September is a great time to start growing food! We’re planting lots of things for fall and harvesting our summer crops!
Our animals here at the farm are for more than just the cuddles (although they’re great for that too!). Each of them serves a purpose in helping us transform our acreage into a food farm!
This video talks about why we made sure llamas were the first animal we added when we moved to our new homestead and started building our farm!
Strawberries are one of our favorite things to grow! The sweetness and flavor in home-grown strawberries simply can’t be beaten! They’re easy to grow and will come back year after year and continue to spread. Strawberries are one of the few plants that we don’t even attempt to grow from seed. It takes up to three years for a plant to produce fruit, so it’s generally better to buy transplants from the nursery instead of starting from seed.
