ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A FARMER
- ABOUT ME -
Once upon a time there was a farmer named Kelly (who didn't know she was a farmer yet) with a small patio, a few flower pots, and some lettuce seed. One day the farmer grew herself a salad and a pretty bunch of flowers for her table. Watching her food go from tiny seed to the dinner table was like the magic of a fairytale. Before long she was growing cut flowers, strawberries, tomatoes, herbs, squash, even eggs, that she had raised in the backyard. She grew as much as she could, in every available space to grow. The farmer had a dream to share the magic of her garden with all the land. So she did, and she called it the Fairytale Farmette. Thankfully that is not the end of the story...
Welcome to the Fairytale Farmette. Happily ever after for me is sharing the joy of the things that I grow with my customers. I believe in small, local, and sustainable. I also feel a strong ethical responsibility to leave the space that I'm growing better than the way I found it. One of the best ways to meet those goals is to design all the parts on the farmette to work together to eliminate the need to bring in outside inputs like chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Being small allows me to get to know my customers too. Please don't hesitate to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop on by the farmette stand to see for yourself why Small is Beautiful.
