Brayden has been fascinated with homesteading and farming from a young age. As an 11 year old one of his favorite pastimes was to read gardening books from the library. At 12, Brayden, along with his family, moved to a plain community where their neighbors lived off the land. There he learned the art of raising wagon loads of organic produce. Some of these wagons were carted off to market and some were heartily consumed by his large family. (Brayden is the first of 11 children).
While on the farm Brayden had a dramatic and life changing encounter with Yeshua. From that moment on he knew that this person he had learned about from the Bible was indeed as real and alive today as He was 2000 years ago. From the farm he joined his family in the giant leap to Israel to help establish the organization HaYovel. He served 14 years in this volunteer organization that helps farmers on the prophetic hillsides of Judea and Samaria. Through all these experiences God has placed in Brayden’s heart a desire to connect sustainable farming with night and day worship.
Brayden is married to Tali, an amazing and spirited woman who has given birth to 7 sweet children.

Keith’s agricultural career began at the age of 10 on his family's farm. Around 1980, Keith's dad decided to start the process of leaving traditional agriculture and move toward a reduced chemical and more sustainable nutrient way of farming. This led them through various changes and challenges in crop rotation, cover cropping, tillage, and even the usage of "biologicals."
The Montgomery family started Zone Products Company about the time Keith graduated from College. Since then Keith has worked for Zone Products in products development and production, and has started a cow/calf operation.
Boaz was born and raised homesteading and farming in different regions of the USA (Southern Oregon /Hawaii/Missouri/Kentucky) and grew up learning the things it took to care for plants and livestock in different climates. At age 14 he started picking up guitar and mandolin, and playing worship and gospel music. Around this time he started working on a construction crew with his father building pole barns and houses then going on to start his own construction business several years later.
