Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Hwy. 290 traffic and new development in Cypress, Whitehurst Heritage Farms sits on 100 acres of pasture and wooded land, unbeknownst to most who drive past.
Leslie and Michael Marchand have owned and operated the farm off Grant Road since early 2014.
"I got tired of sitting in traffic on Hwy. 290 and sitting in an office, and I just wanted to do something different," he said. "I grew up in a small town, so [farming] is kind of in my blood."
