Larry has always been a dreamer. Growing up working in tobacco, he realized that the spray they used for controlling suckers always made him sick. Surely there was a better way to farm. It has taken years, but finally Harmony Fields Farm became a reality sixteen years ago. The name represents what we are trying to do in being "in tune with nature" but also resonates with the other passion of his life which is music. After many years working as a full-time professor of music in colleges and universities in Kentucky and Texas, Larry now works part-time helping the people of Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church learn how to use their musical gifts in ministry to others. This gives him more than enough time to devote to "getting in tune with nature" here on our certified organic farm, Harmony Fields.
Beth is shown here where she is happiest. In the middle of her flowers. She has loved flowers since she was little girl growing up on a family farm in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. She is also a very talented musician and for over twenty years shared those gifts with the students she taught everyday as the music teacher at Bowen Elementary in Louisville. Last summer she officially retired after more than thirty years teaching in public schools and higher education. She still continues to share her passion for inspiring kids to make music as Children's Choir Director at Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church. Her passion for music is matched only by her passion for the natural world and the value of organic farming.
Matthew is our oldest son and lives in Louisville with his wonderful wife (and our much adored daughter-in-law) Claire, and their newborn son Rex Walker Brandenburg. Matthew works in sales full-time and Claire works full-time as a Food Scientist with Yum. They spend many hours helping out here on the farm and can often be seen helping out at the Farmer's Market.
Nathan is our youngest son and has a deep love for nature and animals. His passion for organic agriculture drives his motivation to get out in the fields in all kinds of weather and do the things that must be done to keep Harmony Fields running efficiently. Thankfully, he lives here on the farm so he can devote his heart and soul to making our farm successful.
