An Animal Powered Certified Organic Family-Operated "Forever Farm"
Ilex verticillata the latin word for winterberrys-the American winterberry, is a species of holly native to eastern north America, used by native Americans as a strong healing herb.
The very fitting name for the farm of my children and I , we began this farm in 2001, we all work together to create this incredible balance we have between the animals, the produce and flowers and each other. Visitors to the farm are always amazed to see this balance in action.
At 27 Kenya lives in the Steam Boat Spring, Colorado with her husband Eben, and my two grand puppies, Alpine and Kelp.
Kenya is passionate about sailing on schooners and skiing back country with her best friend and husband Eben. Mountainside Doula is Kenya’s business in helping moms through the delivery of there babies.
At 6’3″ he is not so little any more.
with his team of oxen, he brings us
wood to heat our house, he dumps
compost to feed our vegetables.
That is in the winter months in the
summer Gil is in the Penobscot bay,
tending to his aquaculture business
and caretaking for several small island owners.
A million thank you’s could never
be enough for all you do, thank you
Son. Im so very proud of you.
and then there is Sage. The wise
socialite of the family-there truly is
something special about Sage. Everyone
Loves Sage. This nonstop curly headed,
giggle of a young lady can out run, out throw
just about anything she does. With
Chaga and anything else willing,
will pretend she is a horse at the grand
nationals jumping everything in sight.
Well at 17 Sage could and does run this farm and is into Softball, swimming,
skiing and horse jumping.
The woman driving this team, also
known as the “dreamer.” I have old
fashioned values, the happiest days
are being here on my farm, watching
my children grow. I love growing
food and preparing it for my
family to eat. The farmers that once
farmed here although they are long
Gone now, continue helping me. The
vegetables are slowly being replaced with
flowers and they are everywhere.
The year is 2023, and I am looking forward
to sharing my time with my Farm in Belgrade
and “Adam Campbell” my oyster man and his
oyster farm on North Haven Island in Maine. I
ask for your blessings and patience as I navigate
these unchartered waters.
