In 1973, Jasper John Roth began a family farm on the crossroads of 1200 E and 100 N Road in the wide open fields of Ford County, Illinois. His son, John joined him in running operations in the year 1987, beginning his son, a then six year old Tim Roth, on a life of fresh air, chasing cows, and bringing in crops. Tim pursued a successful career in IT for 17 years while raising his family, but he always carried a dream of returning to a life on the farm. In 2015, Tim began preparations to return to the farm by attending conferences and classes to educate himself in all the best methods of holistic farming, regenerative agriculture, organic practices, ethical animal husbandry, and so much more. In 2018, dreams began to be realized as Tim’s family moved into the original farmhouse in order to take a more active role in farm management. In the middle of 2020, Living Light Farms was officially born, and in April of 2021, Tim was finally able to fully transition away from his IT position to being full time on the farm. And the adventure continues!
