July 15 2017update:

We now have four belgians which work the fields. We are looking forward to moving the oil pressing to the farm in october of 2017. This year we have grown camelina, sunflowers, hemp and spelt. the spelt is for the horses and dorothees bread making.

On Sept 15 2015 we will be purchasing our farm. Unfortunately it is not organic yet so there will be a few years of transition with no chemicals being used. The farm otherwise is perfect for our operations where we expect to grow sunflowers, camelina and hemp. Eventurally we will move the oil pressing there too.

There is 50 acres. 35 or so for crops. about 9 a woodlot and the rest across the road with a pond and stream with trees.
