About us:

We are Brooke, Sean, Rebecca and Todd. We are organic farmers in the valley. Brooke and Sean are “Wicked Good Produce”, and Todd and Rebecca are “Two Bear Farm”. We came up with the totally crazy idea of starting a store. Our store will focus on getting as much local and bioregional food as possible to our community. Much of it will come from our farms but we look forward to also selling from Montana’s other amazing ranchers and farmers. It’s going to be great but since we are also farming, we need a great crew. We are looking for gregarious, outgoing and self-motivated people to help sell the concept of a local food economy to our customers! We feel like it’s time to take a stand….the farmers’ stand…get it?
