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! Come join us!

We'll be at the St. Louis Community Farmers' Market tomorrow from 9am to 1pm. 

We're bringing all the usual items.  We have lots of bright, beautiful veges.  The Rainbow Swiss Chard and all the different varieties of Kale are loving this weather and the lack of bugs and are growing like crazy.  They both taste so wonderful we've been eating them almost everyday. I've been combining them together and adding chopped onions, seasalt and a little butter.  Mmmmmmmm delicious!  Get some for yourself tomorrow!

I also finally decided to let everyone try my Gluten-Free Mixed-Grain Flour.  We've been cooking gluten-free now for a couple of months and I had to come up with a good flour mix.  After lots of requests, I'm bringing some for others to try tomorrow.  I'll be waiting for comments and suggestions.

We will also have our Kimker Hill Farm raised, grass (& tomato)-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, beef again.  If you missed it last month, you have another chance tomorrow.  It's available for a limited time, it will be a while before we raise more.

Danny will have his candles, I'll have handmade soap, freshly-ground flours, mixes, grains, jellies, jams, gift baskets and more! 

Hope to see you!
