After a life in the city and suburbs, Theresa and Jake Bentz wanted a closer connection to their food and became first-generation sheep farmers. Get Bentz Farm is located on 40 acres near Northfield, Minnesota. “There’s so much we didn’t grow up with and we’re learning every day.” Theresa credits her community for their support of small, sustainable farms. We all wear a lot of different hats, making it difficult to sustain a work-life balance. “There are times I’m really good at keeping all the balls in the air and rocking it, but there are also times when the balls drop and that’s okay.” In the TransFARMation podcast, Theresa also highlights the teamwork seen on the farm. “Our kiddos get to watch Mom and Dad run a business in our home and watch us work together. which is cool for kids to see; maybe that’s how it should be.” Listen to the full podcast episode with Theresa Bentz.
