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.

After a long morning of vending at the Farmers Market yesterday, Brendan got home, unloaded everything and then relaxed by...making pickles.
For his first foray into pickling, he made classic dill pickles.
The cucumbers, dill and garlic came from our garden. After brining the pickles, they were packed into mason jars,
then processed in a hot water bath. We ate the first pickles with supper last night, but we were so enjoying them I forgot to take a photo. They tasted great and looked picture-perfect -- exactly like the photo in the cookbook above.
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.
