Landowner Spotlight: Larissa & Jonathan Ullberg

Larissa, Jonathan, & Demrie Ullberg

Larissa and Jonathan Ullberg moved to their current farm with big dreams. They wanted property and enough space for their kids to play, to grow their own food, and to be able to raise horses too. However, making their dreams a reality was initially very daunting and overwhelming before they reached out to Whatcom CD for help.
