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.

We'll be at the Tower Grove Farmers' Market tomorrow morning!

I forgot to say, we have lots of free-range eggs we will be bringing tomorrow as well.  The  eggs are a pretty mix of colors and spots.

Tomorrow is our first preseason market at the Tower Grove Park. The weather has really helped us out with our preparations.
We are bringing lots of beautiful rainbow swiss chard. We also have several varieties of kale, spinach, and an assortment of spring lettuces and radishes.

In addition, I will be bringing the new mixes, Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Mix and Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Bread Mix. I also have 4 loaves of Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Bread freshly baked and ready to enjoy. I will be sampling it tomorrow, stop by & give it a try!

Hope to see you there! It's from 8:00am to noon. Here's a link:

New Babies!

We're having a very busy week!! Our first outdoor farmers' market is tomorrow. We've been making lots of preparations!
We also have baby chicks hatching again. They're so cute to watch!
Nate managed to catch the first one as it hatched. We thought we'd share the video.


Look how creative Danny is, he just finished a new, larger brooder for the chicks! They are almost 2 weeks old and were way too crowded in their brooder box.

We woke up this morning to an "escapee" chick out of the brooder.   Now they are all in a new brooder box with taller sides!

Here are some pictures of them during the past week

The incubator is half empty now, the brooder box is filling up! 6 chicks hatched during the night & 3 more this morning. Another one looks like it should pop out any time now.
