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.

Market tomorrow!

It's been another crazy, busy week here on the farm. It is so hot! Danny has worked out in the heat all day. He's been working on getting the irrigation system in place for the summer. For me, today has been all about getting ready for the market.

I'll be bringing lots of eggs with me tomorrow, both from our chickens and from nearby Sunrise Farm. Plus, we have fresh produce again this week. We have kale, swiss chard, yellow squash, zucchini, new potatoes and green peppers.

Did you see the interview with Michael Pollan on the news yesterday? Take his advice and come and get your locally grown produce from us tomorrow! Bear will be coming with me, come by and say "Hi!"
