Farm Name: Peaceful Acres Organics

Year Farm Established: 2007

Years I’ve been farming: 8 years

Animals I raise: Chickens; americunas, Buff Orpingtons, Black Australorps

Crops I grow: We have a 40x70 veggie garden, some berry brambles, 5 apple trees, 2 peach trees, a couple of pear tree, English walnuts, a dward 2-in-1 cherry and a dwarf 2-in-1 plum. We're adding kiwi and pawpaws next year.

The proudest moment on my farm: Three of my grandkids and their other mother visited for a couple weeks. We had several meals made completely with the garden produce and our fresh eggs. I loved seeing the look on the kids' faces when they realized that all the food came from our little farm.

Pets: One elderly German Shepard/Aussie mix that looks like a Border Collie, 8 indoor cats and 4 ferals that we feed.

  We're having an early spring here, and the daffodils and fruit trees are all in bloom. I don't quite trust it, though. I'll put in some peas, spinach and potatoes in a few days, but I'll wait until after the mid-April last frost date before I put out any of the warm weather veggies.

  January 8, and a long way to the last freeze date. I can't wait to get started outside, but in a few weeks I can start some seeds inside for transplanting once the weather is warm enough. It's been dreary and overcast nearly every day since mid-November, so I'm ready for some sun!

We like raising catfish, but have slowly but surely been edging out of that. We actually 'inherited' them when we bought the property, and thanks to an otter, we lost over half our stock a couple of years ago. I'm not really familiar with any books on the subject, but I do know we just mainly kept the pond aerated, and added water when the summer heat evaporates most of the pond. I do wish you luck with it, and let me know how y'all do. I may very well try to restock my pond with cats and try again!

  Good Morning! What a beautiful place and beautiful tree! We have just planted four apple trees here, and we're praying they'll do well, as we are in the South. With all your needlecrafts and love of all things farming, maybe try joining a homemakers club or gardeing club, if there's one in your area. We just recently got one established, and I'm trying to get involved, in spite of all the farm work and holding down three part time jobs. They are usually such a wealth of information and companionship! Let me know if you ever post pictures of your quilts - I'm a beginning quilter, and love to see other's works! I'm also a weaver and love needlework - right now I've gone back to making the old pre-printed embroidered pillow cases to give away as Chrismas gifts. Thanks for sharing your farm!

  Thanks for the welcome, all. I'm really happy with the apple tree. When we first moved here five years ago, I knew little to nothing about organic gardening/farming. That particular tree was a tiny little shrub that was growing through a fence that I wanted to remove, but other things took precedence and the "shrub" never got removed. I was astonished last fall to see a handful of ripe apples on my "shrub!" I read up on everything I could find about raising organic apples, and you see the results. There's 8-10 bushels of apples on a 10' tall tree. I think it likes me! :-)
