New Happenings

Matt and his wife Emily pulled up their nearly two decades long Chicago roots in November 2020 and transplanted their 1/8 acre urban farm onto 12 beautiful acres in the foothills of San Jose where they now run a farm animal rescue organization, Rancho Roben Rescues, a fiscally sponsored 501c3 non-profit project of Chappy and Friends.

As part of his work for the farm animal rescue organization, Matt recently spoke to the Mid-Peninsula Widows & Widowers Association about his life and the mission of their farm.
