PASA field day!

This Thursday we will host a PASA (Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture) field day here on the farm. Last October we hosted a field day here, and then in February Homer spoke at a couple of sessions at the conference...it is good to think about presenting what is done here, how to explain and demonstrate all that we do, and why.

Farming with as little equipment as possible, adding and improving each year as we can afford to do so, without a tractor or rototiller or, most importantly, taking on much debt, are all really important aspects of what we do.

We have no desire to grow big. We love the idea of farms like this in cities all over the country, as well as in the country. On Thursday Homer will talk about his ideas, and how he has implemented, ways to grow and transport vegetables. And maybe a little about his $30,000 house, living mortgage free, enjoying sunshine in the wintertime and eating the best food...ever...

So our big room is cleaned up. Emptied. The floor washed, junk that accumulates sorted, pitched, recycled, freecycled. And ready for visitors!
