Joe purchased Springstone Farm in May 2012. He started a local honey and egg business and began to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted and neglected animals.
Before retiring in 2016, Joe specialized in connectivity and emergency communications, traveling internationally to bring digital solutions to poor and marginalized communities. He ran projects in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana and Haiti. Joe had the opportunity to stay in refugee camps, visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Green Belt Movement and camp on the Maasai Mara. These experiences influenced Joe's decision to buy the farm and use it for animal rescue, conservation and assistingnext generation organic farmers. This land was made for you and me!
