A True Family Farm

When our boys help in the gardens they represent the fifth generation of the family to work the soil on Kimker Hill. Four generations still live on the farm today. Strong family bonds and a deep love and respect for the earth influence all of our farm practices.

Our gardens provide us with the best and purest of food, matchless beauty, and the ultimate earth science classroom for our homeschooled boys.

Sustainability is a popular buzz word among small scale agriculture. To us it means giving more than you take. Putting back what you use. Remembering that this beautiful earth will last forever and it's our commision to care for. In our gardens we try hard to follow these ideals and work with the earth's design, not against it.

It's a sunny day finally!

Yeah! The sun is finally out! We have had so much rain this past week. We are very happy we live on top of a hill. There is so much flooding going on near-by. The sunshine is putting us all in a better mood. The cats, dogs and chickens are all busy running around. I'm hoping the peas will pop out of the ground today, I'm ready to see green in the garden again!
