Trina and her husband Todd are the local farmers lovingly restoring the family farmhouse and committed to raising hearty livestock including beef and pork. Trina was having health issues and heard about the benefits of the Paleo diet. She adopted the Paleo style and quickly saw positive results: more energy, lower blood pressure, arthritis relief, and weight loss. She says, “I love to eat, and had to change my focus from living to eat, to a truly powerful way of cooking and eating that supports my wellness and the kind of life I wanted for myself and my family.” It truly has been a lifestyle change, not just a diet.
