We have an organic farm. We have a wide variety of animals. At the moment we have goats, cattle, a donkey, and chickens. We have 3 gardens, fruit trees, herb plots, and are expanding. We have approximately 70 acres/29 hectares that we are working on getting cleared, fenced, and workable. We milk the goats and play with the babies that aren't sold. We are close to North Bend State Park and the Rail Trail. Excellent for hiking, biking, camping, etc. The Hughes River is a mile away. It is not deep in some parts but it flows into a lake for fishing. During the spring, we can show how to pick and choose the right heirloom seeds, how to raise all sorts of babies, and start your own seedlings. During the summer, we pick our own legal herbs and I make my own herbals that I can show how to make those as well. During the fall, I can show people how to can, dry and store the food we raised on the farm including our own seeds. During early winter we are butchering and figuring out what we want to work on come spring. I will help anyone learn how to crochet, sew by hand, make herbal salves, oils, teas, etc. We like to go fishing, hiking, camping, and cooking7 grandkids here quite a bit.
These pictures include one of my ex-son-in-law helping hold one of the triplets born on our farm spring of 2012.
