Homegrown & Pesticide-Free
We’ve always loved to garden organically. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as eating our own homegrown and pesticide-free veggies. Each year, we save the seeds from the our heirloom varieties to plant the following season. We save money, and it also helps preserve the plant diversity, which is rapidly disappearing.
We compost everything from our kitchen except the meat scraps piling on leaves, shredded paper, grass clippings, and chicken manure. You get the picture. (Meat scraps are critter magnets, and we avoid putting out anything that will attract “unwanted” visitors.)
Our desire to eat homegrown inspired us to put more effort into growing our own produce, and it was only a proverbial hop, skip and a jump to raising pastured poultry .
