As a kid, Justin would trail ride his cousin's horse, in the early summer mornings, around his family's farm. As a teenager, Chelsea competed in stadium jumping with her larger-than-life gelding.
Justin and Chelsea Francis have now been married for nearly 20 years, and have three children. They live on a small hobby farm, with their menagerie of goats, ducks, chickens, cats, and dogs. Their three horses live at the family's boarding facility, next door to the future site of the Tasting Room.
