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.

August 16, 2012
The gardens are looking much better now. A friend has been helping us to get rid of lots of weeds. If we get rain tomorrow, we'll start digging potatoes on Friday and then we'll be bringing some of them to the market on Saturday. It's been months since we've gotten any new potatoes because of the extreme heat and lack of rain.
