John is just like the rest of his siblings: hard-working and always there to give a helping hand. John also has a great personality and infectious sense of humor that makes him a joy for everyone to be around, even when times get tough. As he gets older and his charm increases, he’s starting to fill older brother Pete’s shoes and take on a sales presence at the traveling farmer’s markets.
What is your role on the farm?
My role on the farm is to manage most of our greenhouses and high tunnels. I also focus on growing carrots and help Tim and Pete with any jobs or chores.
How do you see that role changing or growing in the future?
I can see my role changing in the future by being more of a salesman at markets, other than just a farmer.
What is your favorite family memory?
My favorite family memory would probably be the vacations we spent at the beach in North Carolina.
What is your favorite memory from the show?
My favorite memory from the show was when I bartered for my goat, Jerry. We had a lot of good times on the farm.
What do you enjoy about the family business?
The main thing I enjoy from the family business would be eating such fresh and local meats, eggs, and produce. Especially when my mom is cooking.
What is something about you that viewers or customers might be surprised to learn?
Customers might be surprised that I enjoy sitting around a bonfire playing a guitar and roasting weinies and marshmallows.
