“We joined the Land Stewardship Project's ‘Farm Beginnings’ program in 2007. Through the program's bi-weekly meetings and customized mentorship with an established farm family, we studied the mechanics of running a farm. Many of our classmates have started successful enterprises in our region and remain a vital network for ideas, problem-solving, and inspiration.
“We're proud that our pastures are now certified organic, and we're believers in the tenets of holistic management—that the health of the farmer and his or her land and animals are intertwined. We spend hours cultivating relationships with buyers, processing and packing orders, ironing out our bookkeeping, and developing still more plans for future infrastructure and efficiencies. It's endless work, but each day is a little different and that keeps the challenge fresh.”
