We are Richard & Helen Doyle, former farmers, proud parents of 3 and grandparents of 7, and expect to see a few of their faces at the markets as well as in our photographs that we share!
Richard loves working with timber expect to see some of his handy work designs at a market nearby soon.
Helen is usually behind the camera and undertaking the social media updates as well as the bookwork. She loves to sew and cook and garden when she gets the chance. Helen will be offering embroidered items for sale as well as taking orders for monogramming and custom orders.
Oliver and Amelia, (our grandkids), are our no.1 helpers. Oliver loves all things sport and working out how things work, while Amelia loves to help out at the markets and is our creative designer behind Cow Pow going pink. In hindsight, we think it was a good decision as we certainly stand out!
Then we have Cooper (grandson), the hardest working 6-year-old we know, who is always ready to lend a hand, and the best bag stacker in the business.
We then have our 2 youngest granddaughters, Mackenzie and Billie, who love to help, especially trying to carry a bag between them to stack on the trailer.
Last but not least, are our 2 youngest grandsons, Harrison, who loves to tell his grandfather which bags need stitching and Max who loves nothing better than climbing on the bags as they are stacked!
We were introduced to COW POW from a post by Lou on our local Facebook Group, New England Gardeners. She was sharing the secret ingredient for her amazing pumpkin crop was COW POW. We then decided to try some on our own wicking veggie gardens and lawn. We too were amazed and so when the opportunity arose, we decided to purchase the business and as they say, the rest is history.
Richard will be the one that you see day to day when he retires from his day to day job. Helen will be more behind the scenes as she works full time as a Careers Adviser at a local school. We would love you to share your garden stories with us, especially if they involve the wonderful magic ingredient, COW POW.
