I encourage every parent to get their children involved in this very worthwhile day.  Information and forms are linked in the window to the right.

If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies!                           Author unknown

Our farm and lives are once again in a state of metamorphosis, hopefully much as the caterpillar or the future butterfly. It seems that nothing will just stay the same and that is probably a good thing. 

Economic conditions of the 2009 & 2010 seasons have been very hard on us.  The plant industry is very enjoyable and has given us some great friends over the years, but it is also a great deal of stress and pressure that basically comes down to a 12 week sales season.  Our family has a deep love for agriculture and we want to have a lasting presence in this business. 

We have made the decision to change the direction we are going with our farm and seek a philosophy that will allow us to be more sustainable and focus more on direct marketing to the consumer. It is also our hope that this will allow us time to enjoy working together doing what we love, without the breakneck pace of getting the next load of plants delivered.  

We will no longer be concentrating on large scale production of vegetable transplants and other plants but will instead focus on being a premier source of specialty herbs & vegetables, unique flowering perennials and annuals as well as continuing to grow as a source of quality daylily plants for the home garden consumer. We hope to be ready with some material to sale during a limited sales season this summer.  We do plan to hold Daylily Daze this summer, June 17 & 18, 2011.  

Four years ago, we began to market eggs from hens on grass pastures.  There is a great deal of information promoting the health and taste benefit of these eggs.  We are excited about the improvements we are seeing in our forage quality (and quantity) in the areas where the poultry have been.  Our son's interest in Southdown Sheep as a youth livestock project is leading us to the next step: direct marketing, of quality lamb and beef products.  In reality, we are still 3-4 years away from public sales in this area.  

These decisions were not reached hastily and God has richly blessed us as this has unfolded.  After making the decision that Nancy would have to seek a job, she was employed as an ag teacher 2 weeks later.   She loves what she is doing and is making a difference. After more than 25 years out of a college educational theory class, she passed the Praxis test on the first attempt! As the final deadline for property taxes drew even closer and how to pay was becoming very uncertain, an unexpected refund check for nearly the same amount came in the mail. It  seems that as every obstacle was beginning to loom large on the horizon, God opened a door and provided a blessing that was exactly what we needed. 

We appreciate the support of our loyal customers and are seeing from the number of you stopping by and calling that you appreciate our product.  We know we need a break and in God's time we hope to help to meet your needs once again.  Thank you.

The Earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.  

I can feel the earth tremble
Beneath the rumbling of the buffalo hooves
And the fury in the pheasant's wings
And there's fury in a pheasant's wings
It tells me the Lord is in His temple
And there is still a faith that can make the mountains move
And a love that can make the heavens ring
And I've seen love make heaven ring

Where the sacred rivers meet
Beneath the shadow of the Keeper of the plains
I feel thunder in the sky
I see the sky about to rain
And I hear the prairies calling out Your name
