OUR FAMILY

 

Soon after Ian Fels and Victoria Roos were married they took the next plunge into farming in 2012. Having long been a dream of theirs, the land option presented itself and
the first seed was planted.

Ian and Victoria make their home in the View Ridge neighborhood of Seattle along with a clutch of chickens and a couple cats.
Victoria is also a photographer as well as a long-time employee at a local media company. And she likes to make sweaters for small animals.
Ian came back to the farming of his youth after serving in the US Coast Guard and being a snowboard shop owner. It is also rumored that he enjoys a nice twenty-sided die.
