Our philosophy is to continue to hold this land in the most pristene state possible. We have about three acres set aside for our homestead, gardens and pasture. The rest of the land remains wild. As a result, we enjoy an astonishing array of bees and other insects as well as native bears, heron, ducks, hawks, turkey, deer and more. And we collect wild mint, chickory root, blueberries, mustard seed, hickory nuts, maple sap, bulrush, rose hips, cherries, and, of course, blackberries.

Is total organic living a challenge? Definitely. We collect and compost our livestock manure and vegetable leftovers as our only fertilizer. It's terrific stuff! We check every vine and leaf of many crops several times per week for pests and disease. The results are truly worth it.਀㰀椀洀最 猀爀挀㴀∀椀洀愀最攀猀⼀瘀攀最椀攀猀   ㌀⸀樀瀀最∀ 眀椀搀琀栀㴀∀㌀  ∀ 栀攀椀最栀琀㴀∀㈀㐀 ∀ 愀氀椀最渀㴀∀氀攀昀琀∀ 洀愀爀最椀渀㴀∀㄀ 瀀砀∀ 栀猀瀀愀挀攀㴀∀㌀㔀∀ 瘀猀瀀愀挀攀㴀∀㄀㔀∀ 戀漀爀搀攀爀㴀∀㔀∀⼀㸀㰀⼀瀀㸀 ਀㰀瀀㸀䔀瘀攀渀琀甀愀氀氀礀Ⰰ 眀攀✀搀 氀椀欀攀 琀漀 瀀爀漀瘀椀搀攀 愀 瘀椀爀琀甀愀氀 琀漀甀爀 漀昀 漀甀爀 搀愀礀 琀漀 搀愀礀 氀椀昀攀 猀漀 礀漀甀 挀愀渀 愀瀀瀀爀攀挀椀愀琀攀 琀栀攀 搀攀琀愀椀氀猀⸀ 䘀漀爀 渀漀眀Ⰰ 琀栀漀甀最栀Ⰰ 眀攀 栀愀瘀攀 琀栀攀 猀琀漀爀礀 漀昀 栀漀眀 䘀爀攀搀 愀渀搀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 戀甀椀氀琀 甀瀀 漀甀爀 昀愀爀洀 猀漀 昀愀爀⸀ 䈀攀氀漀眀 椀猀 琀栀攀 猀氀椀搀攀 猀栀漀眀 眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 栀椀最栀氀椀最栀琀猀⸀ 䔀渀樀漀礀℀㰀⼀瀀㸀 ਀㰀⼀戀爀㸀
