COMMUNITY/FAMILY FARMS & BUSINESS:

   * Inarguably my perspective & contribution...

Since before this fish farm's origins in 1987-- Rural Culture and Family Farms were
at the heart of my search for a desired lifestyle and way to make a living...


             "I was like a lost dog scrapping to find its way home..."

At this same time-period the number of traditional family farms was on the decline...
In spite of this-- I chose to resist the absurd and homogenizing effects of modern times...
Accusations pointing toward folly and nostalgia only served to temper this rural vision...
           

            "We tend to surrender away... what we don't realize we have."

It is assuring when many good folks unwittingly come to common conclusions…
There was a resurgence of small farms across the countryside- Many new faces and
some not… Outward appearances may have changed yet the heart of it all remained…

            

            "It was as if we were adopting babies from the bath water..."

Three decades, more and less, now gone by… Mission toting farmers of passion strive onward… To each their own— Farm longevity has been every which way… Measuring
sticks that of adventurers… And adverse social circumstances remain stubborn…

.
            “It is often more difficult to come up with the question than the answer...”

What is the promise of "Community/Family Farms" for our up-and-coming generations?

This question's theme has ever been at the heart of our farm’s vision and mission...         

Camaraderie has been realized with other lifestyle/locally based businesses…
And where many common meanings and purposes are so desired
and pursued...


                     "I've done what I do best and learning from all the rest..."
