In August of 2000 Kimberly and I decided we were going to buy a farm in 5 years to raise our children on and developwellness workshops and retreats. In 2003 we had our first child and in 2005 we bought a farm and had our second child. It took us 2 years and a lot of help to get the farm house into a livable condition so in 2007 we moved to the farm.
From there we started learning truths about how most food is produced and how some small scale farmers were producing food for their local communities. We chosethe small scale local community route.
The fundamental principle for our animal husbandry practice is that animals should be raised outside, on pasture, utilizing rotational grazing to keep both the animals and pastures healthy. We are constantly striving to be healthy physically, mentally, economically and in our relationships. Especially in the relationships with our children which was much of the reason for moving here.
Since we began raising animals for other people we have expanded and contracted trying to find a way to meet our needs, and be true to our goals.
So the journey continues…
