The sustainable approach to clean, pure foods is critical to the survival of the whole farm and ranch, including the apiary and, vermiculture systems. They are important to the ecological system. The utilization of water-wise methods also helps preserve precious resources. I  grow enough to protect the rotational, heirloom food supply and encourage natural pastures. 

The heirloom gardens, orchard and, pastures here are seasonal. Production is limited to zone appropriate vegetation for the benefit of our family,  livestock, honey bees and, beneficial insects. With each season, a new set of crops grow along side indigenous, wild, native vegetation. I've been saving and, rotating seeds for decades. Originally, the seeds were provided by my Mom. Her personal, rotational seed bank was started back in the 1950's. 

Rotational pastures, heirloom gardens, fields of indigenous vegetation,  living fodder systems, orchard and the practice of excellent stewardship makes resting in between each harvest more approachable. All fertilizer, manure tea, compost, mulch, plant and, soil-food comes from my farm. This ensures that all our organics are 100% pesticide-free and, drug-free. 

It's not always easy and it's not always pretty but, it's worth it. Dennis is the best at growing crops. He's a magician. I don't have a green thumb and I struggle. I'm so impressed by people who effortlessly grow spectacular crops. It brings me so much joy. Nancy is an amazing producer of delicious, heirloom crops too! She is a blessing. Thank goodness she shares her bounty with our family, friends and farm members. 

I'm much more comfortable with raising livestock, butchering meat and doing the livestock related chores. I think it's important to keep going and keep trying. Plus, It's fun too!
