Tim Stockel (Farmer Tim) has been the owner and operator of Happy Day Farm since 2012.
Farmer Tim always had a love for agriculture and all things outdoors.
He was raised in Manalapan and is the youngest of 5 siblings. Early on, Tim was business minded and had an entrepreneurial spirit.
As a junior in High School, he started his own landscaping business.
What started as simply cutting lawns, quickly evolved into full service landscape design and hardscape.
Farmer Tim enjoyed the ability to create, transform and inspire others with his work.
Farmer Tim married his wife Olivia in 1999 and soon after, his daughter Trinity was born.
One day, Tim and his 2-year old daughter Trinity took a ride to the local hardware store where they purchased pumpkin seeds and planted them on a small section of his 7-acre landscape property.
The pumpkins grew successfully and the Stockel family took photos in their mini patch and shared their crop with friends.
