True Livin’ may be a new venture, but it’s a product of family heritage. Troy Bounds’ grandfather was a cotton farmer and his dad was also involved in agriculture, truck farming off and on throughout his life. After finishing school, Troy decided to follow in their footsteps. Before Troy and Renee were married, Troy had already been market farming for several years. Together the couple decided to name their new farm venture True Livin’ Farms, because, as Troy explains, “when you’re truly doing what you love to do for a living, that makes it True Livin’.” Troy manages the farm while Renee works as a full-time nurse and helps Troy as much as she can. As their farm business grows, Renee would ultimately like to transition to working the land with Troy.
In late winter 2019 we traveled to Norman, Oklahoma and spent a day with Troy to see his farm fields and infrastructure and learn more about his markets. We were most impressed with his knowledge accumulated from decades of growing vegetables in Central, OK.
