Bruce grew up on a dairy farm so farming is in his blood. He trained in soil microbiology with the Soil Foodweb and soil chemistry and plant nutrition with Neal Kinsey from USA and from that developed the Soilsmith nutrient program. This program has been fine tuned in the years since based on soil and plant response.
Shelly worked as a high school mathematics teacher for 17 years and recently stepped away from the classroom to concentrate on working with Soilsmith and running her farm. She collaborates with Bruce and Bernard in the development of new tools within the Soilsmith software to improve functionality and ease of use.
She has particular interests in growing vegetables and equine health and nutrition.
Bernard has worked in the Information Technology industry for 25+ years. He has worked in a diverse range of fields from configuration management, development and testing of software. Through his diverse experience he was able to devise the means to develop the algorithms for the Soilsmith applications.
