I live on a 4.6 acre small hobby farm in the Monadnock Region of NH with my husband and two youngest children. We raise heritage breed chickens, turkeys & rabbits. Currently keeping a 24 × 24 raised bed vegetable garden, herb garden next to the house with a small water garden, and an heirloom apple orchard (restoring and adding to the original one (house was built in 1768 and was a very active orchard and cider mill). Honey bee apiary was added in the orchard in 2010 and is currently housing two Langstroth hives. Everything is done naturally (not technically “organic,” but as close as possible).
We also share our farm with two dogs (a big friendly bear of a German Shepherd Dog and a super happy little American Pit Bull Terrier), two tortoiseshell house cats, two African Clawed frogs, three horses (two BLM Mustangs & a Medicine Hat Paint), and whatever various little squirrel, bird, toad, frog or other critter happens to stop by (and not eat anything it shouldn’t! :))
The garden currently contains store bought seedlings, but next year (now that the beds are in and everything set up the way we want) we will be growing exclusively heirloom vegetables.
