Our Story

We have just started this farm last year and are off to a good start.  We currently have 24 hens with another 30 expected in June, and 6 ducks with another 15 in June, and finally 12 Guinea hens to arrive in mid May.  We planted 30 fruit trees (apple, pear, peach, nectarine, pluot, and cherry) last year and 6 citrus trees this year (lemon, lime, blood orange, and mandarin orange).  We also have 8 grape vines (Thompson seedless green, and Lodi flame red) along with 8 blueberry bushes and coming next week Raspberry bushes!  This is the first year that we have planted rows of watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew, not to mention the normal vegetable garden, which is also bigger this year. This fall we will try pumpkins for the first time.  Each year we try to expand and grow, for example this year we are raising 2 FFA pigs for the fair!
