Becky Burkett

Becky serves as the business manager of the family farm. Her vision is to provide her family and others with healthy, organically produced eggs, vegetables, fruits and pecans grown and harvested using sustainable methods. Her background includes previous sales and marketing management positions for a major advertising research provider and as a management consultant and corporate trainer focusing on leadership and personnel development.

A north Texas native, Becky grew up in the Rockwall, Texas area, moving there as a child from Dallas. Her parents were successful business owners, primarily in real estate development and custom home building. Becky graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Music degree and went on to get her Master’s Degree from the University of Memphis in a music interdisciplinary degree program. She thought she would become the next Carole King but that didn’t happen! It’s all good though because through it all she met and married her husband of 34 years, has two wonderful kids – Shannon, married and an event planner, and Benjamin, a 17 year old 12th grader – and a variety of dogs and chickens.

Besides managing the business side of the farm activities, Becky is active off the farm teaching management and leadership classes through a local college and managing residential rental properties. This love for education has led to be on the Executive Board of the Rockwall ISD Education Foundation, Inc. where she serves as Treasurer. She is the former vice chair of the Heath Park Board serving the community through effective management of the city’s parks and trails. She is also the Secretary of the Rockwall County Open Space Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, where she, along with other like minded individuals and representatives from the various cities in Rockwall County, work to ensure that open spaces in Rockwall County are left in natural states wherever possible to encourage enjoyment and education in our natural world.  Becky’s passion with the farm activities is with raising chickens in an organically safe way producing eggs that are more nutrient rich and healthful.
