A Dream Come True...
Well, at least for Stephanie! Native San Jose residents Jorge and Stephanie Rocha and their two children moved to bucolic San Martin in February 2018 to pursue Stephanie's childhood dream of owning a farm. The dream began a few decades earlier when, as a little girl, Stephanie leaped with her friends from one heaping dirt pile to the next behind an old rustic barn tucked in the east hills of San Jose. Horses grazed in the distance. It was quiet. Open. Fresh. Everything about the setting felt right. Smelled right. A feeling of pure joy overcame her. This was her essence, and where she wanted to be.
That feeling of pure joy would repeat itself on various occasions through her life. The common thread was always the farm.
Today, the dream has manifested into The Nest Box, where the peaceful country setting and Stephanie's love for birds, sheep and gardening intersect.
While we have not yet quit our "day jobs," you will find us working on the farm on most weekends. Our mission is to work the farm and open it to you so that you too can experience that feeling of pure joy.
