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.

September 12, 2012
The yard and gardens are looking greener everyday. I'm so thankful for the rain that we've gotten recently. The gardens are beginning to reward us again for all the hard work this summer.

We were finally able to harvest potatoes after the first rain. They taste wonderful. We've been eating potatoes almost everyday for the past 2 weeks. So far we've had them mashed, baked, scalloped and yes...terday, pressure-cooked with a roast and carrots. Tomorrow it's supposed to cool off, so we're planning on potato soup. If you missed out getting some of them for yourself last Saturday, don't miss out this weekend. We have 5 different varieties, all organically-grown, in assorted sizes. Come pick out your favorite at the Tower Grove Farmers' Market this Saturday. We're open from 8am to noon.
