Happy New Year from HOPEWELL FARM

It seems kind of tacky to say, "I'm back," as it's been four years since my last post. That's a lot of water under the bridge and a LOT of changes. So, here I am starting over again. If you've found your way to this post you are either a friend of mine or you were intrigued by something I posted either on Facebook or Instagram. My goal is to post weekly about things pertaining to our little farm. The one we live on, not the one we have for vacations, but more about that later.
Currently on our 17 acres we have a large one acre garden, 11 chickens, 2 rabbits and 1 dog. Oh and maybe three kittens after this weekend. We work hard and play hard and want to share the learning and the fun with anyone who wants to listen or sample a taste.😉
New to us this year-we have named our farm; welcome to HOPEWELL FARM. The name is an acronym for Helping Other People Eat Well! Our mission is to impact our community with fresh organically grown fruits and vegetables, fresh eggs from free range chickens, fresh herbs in season and wonderful herb blends the rest of the year, and to be a resource to help those in need in our community. Our garden activities still fall under the name of Firstfruits Cooperative and new this year is our road side stand open every Saturday. More information to come.
We have lived here now for four years and people comment all the time about the many changes and improvements they see on this property. It is rewarding to hear that people notice, but really, things could not get much worse than they were when we arrived in January of 2013. God has been very kind to us and blessed the projects we've taken on. Scroll back and take look, and then follow along as we continue to grow the land we've been blessed to steward.

You can find us on Facebook and Instagram.
