Tammie & George"Big" George and Tammie spent their first 17 years together raising the kids and farming. For the rest of their careers they taught English in Princeton, Coon Rapids, Qatar, Fergus Falls and finally in Maple Lake at the Jane Goodall Environmental Sciences Academy. In August of 2022 they decided to retire from education and become more involved in Walker Farms.
Walker Farms originally began in 1980 under the loving care of Tammie and George C. They raised pigs, vegetables, conventional crops, and three amazing children; George G., Karen, and Andy. They persevered through the market crashes, drought, and economic changes for many years. They decided to shutter the farm in the early 2000's and pivot to education where they could help grow young minds both here and abroad.
George G. began farming on is own in Wisconsin, following in his parents footsteps. His passion for sustainability led him to farming with draft horses, raising grass-fed beef, pastured poultry and pork all while building a career as a farrier.
While Tammie and George C. were away in Qatar teaching English, Andy returned to the farm along with his wife Becky (2012). After reading about pasture-based production systems, they began raising pastured poultry, then pork, and started to develop the Walker Farms you see today.
In 2017, Andy and George decided farm together, formally forming Walker Farms, LLC.
