Here's a little bit about the farm and owners:
"Anna and Doug named their operation Vilicus Farm; vilicus is the Latin word for steward. To steward means to manage with care, and specifically the Crabtrees want to be good managers of the land. “There are millions of acres of land that somebody is going to farm, and I want to be one of the ones that does that in a respectful way,” Doug explained. To them this means taking care of the different wildlife that makes their property their home, nourishing the soil, and respecting the water that passes through their place. "
