Lotsa Milk

With two fresh cows in the line, we have a good supply of milk. If you want us to catch up on missed milk earlier this year, let us know how many extra jars you would like. It's a good time to make ice cream, butter, sour cream, etc. Sign up for more herd sha...

Planting and Growing Roofs

Shortly after we moved to this farm 5 years ago, we planted a single, garden-variety roof. Our skills at growing roofs were limited in those early days. The roof grew quickly in the Oregon winter rains, but our lack of experience stunted its g...
