Meet Our Farmers

Ben Hoffman

BenBen is our farm owner and resident Chicken Whisperer. When he’s not feeding, watering, or talking to our chickens, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé, Natalie. In addition to being a chicken farmer, Ben is also a general contractor specializing in medical construction. He’s a self-admitted workaholic who actually enjoys working – weird, right?

 

Don Hoffman

DonDon is our Farm Manager and resident Chicken Wrangler. He enjoys spending time with his wife Stephanie and son Donnie. His 2 grown daughters have left the coop. His oldest daughter, Azura has recently made him a granddad. His younger daughter, Alyssa is currently attending Purdue University where she majors in Agronomy.

 

Stephanie Hoffman

Stephanie, Don, Donnie, AlyssaStephanie is our Office Manager and resident Chicken-Of-All-Trades. When she’s not spending time with her husband Don and son Donnie, or driving a school bus, or cooking a homemade meal, or gardening, she’s handling our day-to-day office operations and keeping those books! Stephanie keeps our boys organized and thank goodness someone does!

 

Natalie Zehr

Natalie, Zach, Calissa, BenNatalie is our Marketing and Social Media Manager (AKA, our Social Chicken). She enjoys spending time with her two kids, Zach and Calissa, and her fiancé Ben. In addition to handling the marketing and social media needs for our farm, Natalie also drives a school bus and runs her own photography company called Blue Umbrella Photography. Natalie obviously wrote this page and is shameless about using our farm website to plug her own photography company. (Hi, mom).

 

Dotsie Hoffman

8L3A5230Dotsie is Ben and Don’s mom. She’s our farm helper and resident Chicken Singer. If you ever meet her, don’t let her gray hair fool you! Dotsie can be found on any given day doing the work of 4 people around our farm. You can also find Dotsie in the fields during feeding time with a chicken held right up to her shoulder – singing a bunch of random songs that we’ve never heard before in our lives but the chickens seem to love! It’s a sight to be seen for sure and we plan on capturing these moments on video this year for everyone to enjoy!

Cutie

Cutie GirlOur farm wouldn’t be complete without our Cutie Girl! Serving as our assistant Chicken Wrangler, we would be remiss not to include her on our bio page. When Cutie hears the farm equipment fire up, she’s ready to go! She helps the boys with the farm chores and is one of the best chicken wranglers in the state of Indiana. She grew up with back yard chickens and they are some of her best friends! Cutie is, in our completely unbiased opinion, the greatest farm dog in the history of the world!
