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.

Tomorrow is the official Opening Day at the Tower Grove Farmers' Market. It runs from 8 am to noon.

We have been busily preparing for the past two weeks. All the greens are producing abundantly! We are bringing lots of kale, spinach, rainbow swiss chard, a variety of lettuces and even some herbs, as well as assorted radishes.

I have also been preparing plenty of freshly ground flours and healthy mixes.

Did you get a sample of my Gluten-Free Multi Grain Bread at our last market? I will be sampling again tomorrow. I have baked more loaves this time, but it sold out quickly last time. If you miss out, you can still get the mixes to make it at home.

Hope to see you tomorrow! It looks like the weather will be perfect.
