Triple Creek Farm

Matt Poore always knew he wanted to be a farmer. Growing up, Matt and his six siblings helped out on their parents’ farm in Virgilina, Virginia. Even after the family moved to Flagstaff, Arizona, Henry and Nina Poole brought their children back to Virginia to work on the tobacco crop every summer. Those early experiences of working outdoors sparked Matt’s interest in becoming a farmer and he went on to earn a degree in animal science at the University of Arizona, where he met his future wife, Jeanette. After graduation, Matt says, all he wanted to do was go back to the farm and “make it work.”
