Having grown up on a small family farm and working on neighbor’s farms Floyd Davis has been involved in farming to some extent nearly all of his life. From raising beef cattle, to milking cows, to owning and operating a hay business that paid for a college education, working with the soil seems to be his passion. After graduating from college with a degree in Business Management and Economics he spent the next twelve years trying to figure out how to get back into farming. After buying and moving to the farm in Kinsman, Ohio and selling sweet corn from the front yard the vegetable production business seem to fall into place. Since starting the Red Basket Farm, his passion and vision have earned him several awards including 2011 George Sherac Memorial Conservation Farmer of the Year, 2015 Thomas Schwartz Environmental Friendly Farmer of the Year Award and was honored as a Local Food Champion for starting Northeast Ohio’s first Farm to Fork school lunch program. His biggest accomplishment to date was meeting Amy Arnold and bringing her passion and experience to the farm.
Amy grew up in Warren, Ohio and attended Kent State University studying Education. With a love for sales and marketing, she always found herself managing and teaming up with local small business owners to expand and grow their business. In 2010 Amy met Floyd and immediately discovered his passion for farming and the lifestyle that came with it. After falling in love with not only the farmer, but the farm, she came on full time in 2012. Floyd and Amy are determined to bring fresh, local food to our community and connect and build personal, lasting relationships with our customers. They have taken their passion backed it with their faith in God and belief that the great secret of life lies in the Law of Attraction.
