Amy and Darren Long, Owners, Fox Gap Farm

First Farm, First Tractor

Clearly, we had no idea what we were getting into...

...but somehow, it worked.

From there to here

Two city folk just crazy enough (about each other) to run off and buy a farm...

We love food. We love food so much that we wanted to make our own. We care a lot about organic and what we feed our family, but were tired of dropping our whole paycheck at Whole Foods. There must be a better way. Of course, get a farm and do it yourself! Why not? There are literally so many good reasons why not, but we were just dumb enough to ignore them all and can't be more happy that we did.

Fox Gap is our second farm, but the seed for running off and buying our first (The Farm at Stillwater Spring) was planted during a trip to Scotland. It was November 2016 and we wanted to drink whiskey. There may be no better place in the world to do that than an island off the northwest coast of Scotland called Skye. Most residents live a tranquil agrarian existence, the pace of life moves slowly, and you see smiles just about everywhere you go. We were hooked. 

And you should go too. If you do, drink the Talisker. And drink enough to come home (or not) and buy your farm too.
