Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed 

A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,...

Okay, so not quite like that.

Over the years we were blessed with six wonderful daughters. John and I made the decision for me to be a stay at home mom and homeschool our children. With that decision came many blessing as well as challenges. In order to put food on the table we learned to grow our own food as well as preserve it in various forms.

We started farming this land 16 years ago when the girls were small. They have done everything from growing pumpkins and tomatoes to raising chickens, cows and bunnies. As the girls got older they started helping with that task. When they were old enough to go to summer camp they planted extra in the garden to sell at the farmers market so they had the money to go. 

As the girls interests changed so did the farm. Some of them loved being outdoors and working with the animals that have come and gone over the years. Some of them became very involved with the garden and have spent hours looking at seed catalogs and doing research to find just the right variety of seed. As some of them got older we added baked goods to what we produce for the farmers' markets. Now, as they are going off to college, getting married, and having children, things are changing again. We are down to just two farmers' markets a week during the summer but are adding more activities at the farm. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with what's happening during the year.
