Matt is the owner/innkeeper of Netherfield Natural Farm in Fontana with his husband, Scott. Their company, Netherfield Natural Farm, LLC, is currently in an expansion project to open another lodging property at 8 East Kaskaskia Street in Paola, Netherfield Inn.

Since moving to Kansas 8 years ago, he and Scott have had the pleasure of enjoying the fresh air, clear skies, and friendly community here.
