Sustainability is an integral part of our life and goals. We derive a lot of satisfaction from knowing that we can provide for ourselves. We appreciate the value of raising our children with an understanding of where our food and other life sustaining resources come from. Whether it be the wood we burn, the animals we raise, the vegetables we grow, or the soil we build, all contribute to our sense of connectedness to the earth. It’s important to us to know where our food comes from, how the goods we need are created, and the energy and considerations that go into it all.
As we witness global changes, it becomes increasingly important to continue with a lifestyle that enables us to become less dependent on resources outside of our own farm and community. We continually strive for a more efficient and highly sustainable lifestyle.
We’ve made a conscious decision to live this way and while it’s not always easy, it is always rewarding. We are happy to share what we’ve learned, and this site is another way we can do this. We welcome your insights and questions.
