Joseph and Jacqueline Freeman bought their farm in January 2002, not expecting to become farmers. But the farm had other ideas and little by little we got quite an education. We dug a small garden and got a few chickens (the gateway livestock), progressed to turkeys, started pruning our orchards and then we were off and running. We added more acres and then dairy cows came for the new pastures, then beef cows and dairy goats. A few greenhouses came our way and we realized the food we eat here is better than anything we’ve ever had. The air is clean, wildflowers abound, we watch bats and swallows in the evening dusk and sleep more soundly. Our farm is a blessed place.
