Since 2014, Christine & Michael have developed their original 23 acres into a homestead-style farm with permaculture gardens, a hugelkultur orchard, chickens, bees, goats, and successional perennial polycultures. As the vision expanded to include the creation of more opportunities for others to make a meaningful change in our world, a contiguous 98 acre century farm came up for sale…
