|Farm's Mission Statement|
|Monday, March 17, 2008|
Every now and then I review the purpose of our farm, the underlying beliefs and values, the short and long-term goals, and the direction it is going.
It’s an effort for me to sort out which is which. Obviously we are trying to make a living on a farm, to run it organically, and to share the experiences with you. Since we live in a world dominated by corporations, I’ll use the corporate model as an outline.
Beliefs and Values:
1. Food is healthiest when it comes from a humus-rich farm, which produces its own feeds and fertility, and a garden, which is enriched with the farm’s compost.
1. A vibrant community supported agriculture farm.
Now that I’ve got that out of my way, I’m ready to spread tons of compost, plow and plant five or six acres of vegetables, keep the cattle moving around the farm, plan a few get-togethers, and write another article. But the latter will have to wait until next week.
