Sharon Carson

Sharon was born in the small town of Lester, West Virginia. She is the middle child of nine children born to Otis and Sadie Cooper. Her parents worked hard to provide for their children. Her father was a coal miner and her mother was a factory worker. While growing up in the mountains on five acres of land, she enjoyed being outside with the beautiful flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, and spectacular view of the town. Her parents grew their own food in two large gardens along with countless fruit trees. Having fresh fruits and vegetables was a normal way of life. The memories of helping her mother preserve food for the winter months and seeing the beauty of nature always stayed with Sharon.

She served in the United States Army and retired with over 20 years of military service. During her military career, she had tours of duty in Germany, South Korea, Lebanon, Iraq and various regions throughout the United States. While serving her country, she raised three wonderful children.

The birth of R.O.S.E. (Rose of Sharon Estate) Farm was started in April 2015, when Sharon purchased 87 acres of land in the beautiful Gloucester, Virginia. Although the land had been vacant for over 20 years and needed much work, it was the beginning of Sharon’s vision to recreate her lifelong dream from childhood. The property was equipped with the beginning of a farm, which included a large barn, a chicken coop, a smokehouse, and many other features. The transformation of the property has been a labor of love for her entire family.


R.O.S.E. Farm is a place where people learn the value of real food. Food that their great-great-grandparents would recognize. The connection between the Creator and the Earth reminds us of the role nature plays in our physical, mental, and spiritual health. R.O.S.E. Farm is about getting back to the basics for overall health and wellness and we ask all those with an interest or passion to join us in this movement. 

“We Blossom Together.”
