Shae Pesek grew up on her family’s farm in Coggon, Iowa, where she and Anna farm today. She has been raising cattle and crops the majority of her life. Growing up Shae was heavily involved in 4-H and FFA. She showed goats, sheep, and rabbits that she continued to raise for over 20 years. Shae went to San Diego State University where she majored in Women’s Studies and was President of her queer-based sorority for two years. Shae continues to work with her family on the farm, as well as grow Over the Moon with Anna.

Anna moved to Iowa from the east coast in early 2016 after graduating college and doing a brief stint working in a big city. After visiting her friend Carmen Black’s farm in Solon, Iowa, a few times, she realized she wanted to stay for longer than a visit. She lived and worked at Local Harvest CSA for almost three years with Carmen and Maja Black who she considers to be her Iowa family, farming mentors, friends, & collaborators. Prior to her time in Iowa, Anna studied agriculture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she was involved in the student run vegetable farm and the local food community. Her passion for agriculture grew from hearing stories about her grandparents’ former apple orchard in Northern California and from developing a close relationship to local dairy farmers near the town she grew up in. Anna now lives in Ryan, Iowa with Shae and is thrilled to be putting down roots in the place she has been so lucky to call home these past few years.
