About Us
Started selling at farmers markets in Sonoma County in 1995. Started farming in Lake County in 2007. We purchased a team of Belgian draft horses to use in farming back in 1995 and found out land in Sonoma County was too expensive so the horses went to work as carriage horses. We have used the team part time in our agricultural pursuits in Lake County. The latest was the planting of a hay field in Kelseyville in the fall of 2009. Please see our newly updated website. www.lovefarms.net

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We grow as sustainably as possible. We raise animals and create our own compost for use on the garden. We store rain water, use solar power and wind power to supplement out electricity needs. We are members of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York. We also subscribe to the "Farmer's Pledge" as presented by the Northeast Organic Farming Association. http://www.ctnofa.org/OrganicCertification.htm

Additional Information
Chickens and eggs: Our chicken feed is now certified as organic. The chickens are also fed garden scraps and are free to eat bugs, and whatever other tidbits that chickens eat when they are allowed to run free.

Highlights this Month
We are busy with our attempt to grow lettuce all summer here in Lake County. Our second "Lettuce House" is up and half planted. A Third house will be ready in a couple of weeks. The first "Lettuce House should be ready to pick from about mid July. The "Lettuce Houses" are 20 X 50 foot structures, covered with shade cloth and include mini water spray nozzles that automatically come on when the temperature rises over 85 degrees. The houses are situated so that our daily afternoon winds will flow through the houses for a cooling effect. With so much to get done we are very late completing the baling of our hay crop. We are baling at night to allow the added humidity to make the baler work properly. Even so the hay is over cured and will not be as good if it had been baled earlier.
