Real farm skills and stories

We are a small family farm raising goats for milk and using the milk to create artisanal goats milk soap to sell at farmers market. We have a market garden; growing vegetables and flowers using inputs from our farm, microbe inoculations, and minimal soil disturbance. We homeschool our kids and enjoy sharing with others about our farm. Ask us questions about what you hear...We are the farmers. As always your input is important. Let us know what you want to hear about and we will do our best to add it to the show!
