Farming Status and Plans

Less than 2

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

My partner and I operated a homestead farm for ~1.5 years in Azalea, OR. We maintained an extensive home garden, took care of various livestock (chickens, sheep, beef herd, dairy cow, meat turkeys/birds, and large berkshire pigs), and replanted trees in our forests. We left Oregon because of the imminent threat of wildfire and are looking to rebuild in New York. We're big believers in the importance of soil health, slow food, and honoring planet earth with every decision we make in our lives.
