We are Hope & Daryl Stogryn. We've lived at Rising Sun Farm in the rolling hills of Northumberland County Ontario since 2001. Rising Sun is a 100 acre farm with a few chickens, cats, two dogs, three sheep, and several thousand Christmas trees. Daryl & Hope have been actively involved in youth ministry both locally and internationally for many years. Hope is a full-time Grandma, farm manager, crafter, and cookie-baker. Daryl's office as Director of Global Engagement for YFC/Canada is located in our home as well.
