Jake is a native of Harmony, PA and grew up hunting and fishing on the property where  Fallen Aspen Farm is now located, Plain Grove Fens Natural Area. He has always been deeply passionate about plants whether they're in forests, wetlands or on farms; that passion led him to apply his ecology and permaculture knowledge to various farming ventures before he founded Fallen Aspen Farm. In a past life, Jake was the head brewer at Full Pint Brewing where he developed relationships with may of Pittsburgh's more notable chefs and restaurants. While not on the farm, he continues to work with his father as a woodworker at Riverwood Trading Co.
