    Formerly the 1920s homestead of what was a larger property, the garden’s soil is ideal yet many years of bermuda grass have left it nutrient poor and compacted so we’re enjoying building back its health. Yesteryear’s tired barbed wire taken down, tight and square fencing going up?

    The improved land is half cover crops, vegetables, berries, and fruit trees with other half for goats, donkeys, chickens, geese, ducks, and rabbits with ~12 bee hives inbetween. Our practices are based on some great books I’ll share on permaculture and I like to think nearing biodynamic farming.

    The natural environment here is something special. We pinch ourselves regularly in disbelief to be its stewards. It pokes and bites us back so we’re quite sure this isn’t entirely a dream. Two sides of our triangular property are connecting wet creeks in the Western Cross Timbers ecoregion of Texas. The property has operated as one of the original beneficiaries of the Texas county tax appraisal exemption based on wildlife management. Our land use is now agricultural specific to bees but we voluntarily follow a wildlife mgmt plan in addition. We continue to foster the reclaimed prairie’s native diversity. Multiple forest paths have been selectively cleared and welcomed guests may explore.

    Guests stay in a 1968 Airstream Land Yacht Trade Wind 24D with 2 full beds/sofas and bathroom. A tipi is available too if interested.

    We eat organic whenever possible. Two of the three of us are gluten, semi-dairy and soy-free so we’re understanding in accommodation to others’ diets.

    Our farm is a few miles south of Weatherford, Texas and 30 minutes west of Fort Worth, Dallas is 1 hr 15 minutes, Austin is 3 hours, Mexican border is 6 hours, New Orleans is 8 hours, Santa Fe/Taos is 10 hours, Denver is 12 hours

    Pleasant farm conversation with native Texans. Or domestic livestock and wildlife chit chat if preferred.

    Opportunities abound. All things gardening, rainwater collection, drip, swales, bee hives, beneficials, pests, domestic animals, fostering wildlife, tractor breaking, tractor fixing, building of fence, barn and other structures, including bringing back to life the farm’s 1930’s era flagstone swimming hole for the surrounding area. Originally spring creek-fed but dam long busted and feeder pipe tight with sediment we’ve opted for an acequia*️️️️️️-inspired system to capture surface runoff along a long slope that includes our garden. Now, beyond entertainment and wildlife it is on its way to do its part in an open aquaponics system.

    *️️️️️️acequia -An acequia (Spanish: [aˈθekja]) or séquia (Valencian: [ˈsɛkia]) is a community-operated watercourse used in Spain and former Spanish colonies in the Americas for irrigation. Particularly in Spain, the Andes, northern Mexico, and the modern-day American Southwest, acequias are usually historically engineered canals that carry snow runoff or river water to distant fields. It can also refer to the long central pool in a Moorish garden, such as the Generalife in the Alhambra in Southern Iberia.
