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.

March 21, 2013

Everthing has sprouted, I have hundreds of seedlings that now need to be transplanted.

 Danny & Zach & I have been working in the hoophouse. There is so much weeding & mulching to be done. We're also moving trellises so we can rotate crops. The greens are continuing to be harvested, as well as carrots, radishes & turnips. Danny's also been direct seeding new crops.

We're looking forward to the new marketing season. We'll be changing our schedule quite a bit this year. More info on that coming soon.
