Looking back we had some successes, some failures, made some new friends, but most importantly for us, we found our own place! Our journey into farming started about 4 years ago and as we searched for a place to live and farm it landed us on an 80 acre farm as caretakers. After about 2 years at The Totten Farm, Agrestic Acres popped up on the horizon and we were able to make the dream happen. We moved here in September 2015 and it was the perfect time of the year to transition. We were nearing the end of the season and so we have time to move, settle, do projects to prepare for next year and adapt to this new role as farmer owners.
We look forward to 2016 and a new market season. Hopefully we will meet new farmer friends, new customers and fulfill our dream of living on a working, sustainable, pasture based farm. We still do our wonderful pastured eggs, but we have added beef, pork, poultry, lamb and we are almost finished building our aquaponics high tunnel. We will use this high tunnel to sustain ourselves and help with the vegetable side of things as well. The high tunnel will produce hydroponic vegetables and act as a seed start facility for those vegetables we will plant in the ground.
We really look forward to seeing what this wonderful farm can produce and sharing that with our customers, family and friends. The support of our customers, family and friends means the world to us. Thank you!
