a professional artist who uses her artwork to advocate for farmers and young farmer education. You can see her work here.
When Chester & Kimberly started dating in 2008, their first dates were spent baling hay and harvesting spinach. It was in the fields of southern New Jersey where they fell in love and dreamed of owning their own farm. They married in 2012 and began their family. They have two children, Courtney and Kent.
After years of searching and much consideration, they purchased their farm in 2019. Although the property is not the conventional, open field format that many people think of when they hear the word “farm”, it has endless possibilities for their out-of-the-box thinking, agricultural practices, and the lifestyle they wish to live as a family. The Englishs look forward to educating their customers about forest farming and the ability to grow specialty crops and meats amongst a managed forest system.
