My Mom's exciting project!

In honor of Mother's day I thought I'd tell you a little about my Mom's exciting project. My Mom has been farming and running her own business for over 25 years. Just recently she bought a new farm and started a new project that I think is very exciting. Four Springs Farm is dedicated to hands on agricultural education and community building as well as being a beautiful vacation spot.
It is a working organic farm comprised of a Bakery, a Community Supported Agriculture program, a Campground and Cabins and a Community center. Mom's goal is to create a space for families to visit and learn about all aspects of farming and the natural world. She has workshops over the summer and everyone is welcome to come and stay on the farm. Next year we are planing a workshop on natural dyeing! Four Springs Farm is located on a gorgeous hillside in central Vermont. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in all seasons. Check out her website and plan a visit!
Yay Mom!

What an incredible farm! And how lucky you are to live there this summer. I was an ag major for my bachelor's degree and have always loved gardening and animal care ever since. My dream is to have a small farm with a kitchen garden, chickens and an alpaca or 2. And a golf cart, because you need a way to get around.
