We started out about as far from farming as you could get.
My background was in financial management and psychology, and I was a corporate HR Director for
over ten years.
Mark's background was in electrical engineering and production planning and he was a Manufacturing Manager for over 26 years.
When the company we both worked for was purchased, we found ourselves in a position where we could move in a new direction.
I studied the healing arts, delving into hypnotherapy, Reiki, coaching, Horticultural Therapy and plant sciences.
Mark pursued his love of fine woodworking.
Both of us utilized our business acumen and training to develop a lifestyle business that educates and inspires
So with a nod to Max Yasgur (think 1960's Woodstock) and to our beloved Daschund, Maxwell, Max's Farm was named and a new journey began.
