Rebooting the Farm

Dec 22 2017 Published by under Journal

New Farm

As I look back on Suburban Stone Age over the last seven years, I realize we have been through many stages of growth.

The first three years we were getting established.  I was home full time, and invested in the long-term foundations of the farm, such as planting fruit trees.

The next three years, I went back to work at an office job full time.  Also, the worst drought in California’s recorded history peaked.  The results on the farm were that because I did not have the same time to devote, nor the water to spend, the farm contracted and simplified and went into survival mode.  Outwardly, it looked more like a leisure garden than a working farm.

But survive we did, and now I am  back on the farm full time, now and forever. It has taken several months of reorganizing, soul-searching, planning, failing, and trying again to get to a place where I’m ready to launch.  But we are there.

I will be rebooting the farm, and bringing you along for the ride.  Buckle up and hang on, we are going to have some fun proving sustainability works!

More to follow, stay tuned.
