Grandpa bought a beutiful slice (75 acres) of Burl Holler for $500 back in the day! He and granny raised their 5 children, and always a stragler, in a small 700 square ft house. No running water or electricity! Wash the clothes on Monday and everyone takes a bath in the creek on Saturday (just in time for church).
Farming in those days was self sustaining. They grew their own vegetables (stored them for winter too), had their own milk cows, slaughtered their own pigs and the chickens truly free ranged.
Now as I inherit this land, I'm bringing the family farm back! Once again, we'll live off the land producing all natural vegetables, grass fed beef, free range eggs and chicken meat and maybe one day some patured pork and goat milk.
We aren't just using the farm for ourselves and customers, we're giving much of the goodness away to local poor as a way of expressing our love to God and people. We're much more than a farm. We believe in family business, we live and work this land as a community and we use the farm and its produce to help those in need.
