Real farm skills and stories

We are a small family farm raising goats for milk and using the milk to create artisanal goats milk soap to sell at farmers market. We have a market garden; growing vegetables and flowers using inputs from our farm, microbe inoculations, and minimal soil disturbance. We homeschool our kids and enjoy sharing with others about our farm. Ask us questions about what you hear...We are the farmers. As always your input is important. Let us know what you want to hear about and we will do our best to add it to the show!

Interview With Lindsay and Nathan Wolff
We are so excited to interview two incredible farmers and friends of ours we met at the Everett Farmers Market this year.  Pardon the feedback on the mic occasionally as we are still learning the platform, but enjoy the great insights on how these two farmers face challenges, create vision, enjoy community, and work together to find a balance in farming as a recently married couple.

Elk Antler Story and The Stirrup Hoe for Cultivating a Squash Transplant Bed in the Market Garden
This morning at 5 am the Roosevelt elk were out in the field munching in the grass and after I herded them into the next property I thought about the elk antler my son and found and wanted to share a little bit of history of our farm as well as how we use the stirrup hoe to cultivate a bed that is going to be ready this afternoon for squash transplants.
