​Maggie is definitely not the typical teenager. She loves to help around the farm and knows a lot more about food and how to grow crops and raise animals than most adults do. She helps with most things around the farm from milking the goats to gathering the eggs to weeding the garden and admin work. When she finds time to do other activities outside of school and the farm, she loves to sing, participate in 4-H, and read.

Glenn grew up on a farm and has grown things (not just plants or animals) all his life, and loves to do it. He does a lot of tasks that keep the farm up and running every day, but aren't necessarily the jobs that are fun to do or can be easily seen. He's also the one who's on the farm almost 24/7 because he doesn't have many things off the farm that require his attention.

Gail grew up in the country, but not on a working farm and didn't have direct farm experience until she married Glenn. She does a lot of bookkeeping and organizational things for the farm, but doesn't usually find time to go out and take care of the animals on a regular basis. She does have a lot of interest in healthy and clean eating and helping to provide that for other people both in knowledge and the food we grow, produce, and sell.
