We all have places that made a profound impact on our lives. For me it was two places. One, is the Northwoods of Ely, MN. And the other, is this farm. But I never lived here. I have never spent more than a few days at time, every few years. But when my dear friends, Mary and Rick, built this place and I began to visit after college, it, and they, did something to me. It was a SPARK. It planted a seed of a dream to farm. To live in community. To grow food not only for myself, but for others. To live simply. And to share in this journey alongside others.
I owe much of what I do now to these friends and am eternally grateful for their friendship, wisdom-sharing and hospitality.
