Our interns from Denmark, Mark and Jakob, have been building a structure that will house future interns and a composting toilet. It faces due south, will be filled in with straw bales and roofed with a continuous coil of copper tubing..that will help heat water and the space. All a theory right now! Built with timbers salvaged from houses being dismantled in Baltimore, estimated to be 200 years old.
I am the lucky woman who gets to be the farmer's wife to Homer Walden, the hardworking, creative and innovative force behind Sunnyside Farm. The farm is a pasture based intensive grazed farm in Dover, PA. We grow heirloom, open pollinated vegetables, chicken, eggs from heritage breed chickens, beef, heirloom breed turkeys for Thanksgiving and pork with no commercial feed, honey, eggs, Buff ducks. And the occasional flower or 2.
