We did not grow up on a farm, but were always around agriculture and knew early on that we wanted to have a farm one day. In 2011 we purchased a barn and 3 acres from Bill and Mary Jane Spear, mainly to accomodate the girl's 4-H projects. The Farm had been in Bill's family for several generations. In 2016 the remaining 27 acres and house were purchased, with the understanding that we would keep it a farm.
Our mission was to have a self sustaining piece of property while growing a family business. Three Sisters seemed to be a natural choice for a name, since the endeavor was for our daughters and their increasing interest in agriculture.
The goal of Three Sisters Farm is to produce high quality affordable products for our community, while growing our family farm for future generations.
Are There Really Three Sisters?
Yes, there really are three sisters!
Our three daughters help on the farm and are involved in 4-H and FFA. They have shown several of the animals raised on the farm and have competed in agricultural events at the county, state and national level through these organizations, winning several banners along the way.
Sara was the 2016 Garrett County Farm Queen and 2017 Miss Garrett County Farm Bureau, Emma was the 2020 Miss Garrett County Farm Bureau and Kyla was a 2017 Garrett County Farm Princess.
All three girls continue to be involved in the farming operation.
Tractors For Tots
Our family also believes in giving back and strengthening our community. In 2016 we started Tractors For Tots, a community charity that collects new agriculturally related toys and books to distribute to local children. The goal with tractors for tots is to help promote Agricultural education through play and use this concept to help reconnect and educate the younger generation about where their food comes from and to spark an interest to get involved in agriculture.
