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.

New chicks in a new home!

Our new little chicks have outgrown their brooder.  Bear and Danny had to build them a new home this evening.  It should work for a little while, but they'll be flying out of it before long.  They're already getting their first real feathers.  I went out and took pictures a little while ago.

If it ever stops raining we're going to move all the chickens onto garden #5 for a while and let them fertilize it for us.  We're doing a lot of rotation this year within the gardens.
