Butte's Bethel is managed by two great friends, Jen Garner and Kelee Eklund. Jen and her husband, Chris, own and live on the property, and neighbors Kelee and her family manage the day to day operations.
Jen and Chris Garner are wildlife biologists with a love of the outdoors, growing good food, and all creatures great and small (okay, horses and dogs most of all). Jen and Chris have conducted research on most Alaska's larger wildlife- moose, brown and black bear, wolverine, wolves, and Cook Inlet beluga whales!
Kelee and her family live just a few farms down. They grow their own food, raise chickens, goats, and beef cattle. They also keep bees, and a friendly horse and cute donkey, Daisy!
Both families love to grow our own food, ride horses, and enjoy the Last Frontier!
