Fernwood Farm

Last week Stephen and I took the plunge, it’s something we’ve been talking about doing for a really long time, something that would cement our nearly 18 year long relationship and make it, well, official.

That’s right, happily and privately, we registered ourselves as an official farm business.  Wait, what did you think I was going to say?

Yes we are now conjoined forever and as one in the form of Fernwood Farm, so named for the ferns that grow in our forest every spring.  We are committed to producing healthy food for ourselves and for our community, giving people access to pasture raised meat and eggs as well as organically raised veggies, honey and eventually other goodies too.  It’s exciting stuff!


We even have a website now, which makes us doubly official, and we will be adding products and other farm info on it as time goes along.  Oh, we have so many ideas and so many things we’d like to do!  Our long term plans include creating an orchard, farming mushrooms, adding varied livestock onto our pastures, creating forest gardens and wildlife habitats, cultivating our bees and the wild bee populations, supporting rare and heritage breeds…I could go on (and on) but I won’t.

In order to make it easier for people to find out info about the farm, we’ve merged my blog with the farm website, it’s only a little change but if you want to find me you’ll need to go here from now on.  My blog has been shipped over so I’m not starting from scratch, just adding a little change to my address, I hope you’ll still come and visit me!

This is the beginning of a really exciting new chapter for us, something we’ve been dreaming of for a really, really long time.  It’s going to be a lot of work, a lot of learning and a lot of ups and downs, and hopefully ups again!  I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

See you at the farm!

      Thanks my friend! Maybe something in a yurt down in bottom field, if you don’t mind the company of deer!
