Here I am with a few of our girls. We're liking the electric poly net fencing to enable the hens to have access to more area while being able to move them from spot to spot when needed. It also helps us with predation, as we have lots of coyotes, possum, raccoon, and the occasional fox. In all, we have 13 buff Orpingtons and 13 barred Plymouth Rock hens that we are hopeful will be laying in August.

Although we posted this in other social media, I wanted to drop these in here for all to see the panting we were doing last evening in our hightunnel. 32 Beefsteak tomato plants, 16 Roma tomato plants, 16 red cherry tomato plants, 18 Yolo pepper plants, and 18 California Wonder pepper plants. That's half the hightunnel filled and we'll plant out the rest of the beds this week.  Whew!

Here's a candid and quick list of lessons of a first-time hog owner from our good friend Jared Stanley over at J&J Acres. Jared helps us avoid some of the challenges he and his family faced when they brought home American Guinea Hogs to their homestead.

My wife and I feel that it's time to part with one of our two acreages. So, we're putting our 10-acre place up for sale. It's in Holt, Missouri, and already has a good start of a food forest installed. The pasture has been laying fallow -- this will be the third summer. It's producing well to support livestock and the earthworm count has dramatically increased. There are apple trees, grape vines, gobs of comfrey, lots of mulberry, three large swales two installed with dozens of fruit and nut trees on them along with supporting nitrogen fixers. There is also the start of an additional polyculture orchard with several dozen fruit trees. The swales are harvesting water very nicely. Next door neighbors on either side of the property are very friendly and helpful. The property sits just off the Holt exit on I-35 so it's very easy to get into Kearney, Liberty or Kansas City very quickly. I have a complete permaculture design document describing the property in every way possible. I can email that to anyone who is interested. There is municipal water and electric and gas at the street to the east. It lays very nicely for someone wanting to build a homestead. Email me if you are interested or have questions. Note, the hightunnel pictured in the image below will not remain on the property. I will relocated it on our homestead. grubbs.dan@gmail.com

Jami, just sent you an email.

Daniel, yes, this is the same property, but the hightunnel will be relocated to my own homestead. The soil has improved dramatically since I've been holding the water on the property and allowing the pasture to grow and naturally die off to create organic matter to decompose and turn into new soil.

The Land Institute is the bridge to a new agriculture.
Kernza’s arrival has been a long time coming. The new grain variety from the Land Institute is derived from an ancient form of intermediate wheatgrass, a perennial that is actually a distant relative of wheat. And there’s a widespread team of researchers hoping their work will pave the way for an entirely new form of... Read More
