Chemical pesticides and herbicides hurt us, the environment, and pollinators. What kind of a world are we leaving for the next generation? Let’s make it a better one.

Our Family Story:
Dave and I moved to this seven acre property with it’s old farm house and chicken barn over 30 years ago. Throughout all that time Dave ran his demanding Drywall Business.
His determination and commitment to be our family’s sole income allowed me to raise our five kids at home. It wasn’t easy for either of us.
I homeschooled the kids at various times in their educations. A place like ours is perfect for teaching hands on science, business and work skills. Compassion and respect for our world, animals and the chain of life naturally followed.
During our children’s growing up years we ran 4-h projects around food animals. We raised our family on our garden, scratch cooking and home grown meats.
Our oldest son, Bill, raised and sold pigs for years as a teen from our lil farm! His 800 pound sow, Bonnie, had free run of our fields. Bill adored Bonnie, and she him.
Our daughters also had projects out in the barn. Kayti raised, sold and showed mini lop rabbits for years. Amanda had her dogs and mini Rex bunnies.
Andra Lee never was a barn person, but she is a whiz in the kitchen. Our youngest son, Evan, enjoyed farm life too.
They all raised and showed sheep, goats, bunnies and lots of lil piggies every year at the NW Washington fair.
We had SO much wonderful support from our local community of educators. We will always be grateful for those relationships.
It means everything to see our children grown into wonderful adults. They are concerned thinking people seeking answers for a better quality of life for our communities and their kids future.
We enjoy hearing from you. We want to help you, learn from you and chat. Your input makes Homemade Food Junkie content better.
