We Love All Animals!
Why we want to share our farm with you...........
Clinton, Indiana isn't a big town. On the outskirts, there are miles of woods and farm ground. So one would think that the majority of it's population would understand where their food comes from and how it is grown or raised. I don't think that's true anymore. The fast pace of life and the race of technology gets in the way. But, I feel important information is being left out in order for the next generation to make competent decisions that will in turn affect the generations after theirs. Information about plants and animals that is not experienced in school or at work and alternate healing methods.
Just the good stuff!
