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

The American Planning Association is holding their Upper Midwest Planners conference in Rochester this week, and our farm was one of the mobile tour stops. About 30 people arrived on the trolley. We talked about our permaculture approach to farming, community connections, agripreneurial ventures, and how it all fits with the County and Township planning departments. Then we showed everyone the gardens, animals and a few farm project highlights.
Happily, the rain held off until just after the trolley departed. Thanks for visiting, APA!
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.
