Meet the farmers at The Farmer in Odell

When did you move to your farm?

We moved to our farm In October of 1998.

What was the first thing you did, garden or livestock, and why?

The first thing we did is get some animals - a turkey, a pair of bantams, two rabbits from a fair in early spring. Then we ordered ducklings and goslings and brooded them in the basement. The garden came very shortly after that.

What are you most looking forward to sharing on the farm crawl?

I'm looking forward to showing people how homesteading is possible even on very small acreage. We only have 1.5 acres.

What do visitors tend to enjoy the most on your farm?

Visitors most enjoy the variety of animals here. And, especially, the peacock.

What are your plans for the future? 

Our plans for the future are to sell extra goats and pigs. We're always trying to be as efficient as possible with garden space. Cram as much food into as little space as possible.
