About Us

In 2005 we felt the call to purchase land and learn to steward it, providing good food for ourselves and others. Aman is the Hebrew word for faithful, but it also means guardian, established, master craftsman and even rock.

When Richard and I were married in Toronto in 1983, farming was the farthest thing from our minds! But sometime in the early 1990’s we both started to feel the call to sell everything and move to the country.

Much to the disappointment of our parents we sold the house we designed and built, sold Richard’s successful business, packed up our two young boys and moved to Athens.

We fell in love with the people and wonderful rural lifestyle of Athens. For fifteen years we worked hard, became very involved in our community and home schooled our children.

In 2005, with our kids grown up and us in mid-life, we felt the call again. This time it was to purchase land and learn to steward it, providing good food for ourselves and others.

Through this whole journey the faithfulness of God has not only been our anchor but also our motivation. Hence the name Aman Farms. Aman is the Hebrew word for faithful, but it also means guardian, established, master craftsman and even rock.

Join us on our journey as we faithfully steward the land.
