I have lived in Homer for over 50 years, enjoying a variety of careers and experiences. As a child I gardened alongside my father. I do admit that I did not think it fun at the time, lots of weeding, but I have grown to love the smell of freshly turned soil in my hands. I have a deep seeded passion and talent for growing. It is thrilling to be able to experience the joy of developing our farm into a place that’s not only “work” but “play”. I love sharing my enthusiasm with my grandchildren, whom like to be in the field sniffing flowers; fragrance control.
In my prior life I was selling travel. My non-gardening husband, Kurt, had commercially fished during the summer. He currently works on the water for the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system. In between trips, he can be found helping me out with the infrastructure of the farm harvesting, as well as keeping me happy! (which he says is a full time job).
My four legged companion, Willa, is a sweet little German Shepard that is always at or under my feet! She is the official greeter at the farm as well as the protector of the “girls” when they are not in the hen house. She also makes a great early warning system when the occasional moose or bear wander thru the fields.
We are very proud to be a teaching farm. We host college aged interns and traveling “WWOOFers”; Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. They are a part of an effort to link visitors with organic farmers, promote an educational exchange, while building a global community conscious of ecological farming practices. I look forward to sharing my passion for growing with these like minded folks who live on the farm with us. It turns out this young-old dog can learn some new tricks too.
As the name implies, we really do live in a “scenic place”, with incredible views Kachemak Bay, glaciers and the Kenai mountains. All summer long we have people come to the farm for tours and workshops. We are a favorite location for professional photographers. Beautiful flowers in a beautiful setting.
