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.

Fall Farm Festivities
Saturday was a couple days past the equinox, but that's when we celebrated it. After days of rain and flooding, the weather cleared just in time so we could party on the patio. It was a clear, crisp evening. We arranged for a spectacular moonrise during our potluck dinner, nearly full and glowing red.
There were lots of musicians among our guests--members of Blue Monk and Nodding Wild Onions (two bands Rog plays in) and members of the songwriters group. Various musicians jammed all night in new combinations--here, Phil (Nodding Wild Onions) belts out a song with Paul (songwriters) drumming and Joe (Fiddlers and Company) on mandolin.
Sparks from the fire scribbled lines in the photo.
I even sang in public! The world premier of my cow-milking song, "LaFonda Let Your Milk Flow Down" was well received ( nobody threw tomatoes.)
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.
