Owner & Operations Manager
I am currently still running my landscaping business, all while managing the farm operations, and trying to figure out what to do with all of Deanna’s crazy ideas! I enjoy hunting, the outdoors and I hardly ever meet a stranger. I love my family, the Lord and enjoy traveling and spending quality time together. We decided to start this journey together along with our daughter, Maleah, and many friends. I hope you will come out to see us and have some fun making memories on the farm!
Owner & Office Manager
I graduated from New Hope High School and am happily married to my husband, John Manley. We have one daughter, Maleah, and lots of pets! I enjoy decorating, creating, and crafting whether that be teaching art, decorating for events, or junkin’ and upcyclin’…..you name it and I have probably tried it. I love music, singing, and serving the Lord. I am a homeschool mom and enjoy volunteering my time as Landmark Academy’s National Beta Club Sponsor. I have always loved children, community, and family. I am so excited to start this new journey with my family!
Event Planner & Coordinator
Two words…...Chaos Coordinator. I’ve been happily married for 25 years to a man who is truly my best friend. The chaos that comes along with an entrepreneur and three children ages 20, 17, and 8 always keeps me going. I love starting new adventures, especially when they start with lots of chaos!!! That way, I can create and execute a plan to organize the chaos. When Deanna asked me to be the Event Planner for JDM Family Farm, I knew it was a fit for me. She and I have been friends for over 20 years, and she is definitely the brains to any project we have worked on in the past. However, she needs a CHAOS coordinator for sure!
Caterer & Sheeney's Manager
Charlene has lived in this area for over 40 years and enjoy the small-town life, baking, and entertaining! Her life revolves around faith, family, and church, and she cherishes all time spent with loved ones, and is the aunt of the farm's owner. Several years ago, while being employed as a nanny, the children nicknamed her Sheeney, and we think this is the perfect name for our Concessions Building. Charlene will be operating Sheeney’s and we hope you will come and join us for some homemade sweet treats, snacks, and breads while on the farm.
