True to the demands of an entrepreneur, Carol took on many roles within the company as it grew, often multitasking simultaneously as bookkeeper, purchasing manager, marketer, social director and janitor among other responsibilities. Today, she maintains an advisory and oversight role, devoting her time to employee satisfaction and engagement. A natural progression, drawing from her decades of experience as a social worker. Compassionate and grounded, she regularly invited employees in for homemade pot roast and potatoes while the company operated out of the original shop on the family farm.
Carol spends a lot of time living her Montana dream on the family’s farm. Always one to be hands-on, she manages a full-scale farming operation while caring for a flock of over 100 Targhee sheep. Rounding out the farm menagerie are goats, potbelly pigs, dogs, cats, and what her family suspects is the beginning of a sanctuary for retired horses. When not working the farm, she relaxes by working in the garden or bird watching.
Although Carol has her BS in Sociology from the University of Great Falls and spent half her life working in the health care and social work industries, her true passion lies in running the family farm. She is solely responsible for growing and harvesting crops and raising her flock of over 100 sheep, as well as taking care of goats, potbelly pigs, dogs, cats, and her horses (her family believes she's running a retirement home for old work horses). She’s a true Montanan at heart, with a deep appreciation for wide open spaces, wildlife, clean water and air, no traffic, and the friendly and helpful community. In her free time, Carol loves to garden and bird watch. She is happiest on the farm, taking care of her animals and enjoying the beauty of nature.
