Everything Starts with a Dream

I dream of having a farm in the mountains on the East Coast.  It has good soil but if it doesn't we'll make it good.  There's abundant water and we supplement that with clean rain water.  There are seasons with which we plant and live by.  Spring for renewing, summer for hard work, fall for preparing, and winter for rest.  We grow organically with the goal of providing the best possible food at a price everyone can afford.

 It's a family place.  A place were we build a home and raise a family.  A place were our family converges to celebrate all that life has.  A place were our parents can come and rest and be with us as we raise the next generation.  Several generations live together and are good stewards of the land.  The wildlife is abundant, we'll make sure of that.  The land will be better after us - not before us.  

I dream of days working outside and watching what we've built grow over the years.  A sustainable business that improves the community.  Creating community is what the farm does.  It will bring people together and, over time, teach others.  

I dream of fruits and vegetables, nut trees, bees, chickens, pigs, ducks, geese, horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, and ponds filled with fish.  To everyday bare witness to the cycle of life and death.  To watch nature at its finest.
