Meet The Farm-ily

Farm-ily? Yes, you read that correctly. "What's a farm-ily?" you may be asking yourself. At Pickwick Place, we are like a family, but instead of being related by blood, we're united by a common passion for farming and a love of the land. We're a farm-ily.

Greg and Rose Hartschuh

Greg and Rose met initially through their high school involvement in the FFA organization. Later, their paths crossed again as students at The Ohio State University, where they were both pursuing degrees in agriculture. The rest, as they say, is history. Greg manages crops and equipment on his family’s dairy farm. Rose taught high school agriculture for five years before stepping away from the classroom to raise their twin boys. Dwight and Jordan are four. She and Laura work together closely behind the scenes for The Loft.

Kent and Laura Stuckey

Kent grew up in Sheridan, Indiana where his family owned and operated Stuckey Farm Market, a large orchard with u-pick vegetables. Kent and Laura met in Haiti, a trip Laura took while attending Taylor University. After getting married, Kent and Laura settled for a time in Indiana before joining Laura’s family farm in Bucyrus. They have three boys, Ben (23), Zach (22), and Ethan (18.) Kent manages the Pfeifer Dairy, a 500 cow farm. Laura is a former Wynford elementary teacher and now oversees all of the small details that keep The Pickwick Place running smoothly. 

Ethan Stuckey

Ethan is a graduate of Wynford High School. Ethan has been working on the family dairy for as long as he can remember. He is very passionate about farming and agriculture. He initially got the idea to plant an orchard and grow vegetables a few years ago. Since then, he has been busy researching and learning as much as he can about different production methods and plant varieties. He is excited to be in charge of all the produce at Pickwick Place, and he can’t wait to see you this summer!

Chris and Andrea Schimpf

Chris is a fourth generation farmer in the Bloomville area and Andrea grew up in Bucyrus. They met in church youth group and went on to attend and graduate from Taylor University in Upland, IN. After getting married, Chris continued farming with his family, raising nursery hogs for Hord Livestock, and started his own cut flower farm called Eyestone Flower Farm. Chris and Andrea sold flowers for 12 years at farmer's markets. Andrea is currently a library media specialist at Seneca East Local Schools. They have two girls. Jolie is 7 and will be going to third grade at Seneca East. Emilia is 5 and will go to Kindergarten at Seneca East. You will often catch the Schimpfs at The Market!
