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.

Winter market this weekend! Hope you can join us!

This Saturday we will be at the St. Louis Community Farmers' Market in Tower Grove.  This will be the second winter market for the season.  Surprisingly, we will still have a limited amount of fresh produce.  Bonnie checked the hoophouse this afternoon and said she will be picking tomatoes, lettuce, swiss chard, bok choy, kale, green beans and fava beans tomorrow afternoon.

We will also be bringing handmade soaps and candles with us.  Danny has been making candles in wonderful scents that make the house smell amazing.  Come and check them out!

We are also working on gift baskets!  If you have a favorite product (or products) of ours you would like to see in a basket, please let us know!
