Dave & Tracey of Meyer's Homegrown Popcorn
Dave and Tracy Meyer have built their farming business to what is today through the support and guidance of their family and a local community that has truly embraced their homegrown products. The couple enjoys and loves raising their three children on their farm in Boston, NY. They use it as a way to teach the kids about hard work and dedication. The whole family is often in the fields together or working on processing popcorn for customers together.
Dave Meyer is a fifth generation farmer, growing up on his family’s dairy farm that has been in continuous operation since 1855. Dave always had a passion for growing and selling local produce as he grew up helping his mother with her sweet corn stand that she successfully managed for over 45 years. After college, Dave took over his mother’s sweet corn stand and he added pumpkins as his second main crop. In 2010, when Dave married Tracy Brown, the two partnered up not just in life, but also in the farming business!
Over the next few years, demand for their farm fresh produce continuously grew. They established the LLC and added on 5 more stands. Tracy quit her job as a Special Education teacher to focus on raising their three small children and continue to grow the family business. Dave is employed full time off of the farm, but spends evenings and weekends with Tracy on the farm.
