Dale and Jan
We grew up in Medina County, Ohio and met in the County 4H Club. Although we headed off to college in different places and Dale ended up in the Army and Jan ended up in the Navy, we still managed to fall in love and build a 36+ year marriage together. Through the years we raised two wonderful children, lived around the world, changed careers, and held onto a dream that one day we would settle down on a small farm.
Jan became obsessed by knitting, and with Dale’s wholehearted support, we took the idea of the farm and shaped it to include fiber animals. We found our property after a long search and also found the simple joys of creating the farm and building our farm business.
Although we both work full-time jobs right now, we look forward to the day when we both have the chance to give full focus to Fair Winds Farm and building the business to allow us to give back to our community.
