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.

This morning, I got up a bit earlier than usual, but not as early as Rog - he had an early morning meeting. I was just settling in to sip my coffee before chores when Rog called me up from his cell phone on his way into town - he said, “Go out and look at the moon!” I bundled up and grabbed my camera - and found it glowing above the horizon as I came around to the north side of the house - it is now almost as far north as it gets.
The December full moon is called the Full Cold Moon or the Full Long Night’s Moon. Long nights is right. Four more days until winter solstice, and then the days start getting longer!

I quickly did the chores, then came in just in time to see the sun rising through the dining room window.
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.
