Our Path, Our Dream

We both grew up near the small town of LeRoy, MN. After graduating from UW Stevens Point, we moved to Boone, NC to spend some time living in the Appalachian Mountains. During our time there we spent a lot of time hiking, camping, and foraging. Rachel worked at a homeless shelter & crisis facility while Kalvin apprenticed at an organic & biodynamic farm. After getting married in the fall of 2016 we decided it was time to move back home and put down roots in order to focus on our dream: Fiddlehead Knob.

Our Spare Time

When we aren’t devoting time to the farm, we enjoy playing music, studying herbal medicine, practicing yoga, and hiking with our dog, Irie. We are also very passionate about cooking and preserving the food that we grow and forage.

Our Farm

The ten acre farmstead where Fiddlehead Knob is located has been farmed and tended to by Rachel’s family for four generations. The property sits near acres of state wildlife forests and beautiful prairies, providing us with an abundance of thriving flora and fauna.
