In 1993 my Grandfather, David Haas was killed in a car accident. He had lived his entire life on the rich soils of Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania. People said he didn’t have a green thumb, but a green arm.
With his passing my Grandmother gave me a jar of his beans, these turned out to have great historical and cultural importance.
A passion was born.
Our passion became our craft and our lifestyle is our dedication to that craft. Happy Cat Farm exists to teach people how to grow and forage their own food sustainably.
We touch seeds everyday in our practice of seed to table farming. They teach us patience and bring ritual to our lives, things that modern life is so void of.
“We stand for what we stand on” -Wendell Berry
