We began in 2009 with fall box gardens to provide fresh, healthy produce for our family. The soil needed enriching, and chicken compost was the natural choice. Soon the age old question of which came first was answered. It was chickens, then eggs, lots of eggs. Then, after the first fresh roasted chicken, we were hooked.
Soon the chickens out produced the box gardens. The solution: take the farm outside the boxes. Six miles of drip line later, we now grow over 50 varieties of pumpkin (eating & carving), 8 types of tomatoes, 3 types of watermelon, 3 types of cantaloupe, honeydew, sweet corn, Indian corn, popping corn, peas, squash, broccoli, beans, carrots, sunflower seeds, and boysenberries.
Everything we produce is fresh and healthy. Our goal is to follow nature’s way whenever possible by avoiding chemicals, pesticides, and artificial shortcuts.
