Anton Shannon

Owner, Good Work Farm (Zionsville, PA)
Anton Shannon

Anton took part in our new farmer training program in our inaugural year (2010) and went on to start Good Work Farm in 2011. Of his first year running a farm, Anton said, “All of the things that capital lenders are looking for are things the Seed Farm is helping us achieve: a proven business history, paying bills, marketing our crops, tracking our yields and our sales, exploring market potential, managing labor and time, coming up with production plans and production contingencies. The Seed Farm is providing GWF with a living laboratory for us to test our production and sales techniques with scalable resource access. Our farm made a net profit in a year that included a drought, a hurricane, prolonged flooding, and October snowfall. That very may well have finished off our new farm, if not for The Seed Farm.”

Good Work Farm has continued to grow and thrive in the years since its launch. Anton and his partner, Lisa Miskelly, successfully transitioned off The Seed Farm's site in early 2014 and are now operating a CSA right down the road, in Zionsville, PA.
