Our names are Brandon and Laura Cook, and we are the owners of Cook Family Enterprises, LLC. Brandon volunteers in the Owls Head-Mt. View Fire Department. Laura studied Farm & Ranch Management at the University of Tennessee at Martin. She works remotely for a Connecticut-based horticultural company, and is pursuing a Master’s in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Environment.
Not too long after we started dating in 2017, we took a drive down to a livestock auction in Vermont, and came home with the 87 lb calf that started it all! Brandon and his father set to work building our barn, and we quickly filled it with critters of all shapes and sizes. Later that year, Brandon left his full-time job as an automotive mechanic to devote himself to growing our hobby into a profitable business. Our farm is still a work in progress, and we are very excited for all of the developments that 2021 will bring!
