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.

Grass-Fed Beef available soon!

Sir Loin of Beef, The Duke of Hamburger and Secretary of Steak are all about to live up to their names.  They are all being "processed" and will be ready for pickup next week. 

We are looking forward to enjoying our very first Kimker Hill Farm raised, grass (& tomato)-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, beef.  If you would like to enjoy some too, I will know prices soon.  You can e-mail me if you'd like to be on the list of buyers.

We'll be back at the market this weekend with lots of heirloom tomatoes!

We're back from vacation.  We had a great time!

We came home to lots of ripe and ripening tomatoes!  I've been busy preserving as many of them as I can this week.  Bonnie says I will have lots more to take to market on Saturday.  Come and stock up for yourself!  It's really easy to freeze them.  Just core and quarter and place in a ziploc freezer bag.  Squeeze out as much air as you can, then close and place in freezer.  You just take out what you need, as you need them, all winter long.

Get them before they're gone!

Hope to see you Saturday!  Don't forget, you can now use your credit or debit card.
