Drew Wood served in the Air Force during the Gulf War. After returning from his military service and spending years searching for a career, Drew revisited his interest and passion in fresh food and farming.

Drew and his partner Katie, now own and operate Shady Grove Farm in Berryville, Arkansas. They raise heritage poultry, including chickens, turkeys and ducks. Drew cannot imagine what could “be more rewarding than providing good, wholesome food to family, friends and neighbors.”

As a Bon Appétit Good Food Fellow through the Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund, Drew purchased poultry-raising and processing equipment to grow their operation. Drew Wood is a passionate farmer, friend, and businessman. His continued hard work shines through in Shady Grove Farm’s success.
