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.

The beans have sprouted! It's taken a couple of plantings, but they are finally out of the ground. Just seeing the sprouts make me hungry for the beans. We are growing long stringless green beans as well as Chinese Long Red Noodle Beans. Both are tasty and I am ready to eat them. Too bad I'll have to wait for a while for them to produce.
