Erica and Zach Mallory own a small family farm in Eagle, Wisconsin.

Zach, a military veteran, was able to pursue his dream of starting the business with the support of a program called Homegrown by Heroes.

The Mallorys were recently contacted about providing food to a celebrity and his staff coming to Milwaukee.

Erica and Zach had to give a list of foods available for early February.

Much to their surprise, it was the team of Country music star Brantley Gilbert that was reaching out to the them.

Gilbert is scheduled to perform at Fiserv Forum on Feb. 8.

“It’s pretty awesome that a person like Brantley would find such a unique way to support farmers and veterans," said Zach.

“I think we both can’t believe that our little farm is getting considered to be a part of big things!” said Erica.

The two farmers are excited and hope to hear from the tour soon.

If they get selected, Erica and Zach will also get to attend Brantley’s concert and meet him.
