Dana Thatcher
Founder at Barn Swallow Fields


I’m a lover of all things antique and floral, I am an avid reader of anything business and entrepreneurial related and I love coffee and a good gin and tonic equally. My husband inspires me daily, he can build, fix and do just about anything. My three children are the loves of my life. Getting to work and farm alongside my family has been such a gift.

Growing up in a small town, farm life was new to me. While I always loved good food and being in the country, it wasn’t until I met my husband that I realized my love and passion for agriculture.
