Small is beautiful and bountiful!

Shannon and I have been blogging about life on the farm for the last couple weeks and will continue to do so over the summer.   It is a way to share our little lives with folks who are learning to farm, want to learn more about farming because they are thinking about buying some acreage, or merely enjoy watching us farm from the comfort of home!  So, keep checking back to see what is happening at Fish Farms and Red Barn Farm!

In addition to looking on our farming exploits, this summer you have the chance to visit a couple local farms and learn more about what they are doing!  Our HOT SUMMER NIGHTS Farm walks explore the diversity and possibilities for farming on small parcels of land.  If you have ever wondered how much can be done on three acres or less (in some cases MUCH less) this is your chance to find out.  Join us and learn about raising livestock and produce sustainably and small!  Perfect for those individuals wanting to explore the potential for their little piece of heaven.
