When we say we're family-owned, we mean it. Kellie Brook Farm has been run by Tim Rocha and his children since 1992.
Tim Rocha grew up on a dairy farm in Chelmsford, MA. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1980. In 1992 Tim bought the farm and started growing vegetables. Then 1997 he decided to leave the corporate world and go back to farming full time.
When Tim isn't at the farm, he is fishing, hunting or watching football.
Tim is at the Portsmouth, Exeter, and the Winter Farmers' Markets.
Kellie Rocha was 2 years old when we bought the farm in 1992 and she loved helping her father pick vegetables. Kellie has been working on the farm since she was 8 years old. When she was 13 years old, she ran our farm stand at the Stratham Farmers' Market by herself and decided that she loved doing farmers markets.
Kellie graduated from the University of New Hampshire in May of 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and in May of 2018 graduated with a master’s in social work at the University of New Hampshire. Kellie is currently a therapist who specializes in working with children, adolescents and family therapy.
Kellie is at the Portsmouth and Winter Farmers' Markets.
Heath Gray has been helping out around the farm since 2016. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire in May of 2008 with a master’s in marriage and family therapy. In 2016, Heath left the therapy world for a more corporate job. Heath and Kellie are now married and plan on taking on more responsibilities at the farm as the years go by.
