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.

July 25, 2012
Will this heat ever end? We have been crunching our way all over the farm. Danny's watering what he can, but there's no way to water everything. The gardens look like an oasis in a sea of dead grass.

Danny crunched his way out to check on the bees several times this week. The hive is thriving, but we've had to start feeding them again due to the lack of rain. There's very little blooming for them to collect from. I sure hope we get some of the rain the weatherman says is a possibility for tomorrow!!!!
