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.

First winter market of the year this Saturday!

Hi Everyone! Hope you're enjoying the new year and the sunshine today! We're busy getting ready for the market coming up this Saturday. It sounds like it's going to be cold but otherwise a nice day.

We hope as many as possible will be able to join us. I've heard from a couple of people already who need to stock up. I'll be bringing lots of freshly ground flours and plenty of healthy mixes. I'll also have my healthy muffins to tempt your tastebuds.

If there is anything in particular you'd like me to be sure to have enough of, or if you'd like to place an order in advance, just e-mail me today or tomorrow and I'll bring it with me. The address is drwissman@sbcglobal.net.

It's been a very eventful fall and winter so far and we have lots of pictures to share. We'll try to post some of them soon.
