Morning Glory farmers grow more than vegetables, fruits, flowers and animals—we raise kids, too. Founders Jim and Debbie Athearn started the tradition with Prudence, Simon and Dan, all of whom now have children of their own—you may have seen some of the third generation helping out at the farm this year.
The youngest Athearn, Alden, was born to Robyn and Simon in June of 2018. Here he is 14 months later, performing some quality control tests on a just-husked ear of fresh sweet corn from our fields earlier this month.
This summer the Moglo “farmily” grew again when our fruit chief, Lydia Sylvia, gave birth to a little boy she and her husband Leigh named Abraham. We’re all thrilled by the addition, and hope someday he’ll join the crew here too!
