Who We Are

Farmer Robert

Meet the Farmer.

Hello there. I’m Robert, the farmer here at Goodlife Farm. I am married to my wife of 30+ years, Beth. Together we have 5 grown daughters, their significant others, and 6 (so far!) grandkids. I have been a grower my entire life. For the past 11 or so years, I have operated the Goodlife Farm here in Waynesville, growing and selling produce for the farmers market & now for our Farm Club.

A little more about me.

  • In my “spare time” I restore old tractors.
  • I am a Ford person.
  • The grandkids lovingly refer to me as Paby (PAH-BEE) or Pab for short.
  • I have a slight obsession with daylilies.

Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food.

I know we say that quite a bit around here, but it is one of our driving principals.

We know it is important to you to know where your food comes from.

You want to know how it was grown and feel good about what you are eating.

The average person doesn’t know a farmer, yet alone the actual farmer who is growing the food on their table.

We want to change that.

Reconnecting you to the farmer.

At Goodlife Farm we understand wanting to know the hand that feeds you.

We focus on the farm to customer relationship just as much as we do the products we sell.

Our Farm Club is a way for you to learn the story behind your food. To really build a connection to the farm.

We want to help you feel assured that your food dollars are supporting a local farmer who’s committed to helping feed your family responsibly.

Get to know your farmer so you can know your food.
