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.

Try my new recipe!

Denise's Grilled Chicken, Split Pea & Spinach Soup

Begin with 1 package of Kimker Hill Farm Yellow Split Peas.  
Put entire package into a stock pot & rinse well.  Then cover with about 10 cups water.
Add about 1 tablespoon granulated garlic, a sprinkle of italian seasoning, 2 teaspoons lemon juice
& 1 teaspoon salt.
Begin cooking on medium-high heat.
Chop 2 large onions & 2 stalks celery, then add to soup.
When it comes to a low boil, reduce heat to low & let simmer about 1 hour.
Add more water if necessary during cooking.
About 10 minutes before serving, add:
One grilled chicken breast cut into small pieces & 1/2 pound chopped fresh spinach.
Turn off heat & cover, allow it to remain on the hot burner until ready to serve.

It got rave reviews from my family this evening.  I served it with my Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Bread.

You can get the Kimker Hill Farm Yellow Split Peas, the fresh spinach & my Gluten-Free Multi-Grain Bread 
(already baked or the mix to bake yourself) from us at the next market!
