Make a REAL difference…Gluten Hates Me Style

Sometimes in life you are lucky enough to meet extraordinary people. People who make you smile when you just think their name. People who spread happiness and joy to their friends and family, while working their hardest to make a small corner of the world a better place.

Mike Slaton is one of those people.

I met Mike when I worked at Tidal Creek Food Co-op. He’s a shy, soft spoken guy at first, but get to know him and you’ll have the pleasure of hearing his booming laugh. And if you’ve ever lived in Wilmington, then you may have had the HUGE pleasure of hearing this man sing.

Since his days in Mike Slaton and the Wheels, Mike has been working his a** off learning, apprenticing, and growing in the organic food world. And if you think farming isn’t hard work…then wake up before dawn and work until sunset in the North Carolina sun in the middle of July.

After years of working for others, Mike and his partner have decided to start a farm of their own. Well, why don’t I just let him tell you himself!

Imagine helping a real person achieve their dreams. This is tangible stuff people!
