Hi. We are David and Alice. We have been avid gardeners for many years and enjoy growing our own healthy foods and raising livestock. We raised three kids on our small scale farm near Red Oak Texas and have grown fruits and vegetables and raised all kinds of livestock.
When our kids were growing up, we raised Texas Longhorn cattle, had horses, chickens and we always had a garden. We believe that our small farm lifestyle helped to develop our family as Christians with strong values and work ethics. Our kids are grown and successfully living their own lives now.
Now that we are empty nesters, we no longer have a need for as many animals on our pastures. We will still raise a few sheep for meat and we really enjoy having chickens for their egg production. But, over the years of having cattle and horses, our pastures were geared towards growing grass for livestock forage and the black clay soil is very compact.
Now, we are inspired to begin our journey in organically grown vegetables, herbs, berries, fruit, eggs and beekeeping. We are working hard to convert our pasture into fertile ground for growing these crops. Our goal is to provide these crops for our family, friends and our local community.
In the video below, you can see the new pasture area we are developing using permaculture and low till methods. We invite you to follow us on our adventures in small scale organic farming.
