We Bought a Farm: We Have Named our Farm!

It is impossible for me to share the "full version" of our family farm. 

One of those reasons is, the vision is still very big, and we don't know exactly which directions things will move. We have a lot of ideas and a lot of dreams, but we also know that God will direct our steps. We plan to wait on him to show us exactly where we should go.

The other is that a lot of the vision is in my husband's brain, and because he knows my brain holds explosion possibilities if too much information is presented to said brain, he limits how much I know. Or he tells me, and knowing I can't hold that information, I let it slide ride back out.

But one of the things we have definitely had a vision for is using this land to educate. We want other people to be able to share in this land both in enjoyment and learning.

An opportunity arose for JB to host a conference on the farm in September and after a lot of discussion between the two of us, we decided to go for it. On September 25 and 26, a very prominent permaculture speaker, Greg Judy, will be coming to our land to speak on "Risk Free Ranching -- Starting from Scratch." This course is truly designed for beginners. (JB tells me that even I could sit in on the course which is really saying something.)

I encourage you to visit this link to check out the course details and costs. Even if you don't want to attend, it will give you an idea of the types of things we plan to do on the land.

But even cooler is that embedded within this link is the new NAME of our farm. YES! WE HAVE NAMED THE FARM! I'll do a post on it at some later time, but for now, scan away to find the name for yourself.

All so very exciting - the name, the course, and the idea of using your land for education of all sorts!

You'll have to share how you came up with that name in a future blog. :D

Love that you used the German word for farm! Can't wait to hear the "why!"

This is Jenny by the way. I guess Ryan's computer is naming me "hairball" for some reason-ha!
