So what do we have? We have a little acreage, a Jersey milk cow, a handful of Jersey heifers and lots of ambition, love and sometimes just plain bullheadedness.
So what are we going to do with the above listed 'treasures'? Well, this year we have set off on our journey by participating in Produce in the Park, one of Atlantic's local farmers markets. We got a late start on our garden so we began by taking all sorts of baked goodies including chocolate dipped brownie bites, hand pies, and danish pastries. As the season progressed, we were excited to add fresh veggies such as tomatoes, peppers, green beans, and carrots to our offerings at Produce in the Park!
Next year we plan to expand our garden and sell produce from our home as well as at Produce in the Park. Also, in the works- we are planning a small milking parlor and on farm creamery where we plan to milk our small herd of Jersey cows and turn the milk into delicious, nutritious yogurt for sale, along with our veggies and baked goods, at both Produce in the Park and from our homestead!
SO, who are we?
We are just a young couple setting out on a long and probably arduous journey of providing locally, transparently produced food for our community!
And why do we want to blog about it??
Because being 'transparent' about how we produce your food, means we have an obligation to share with you what we produce, how we produce it and why we do it the way we do. You can also learn more about us by checking out the rest of our website www.brunkofarm.weebly.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/brunkofarm
So thanks for joining us on this journey. And as always ... Enjoy!
