Raleigh and Blakslee Masters live and work in the beautiful Sugarloaf Valley of Luzerne County. Raleigh spends his days on the 2,000 acre grain & potato farm that has been owned and operated by his wife’s family for four generations. Raleigh & Blakslee are proud to call the farm ‘home’ and are even prouder to raise their two sons on the land and take part in the transition of it to another generation. In addition to farming, Blakslee runs a small horse boarding business and the couple operate two distinct locations on the property for AirBNB rentals which helps to introduce many guests over the course of the year to a day in the life of a farm family. Raleigh is passionate about many things, including precision agriculture, welding, and river kayaking. Blakslee is, of course, passionate about horses, environmental stewardship and fostering great relationships with people near and far.
