Fill in the blank:
A Wendell Berry Style Farmer
A bit about me:
I live on the farm that has been in our family for over six generations. Homesteaded during Marin VanBuren's administration, my roots run deep. Grandpa was considering selling off the family farm a few years ago, and I came up with the idea of starting a CSA as a way to save the farm.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Liver and onions (all home grown).
Currently reading:
The Gift of Good Land by Wendell Berry
Currently listening to:
J. S. Bach
My latest DIY project:
Growing Shitake and Portabella Mushrooms... and building hardwood bluebird houses from hardwood cut and milled from our land.
