Molly Nakahara, Paul Glowaski and Cooper Funk found each other as members of the 2006 apprenticeship class at UC Santa Cruz’s Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems. After years of dreaming and seeking, the three founded Dinner Bell Farm in 2010. Fueled by the generosity and love of their friends and families, Molly, Paul and Cooper are building a food production farm into the diverse and beautiful ecosystems of 30 acres of land nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
In 2013, following the birth of his first child, Cooper and his partner Marina headed East to begin a farm in Marina’s home town of Camden, Maine. Cooper will forever be a part of Dinner Bell Farm and though we miss him and his family dearly, we are excited for the next chapter in the Funk-Sideris adventure!
