Christian and Laura live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and operate two houses. They also grow corn, soybeans and alfalfa. The crops are primarily used to feed their herd of about 100 dairy cows. The farm was established in 2010 by Christian, who is the sixth generation to take over these hallowed grounds. And hallowed they are! In the early 1700s, their family acquired the grounds from William Penn, who directed the planning and development of Philadelphia. Centuries later, in 2010, Christian began dairy farming, then added poultry in 2016.
