Who is Moyer Farms?
We (Nathan and Erin) started Moyer Farms in an effort to build a farming business that could not only provide for our 4 kids, but also include our kids. We are both 2nd generation farmers and grateful to be farming (except when it has rained for 2 weeks solid, been a drought, or hail and wind just pummeled the fields..…then we start imagining what it would be like to sell everything and move to Colorado, wait tables, and be ski bums).
Nathan has always been in agriculture. Growing up, he put in a LOT of hours on his parent’s produce farm. He graduated from Northwest Missouri University in 1999 with a bachelors in agricultural business. He worked for over 15 years in the agricultural industry, gaining valuable business and agronomy skills on his path to farming on his own. He finally took the plunge in 2016 and started farming full time. Being able to put his ideas into action and have his family be a part of the journey has definitely been worth the struggles.
Erin graduated from the University of Missouri in 1998 with a bachelors in agricultural economics and from the University of Kansas in 2003 with a bachelors in nursing. She has been a registered nurse at North Kansas City Hospital since 2003 and is also a certified health coach through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. She is a wellness junky and believes strongly in the importance of good food for good health. How convenient that she is the wife of a produce farmer!
The Moyer kiddos are enjoying being a part of the family business. However, they are still convinced the barn would make an awesome American Ninja Warrior Gym or massive basketball court. They seem to think that would be more fun than picking tomatoes!
