Its only the beginning

My farm has a name as you can see. Now its on to actually getting some animals, a garden, an orchard, etc. This year will be a slower year, we are only going to get 50 hens, and work on establishing garden beds, with a fence, to keep out deer! Next year I hope to aquire 100 more chickens, and have a good garden growing. I have gotten a really positive response, from a small local group I am in, and hopefully their thoughts are echoed through the farmers market as well.

I have lots of things to post, but the last month has been pretty intense, plus spring has finally sprung here, and we’ve been spending lots of time outdoors.

About lisser

My name is Alyssa. I live with my husband and 2 young boys on our farm in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I have been in the planning to launch a small scale farm from our acreage for the last 2 years. Much to my excitement 2010 brings the start of my dream to fruition. We are starting small, but will continue to grow as a valuable local food source in our community. We are an unschooling, attachment parenting family, with a love for the outdoors, and a passion for sustainable farming. I am a stay (and now work) at home mom. I enjoy reading, sewing, cooking/baking, canning and photography.
