  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three in the house, including a one year old boy, to go along with a bevy of barnyard friends outside. We have an organic farm, a heritage restoration supply business, and an eco focused retail store. This occupies all of our waking hours. We're spread too thin, and need all kinds of help - particularly at the farm. The farm is very much a revival project, bringing it back to life as a functioning family farm. All the while, we try to enjoy our little slice of paradise. Good food is central to our way of life, as is living a life that is more aligned with nature.
