Since moving onto our one and a half acre homestead in 2017, we have added dual-purpose chickens, honeybees, and perennial foods!
- 10-20 Egg and Meat Chickens
- 2+ Honeybee Hives
- 20+ Perennial Herbs
- 10+ perennial bushes and fruit trees
- 5,000 square foot annual garden
Our goal is to design a farm for optimal use with positive environmental impact. Future goals include installing better irrigation and water collection/filtration systems, as well as a small greenhouse.
Recycling and reducing our waste is important to us. Instead of relying on synthetic fertilizers, we prefer to use natural fertilizers like compost and animal wastes. We use natural forms of pest-control to combat threats to our family’s food production.
We attempt to companion plant together in ways that the plants can compliment and support each other as this is very restorative to the natural environment and increases biodiversity.
Please contact us to schedule a farm visit or to see our body product workshop now under construction!

What Is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems.
The term "permaculture" was coined by Bill Mollison in the 1970's. Mollison created the term when trying to describe the fact that any permanent human settlement needs to rely on a sustainable agriculture system for their environment.
