Daisy helped to start Copper Moose Farm back in 2006 and has been managing it ever since. Growing up in Northern New Mexico, Daisy has roots in organic agriculture as her mother owned and ran an organic apple orchard. She graduated from the University of Utah with an Environmental Science degree. Daisy lives in Park City with her husband, son and Red Dog, and spends as much time recreating in the mountains with her family as the farm allows!
Ben is going on his 6th year here at CMF. He came to the property having worked for Basin recreation in their trails department and fell in love with the landscape and wanted to learn more about growing food. Ben grew up in the great state of Maine and went to Green Mountain College where he studied recreation. You may also see Ben slinging lobster rolls at the Park Silly market.
My Philosophy: Food should be fun! It should taste great, be satisfying, unite your friends and family and most importantly, food should support your health! Our bodies function, perform and thrive as a result of the NUTRIENTS we give it. It is my belief that we can’t outsmart nature when it comes to nutrients and thus our foods should be those sourced closest to the Earth; we should be getting our nutrients through quality plants, animals and healthy fats. I am currently a nutrition consultant and owner of Primal Peak, LLC. I am a nutritionist for the University of Utah Gymnastics team, and teach CrossFit at CrossFit Park City. I am a mother of two young boys and am lucky to have a like-minded and supportive husband. I love to cook, share this love with my kids, and be creative in and out of the kitchen.
Todd joined Copper Moose as a volunteer in 2013 and is now a full time member of the crew. He is originally from Park City, but spent a year at The Farm School in Massachusetts learning how to farm. He is passionate about the process of growing food and enjoys sharing that experience with others. When not digging in the dirt, Todd can be found mountain biking and skiing with his wife and two boys.
