Born and raised in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, Alan spent two years on the island of O’ahu studying at the University of Hawai’i Manoa and taking to the skies at a flight school on the west side of the island. While failing to obtain any credentials from either of these institutions, he was successful in discovering his passion in life: working with the earth and growing food. A newcomer to the world of sustainable agriculture, he spent the next two years at Michigan State University’s Student Organic Farm as a student and assistant instructor learning as much as he could about the field; a field about which the more he learned, the more he wished to discover. Equipped with newfound knowhow and just enough foolishness to want to start his own farm, Alan finds himself in Chatham, Michigan as a North Farm Apprentice with dreams of creating a farm to call his own.
