Our Journey started with our pig named Aero, a small sawmill to build our home, and a garden that continues to get bigger every year. We are a family of three that is constantly evolving and growing. Our mission is to show others organic gardening is the way to go, and that you can build up any soil, even sand, to create your own magical paradise.
The process of building our home was exciting and hard, and we knew it would be worth it. We always wanted our home to be free from chemicals, and plywood, so that is why we started from scratch, one log at a time.
A log master LM1, gas powered, hand crank, and push feed. When we picked it up from the train station we were so excited! Once we got it home, we didn't know how we would set it up, after all, it weighed over 1400 lbs, and we didn't have our loader yet. So we got creative and used a pulley, some chains, and a tree. After everything was set up, the milling had begun, and the hard work has never ended. Our only regret was not getting a power feed system sooner.
We started our gardens before we started anything, we didn't even have fences till later on. Right away we started planting fruit trees, blueberries, hardy kiwis, and more, and we've never stopped. Every year we order at least 100 trees, this year it was 100 apricot trees. Our place becomes more of a jungle every year, and we can't wait to plant more!
By creating our organic gardens we've attracted so much wildlife, every year we discover more.
