Emily Anderson has a background in environmental science and science education, and is currently finishing a PhD in resource management and environmental studies with a focus on dairy producers in Costa Rica while helping to start Two Roads Farm. Although she grew up in downtown Toronto, farming is in her genes on her fathers’ side, and the urge to head for the country has taken over. She is passionate about both eating and growing delicious, sustainable, healthy food.
Sam Croome trained in forest management in Scotland, working in timber harvesting and renewable energy before heading to Canada for a friends’ wedding. He got distracted and never returned. He always knew he wanted to own his own parcel of land, and having married a like minded soul in 2012, the stage was set. Since coming to Canada, he has not worked a single day in forestry. Instead, as a climber and a tower rigger in the telecom industry, he has got to see most of British Columbia.
Wilf joined the farm in May 2015. His favourite things are working – especially shovelling compost and moving rocks, the animals, caterpillars and worms, being outside, tasting dirt and rocks, blueberries, playing in the water and watching mum or dad blow on a dandylion.
Hunter (AKA Dogbear, Furbeast) is amazing. He came to us from Dogwood Rescue in 2012
and we couldn’t have asked for a better dog. His favourite things are hunting rodents, staring out of windows, policing the ravens and eagles so they stay away from the chickens, sampling the brassicas and carrots, truck rides, orange kitties, small people, and bedtime
Mort (fluffy) and Julien (not fluffy) joined the farm from the Comox Valley SPCA in February 2016. While they are both orange and friendly, that is where the similarities end. Mort is a playful, uncoordinated soul who likes to be outside most of the time, chasing shadows and climbing trees. He also likes to annoy Julien by being ridiculously friendly, and play with Hunter’s feet while he’s trying to nap. Julien is a quieter beast who likes to snooze all day, have a snuggle, then go out on top secret cat missions.
