The Free Lance-Star Photography Department shares the stories behind the photos.
Following a 21 career in the USMC, Brian and Kim Criley decided to begin their own business called Slow Grown in Virginia. On their farm, they use the principle of nature to grow their vegetables, cultivate their pastures and raise their livestock. The couple, and their six children, live and work side by side daily while Brian and Kim also homeschool the children.
