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.

Hope to see you at the market in the morning!

We're just about to pack it in for the night.  Danny has been picking since the early afternoon.  Bonnie has been picking for hours and Colin and the kids came to help too.  We got the very first new potatoes this afternoon and the kids had fun picking them up and carrying them inside.

The gardens are bountiful right now.  Besides new potatoes, we will be bringing Rainbow Swiss Chard, several varieties of kale, a spicy greens mix, baby bok choy, beet greens, red leaf lettuce, fava beans and snow peas.  We will also be bringing a few dozen eggs, so be fast if you want them.
