Can you believe it has already been a year since we bought our farm? With so much still to do, I didn’t realized just how much we accomplished this year.
We got our gardens going, and opened our shop and farm stand. We had several projects going all summer and we even took time to beautify the yard. We also added to our family by adopting 2 more dogs, cocker spaniels of course.
We are a small farm at just over 2 acres, but we have many plans to make this a working farm again. Our house has a rich history in farming, and we hope to recreate a good part of that. For a bit of the history visit Cloverleaf Farm.
People flocked to our farm stand for our organic produce. Next year we plan on expanding the garden to 4 x the size it was today. It was a wonderful first season.
Our herb and gift shop is one of a kind in the region, so people come from all over. We have been selling on line for years, but this year we changed our name to fit our farm name. You can check out herbal products at Cloverleaf Farm Store. The name actually comes from the shape of our property. The farm was originally close to 100 acres, but has been whittled down over time. I can say I am rather glad. I can’t see us farming and weeding 100 acres.
Farming is a hard life, but so rewarding. I can’t imagine doing anything else. We give to the earth, and the earth rewards us with food. We feel we now complete the circle in more ways than we have ever before.
We have always noticed the seasons change before, but this year we lived by them.
