A small, diverse permaculture farm in beautiful SE Minnesota - our dream come true life focused on Local Food, Local Art, Local Music.

The big freezer is nearly empty as families pick up their Thanksgiving turkeys. This afternoon. Maynard and Kris and their two delightful granddaughters got their turkey and several other feast ingredients from our farm: chard, honey, and sugar pie pumpkins.
The girls were a bit scared of the chickens and dogs, but loved the cows (maybe because they were behind a gate.) After checking out the chicken coop and the barn, they were curious about who lives in this little house.
Such cuties! They keep their grandparents on their toes!
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.
