How'd we get the name?
Long story short, we have an inside joke about jackalopes and so I bought a shirt that had one on it. I was wearing it one day and after discussing the business idea with my friend, she looked at my shirt and suggested something with jackalope in the name. I decided on Jack-A-Lope Acres and we couldn't be more excited to bring this dream to life!
Luke was born in Jackson, Wyoming and raised in Pinedale, Wyoming. He started out farming, haying and taking care of cows. He practically took his first steps in the hay field and hasn't left the agricultural life since. His father taught him how to work hard (sometimes non-stop) and his mother taught him respect and the value of caring for others. He is currently working as the Farm Manager for a large scale farm in Ignacio, Colorado and has been given some great opportunities.
Kristen was born and raised in Cortez, Colorado. She was born to an entrepreneur and has learned the hardships of business ownership but also the great rewards it can offer. She gained an outstanding work ethic and has been gifted the traits of an entrepreneur from her father and the creative mind from her mother. She is currently working on her 7th year at a local pipeline construction company.
Our Life Together
Together, we have been together for nearly 8 years, married 5 years and have a beautiful daughter named Tyler Jane. We will celebrate her 1st birthday in early March. In 2020, Luke started his new job and we were welcomed with open arms from everyone around. We are blessed to be able to raise our family in such a beautiful area with fresh air plenty of space and around people who genuinely care for our success and well-being. We have been blessed enough to have supportive family and friends that will allow us to serve our community with the chance to make everlasting memories in the same place we are able to make them.
