Not your grandmother’s farmhouse! As you can see, with its thick mud walls and living roof, this is like no farmhouse you’ve ever seen. We quickly discovered, though that this cross-shaped, home, with its vaulted ceilings, is the beating heart of the property.
Last spring we traveled seventy-five miles east of our home in San Francisco, to Dixon, California, where we found Eatwell Farm, an unconventional, organic enterprise that produces dozens of small crops every year.
The farm’s bounty feeds Sacramento and Bay Area folks like us, who want to know where our food is grown, how it is grown and the philosophy of the folks who grow it.
Right now, I’m putting the finishing touches on a virtual tour of the farm that includes photographs of some of the crops they grow there and the animals–domestic and wild–that share the property.
If you haven’t already, subscribe now so you don’t miss the tour. See you soon!
UPDATE 9/14/2015: The virtual tour is now live. See it here: Touring Eatwell Farm: Food for the Body and Soul.
