Feeding your family is a big responsibility and one that we take very seriously. We want to meet you and develop a relationship so that you can truly know who is responsible for your food. Here is a little about the folks that help make it happen at Broadview Ranch.
For most of you Rebecca will be the face of Broadview Ranch. She will manage all the sales and marketing efforts. She grew up in the stone house on the farm and graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Biology. Rebecca worked as a territory manager for a nation-wide wholesaler/distributor before taking on her current role at Broadview. Rebecca is the daughter of Alan, neice of Carol, and cousin of Lee and Josh. If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns, contacting Rebecca is a great place to start. You can contact here at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bryn manages the production activities on the farm. He is the guy that makes sure that the animals have everything they need to live a happy healthy life. Bryn studied agroecology and sustainable development at Appalachian State University. He spent time working at several farms around the country before finding a home at Broadview. Bryn is the nephew of Carol, and the cousin of Lee. You can contact him at email@example.com.
Alan currently manages the day to day running of the farm. It is his animal husbandry skills that raise healthy happy animals. Alan has a degree in agriculture from Virginia Tech. He lives in the old stone house on the farm, just like his grandparents did. He is the father of Rebecca, the brother of Carol, the uncle of Lee and Josh. You can contact him at Tilsons@broadviewranch.com.
Carol manages the equine facilities on the farm as well as offering a helping hand where ever it is needed. Carol’s fields of specialty are natural horsemanship and natural stockmanship. Carol grew up on Broadview, developing a deep-seated connection with the land and the animals on it by riding hours everyday with her grandfather, Tex Tilson. Carol is the sister of Alan, the mother of Lee and Laura, and the aunt of Rebecca, Bryn, and Josh. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lee grew up on the farm loving the mountains, the woods, and being with his family. After graduating from Virginia Tech Lee found himself in Richmond pining for the farm. Realizing a kindred spirit in his cousin Josh, Lee and Josh led the family in incorporating Broadview Ranch to further the interests of the farm and demonstrate the importance of sustainable, local, ethical food production. Lee currently manages the operational duties of the farm and, after moving from Richmond to Roanoke with his wife and daughter, now hosts the Roanoke pickup location. Lee enjoys working with his mom Carol, his uncle Alan, and cousins Rebecca, Bryn, and Josh in continuing the legacy of the farm and caring for the land. You can contact him at email@example.com.
Josh Grizzle grew up in Houston but spent his summers working and playing at the farm. In 2008 while working in finance in New York, Josh partnered with Lee to establish Broadview Farm in its current form. He currently serves as treasurer of Broadview Farm and is responsible for the financial aspects of the company. Josh is the nephew of Alan and Carol and the cousin of Lee and Rebecca. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
