She grows vegetables, greens, herbs, flowers and fruits on a seven year crop rotation as well as uses a “management intensive grazing method” for her flocks. She cultivates yarns as well as soaps and other handcrafted goods that she fuses with wool fibers. Comment below to keep the conversation going!
