Homer runs Sunnyside Farm, a pasture based farm in south central PA. This is the farm blog, written by the farmer's wife, Dru.

With temperatures at night in the 40's predicted for the upcoming week, it is time to close the hoophouse back up. Homer removed the rain barrels, added the plastic sides and will (as time allows) plant carrots inside and add the rain barrels as water/heat retention for the winter months. Tons of tomato plants inside. Along with the guinea hens, who we hope are eating their weight in horn worms!
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.
