Tyler Waterman is the founder and farmer of Laughing Mother Farm. He has been farming professionally for 6 growing seasons. He got his start in Arcata, CA selling produce at the local farmer’s market and eventually worked his way into wholesale accounts and restaurant sales. Tyler was born and raised in Calaveras county and graduated from Bret Harte in 2009. After high school he made his way up north to Arcata, CA to Humboldt State University where he received his B.S. Degree in Environmental Management and Protection. Here he began his career as a farmer and also developed his skills and knowledge of carpentry and forestry.
Tyler’s passion for environmental protection is a driving force behind his career as a farmer, carpenter, and forester. In the fall of 2015, Tyler had the unique opportunity to combine these passions when he decided to move Laughing Mother Farm to Brice Station.
Now, he works alongside and in collaboration with the Brice Station family and is actively farming 2.5 acres of vegetables, hops, and fruit. In June of 2017 the farm began its first year of CSA (a weekly box of produce to local community members). Along with farming Tyler also provides farm fresh meals for all concerts held at Brice Station Vineyards.
