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 purchase a farm and name it 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.
Reason for Loan
As they continue to bolster the foundation of True Livin’ Farms, Troy and Renee now have a farm stand in addition to traveling to farmers’ markets and offering CSA pickups. Troy is looking for investment in True Livin' Farms for working capital to expand production in 2020 including a pick-your-own berry production enterprise to add to his fresh fruit offerings. Join Troy and Renee as they grow their farm business!
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.
