A small, diverse permaculture farm (and now, Bakery!) in beautiful SE Minnesota - our dream come true life focused on Local Food, Local Art, Local Music.

Another really fun thing to do on a hot, muggy day is bake 48 loaves of sourdough bread in a wood-fired oven. First you build a big fire and let the thick oven walls heat up to 500 degrees. Then you pull out the fire.
If you are adept, you can fit 6 loaves in at once. You have to be careful not to brush the oven with your arm or you will get a nasty burn. Don't ask how we know.
A few of the finished loaves ready for the Farmers Market tomorrow morning. This bread is so delicious! Rog has a pretty devoted following of sourdough bread-lovers - he must not disappoint his fans!
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
