This is us!! Honestly, I wanted to post a cute picture of us all dressed up to introduce ourselves, but I think this is the best I'll get for now anyway. 😳 Our names are Shaun and Ashley Leonard. We are high school sweethearts and celebrated 15 years of marriage in July and 22 years together. 🥰 We have 3 beautiful children. Wyatt is 13, Paisley is 8, and Maysa is 1. We are originally from a very small town called Karval on the Eastern Plains of Colorado. We both grew up farming and ranching in Karval and moved back there after college. We had many titles in Karval such as farmer, volunteer Fire Department Chief, EMT, truck driver, fertilizer plant owner/manager, feed store owner, teacher, coach, athletic director, and VB official. We had always talked about moving to Texas, so we made the big move in 2014. We moved to Midland, TX and Shaun was a paid firefighter/EMT. We started missing the farm life and started searching for a place closer to home. We found an 80 acre farm with a house and big shop 6 miles west of Canyon, TX and moved here in 2015. We also purchased 30 acres of farm ground that was next to us. In 2017, we installed drip irrigation on 40 acres and planted alfalfa. Of course it was a dry year so had a hard time getting it to come up. We have planted milo, sorghum and triticale on all our dryland and have had more failed crops than successful crops throughout the years. Shaun and I were talking one night about how we used to get a group of friends together and drive near the city to go through a big corn maze and even a haunted one and how much fun it was. Then he said, "we should do a big corn maze and pumpkin patch on our irrigation!" So here we are learning the ropes on something new! We planted 15 acres of pumpkins, 5 acres of sunflowers and a 20 acre corn maze. We also plan to have some other activities but we really wanted to target a big corn maze and pumpkin patch! And of course we have goals to grow bigger and hopefully get that haunted maze also. And more equipment to help with this kind of operation! We are nervous, scared and excited for this new adventure and would really appreciate some prayers and your support this fall!🙏🏼 🥰
