Moving from Nashville to Florida and going from life on the road to life on the farm might seem a bit intimidating to some but Nina and Brendon have farming in their blood. Generations of farming runs deep in their veins and it shows! Buying this farm in Florida was a chance for them to live the lifestyle they wanted and create the perfect sanctuary for family and friends to gather together and learn about the benefits of a healthy, organic lifestyle. 

From raising chickens and cows to growing and sharing their own food, Nina and her husband have created not only a home, but have also developed a thriving business.
