Simon Athearn

is the CEO of Morning Glory Farm, working alongside his parents and his brother Daniel. He lives in West Tisbury in his great-grandparents’ farmhouse, with his wife Robyn and their children Rose, Ignatius and baby Alden—the 12th generation of Athearns on the Martha’s Vineyard.

Schooled first as a pastry chef and then as a businessman, Simon returned home to work on the family farm. He is an aspiring English tea rose gardener, a vegetable fanatic and a trumpet player, and enjoys spending time on the Tisbury Great Pond with his family.

Daniel Athearn

Daniel returned to the Vineyard and Morning Glory Farm after receiving a degree in aquaculture from the University of Maine. He quickly became indispensable on the farm as a skilled machine operator and irrigation specialist. Although he spends many hours in the tractor seat working the soil and tending the crops, Daniel still maintains his presence on the water with recreational fishing, lobstering, gathering and sailing.

Meg Athearn

Daniel’s wife, works on the farm as a field leader and tractor operator and at the Morning Glory Stand at the West Tisbury Farmers Market. The couple have three children, Clara, Zeb and Penelope Louise. They live on family land in Chilmark, where the Morning Glory Farm cattle graze in water-view pastures.

Robyn Honey Athearn

Robyn Athearn grew up in rural Pennsylvania with young, enthusiastic “do-it-yourself” parents. Together they built their family home, a project that spanned several years and to this day is still considered a work in progress. They had a large vegetable patch where her father and Mother produced a mainstay of their diet. Her mother Rosemary was a Penn State ‘Red Phone’ Master Gardener who helped aspiring gardeners with their gardening questions.  Robyn met her now husband Simon while fishing off of east beach in Edgartown.
