 Started in 2006 by Dani Baker and David Belding.

Our Vision is to build an ecologically, economically, and socially sustainable farm, diversified in plant and animal life, that provides us with a reasonable living, our community with healthy, wholesome food, the environment with a good neighbor, and provides educational opportunities for as many people as possible about how to produce organic, sustainable, local, healthy food.  We also want to be able to have this vision and this farm continue long after we are gone.
