Tom Thiltgen wanted to be a farmer.

While living in Virginia Beach, Virginia, he longed for a slower pace of life in the countryside where he could live off of the land with his wife and four children.

So, they moved; but his picturesque dreams took a very different turn after moving to the Mountain State.

Eventually, the family found themselves in Calhoun County, where their three acres of land were too steep to farm on. Rather than acres of corn and tomatoes, Thiltgen found himself growing trays of tiny, tender, edible greens, called "microgreens."
