Dylan Strike, Owner
DYLAN was raised in Pinedale, Wyoming and spent the majority of his childhood exploring the surrounding mountains, with a snowboard on his feet in the winter and a pack on his back in the summer.
After finishing high school and generally causing trouble in Pinedale he moved to Bozeman to gain an education at Montana State University and to continue getting into the mountains, though not necessarily in that order. Although drawn to Bozeman for the mountains, Dylan ended up finding the Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems degree program, from which he graduated with a degree in Agroecology.
During his time at MSU Dylan had the chance to become involved with the local food community in Bozeman; first through an internship at Towne’s Harvest Garden, MSU’s student farm, then through the process of creating a local food documentary called Bozeman Eats, and eventually as a Farm Manager at Three Hearts Farm. Heartened by his experiences with all of those involved in the local food system, from producer to consumer, and seeing the apparent need for more local food production Dylan decided to stay in Bozeman and start a farm of his own. When not at the farm you’ll find Dylan making powder turns at Bridger Bowl or trail running and mountain biking the beautiful trails around Bozeman.
Megan Randall, Greenhouse Manager/Crew Leader
MEGAN grew up in a small town in Western Massachusetts. As a kid she spent a lot of time outdoors, and still finds that she is her happiest when she's out in the fresh air. Megan went to college in Pennsylvania where she studied Environmental Anthropology and Spanish. After she graduated, Megan moved back to Massachusetts and started working at Red Fire Farm, a sprawling organic farm in the Pioneer Valley. Farming was not what she planned for herself after college, but she thought it would be a fun job for a couple of months. Megan quickly fell in love with the work, and five years later she's still at it! After spending three years at Red Fire, Megan decided she wanted to try living somewhere new, so in 2016 she packed her bags and moved to Montana. Megan spent two years working at Two Bear Farm in Whitefish and recently moved to Bozeman to work at Strike.
Megan loves farming for many reasons. She loves how tangible the work is, and that it's new every day. She loves the magic of seeing a seed turn into a plant that turns into wholesome food. But more than anything, Megan just loves the joy of being outside. If she's not on the farm, Megan is probably hiking, trail running, or making a mess in her kitchen.
