Sherman residents have voted in favor of Full Circle Farming to take over the lease at Happy Acres Farm. During a vote on Saturday, residents voted 452 in favor, 264 opposed.
John Motsinger and Adam Mantzaris plan to continue raising grass-fed beef while slowly improving management practices, diversifying the number of crops that are grown and the business as a whole. They said in their proposal that the pair hope to restore the farm's financial health, enhance its environmental sustainability and create a central hub for community engagement.
Sherman owns the 90-acre property and will enter into a five year lease with the tenants.
