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.

June 20,2012
The gardens are looking great despite the lack of rain. Danny or I are watering something everyday. This past week we picked the first ripe tomatoes and cucumbers. There's nothing better than a vine ripened heirloom tomato. We've been picking and eating as we're working in the gardens.
