Cody Brown was born and raised in the desert plains of west Texas and eventually migrated to the live oak hills of central Texas where he pursued an education in agriculture. This is where his passion for soil health and regenerative agriculture developed and eventually blossomed into small farm ownership in 2020—Growtopia Farms. He and his family and live on the farm with their two dogs where they feel blessed to live deliberately everyday through farming.
