The Farm:

Still Waters Farm is an historic farm operated by Marv and Peg Adam since 1993. Our products are; grass-fed beef, eggs from pastured chickens, and Certified Naturally Grown blueberries. We are currently developing red raspberry and elderberry crops. 


Mission:

We purpose to provide high quality, local products using sustainable and natural methods, thereby creating a peaceful, healthy, and safe place to live and visit. 


History:

Our farm is the remaining 22 acres of the originally larger farm owned by Gibbs Community Doctor Marian Jenkins. He served the medical needs of the people of the Gibbs area from his country office located beside the home and farm. HIs office still stands, along with the barn, gargae, chicken coop, and craftsman style farm house. We intend to keep the atmosphere of the farm as similar to that of the early twentith century as possible. 

Farmer Bios:

Peggy Adam grew up on a farm in Nebraska. She spent her childhood raising prize winning sheep, beef and dairy cattle for 4-H, helping with sheep sheering (a three day event that allowed her to skip school), driving the tractor during haying season, and learning to bring cows and ewes bring their young into the world. Farm life was healthy, character building, and taught her much about God's creation. Peggy went on to receive a Master's degree in Zoology from Ohio State University, homeschooled their two daughters and now uses her skills to operate Still Waters Farm along with her husband Marv.

Marv Adam grew up in an airforce family, therefore spending his childhood in several different locations. As teenager in Kansas, he worked on various farms in the fields and putting up hay in between football practice.  He received a Masters in Geological Engineering from Missouri School of Mines - Rolla. Rola, Missouri is the location of his Grandparents farm that brings fond childhood memories of tending the garden with his grandpa Valentine. He currently owns Capstone Enterprises a mining consulting firm. In his spare time, Marv fixes and engineers all of the many, many things that need fixing or creating on the farm from, large irrigation systems to new fences to simple latches that work.
