Hi, I'm Remi! I was 11 years old at the start of this farming adventure in 2011, and when my parents moved back to their hometown in 2019, I decided to plant myself in Missouri and continue running the farm. Kaitlyn and I got married in March of '21, after working together most of 2020. She's not only the coolest person in the world (IMO), but she has a passion for animal care and natural living.
Together we are managing all aspects of sales & marketing, and care for the pigs and young poultry. We are also the faces you'll most commonly see giving farm tours, or at the Brookside Farmers Market!
We find fulfillment in caring for creation and serving others, and love doing both of those from our small farm in Concordia, MO.
David and Kim began David's Pasture in 2011 after growing tired of corporate America, and the lies in our food system. They began with a single batch of chickens, and the business slowly grew over the course of time. In January of 2019, (most of) the Kesten family moved back to their home state of Florida to be with and care for relatives. Even so, they are still very much a part of David's Pasture, and they hope to eventually begin a second farm there in Bradenton.
John manages the beef herd, daily poultry moves, and egg collecting/ washing. He is also an integral part of the planning and inner-workings of the business. The Cox children enjoy helping move chickens and collecting eggs.
Dave is a grandfather, family friend, and the world's best delivery guy! He's also Amber Cox's dad :) You won't meet anyone with a bigger heart, smile, or collection of practical jokes. He and his wife Pam live on the Cox's farm, and they can see us move chickens from their window!
Ben has been living on the farm since January '21, helping John with sustainable logging and learning about silvopasture. He's decided to continue working for us as a farm hand, and has also started his own flock of Katahdin sheep. We are excited to have Ben here as a part our team!
