Chuck and Cynthia Dilbone

Chuck and Cynthia's interest in healthy eating, cooking, and sustainable living played a huge part in the creation of Sunbeam Family Farm. 

Cynthia is a retired elementary school teacher, spending 37 rewarding years in the classroom.  Her health conscious lifestyle and extensive knowledge on whole foods and homeopathic medicine helped her make a seamless transition into organic farming.  She especially enjoys working the Saturday/Tuesday Granville Markets as well as the indoor winter market - ask her for new recipe ideas.

Chuck is also a retired educator, serving most of his 39 years in education as a high school principal.  During his time with the Granville Schools he pioneered a school lunch program that features healthy, fresh, and local food.  Chuck can often be found in the kitchen preserving the farm's bounty through canning, pickling and fermenting.
