Donna's farm is 156 acres and has been in her family for over 100 years. Her farm is gorgeous, as you will see in the photos below, and she likes to keep it that way by using only sustainable farming practices.
As soon as I got to the farm, I started taking photos, and this is the view that I was greeted with:
A beautiful old barn (!!!)
In this garden she grows broccoli, a slew of different greens, onions, beets, beans, and herbs
A detail of her interesting companion planting scheme
Not too long after I got to the farm, Jessie the 'guard dog' came to check me out...
Me getting 'attacked' by Jessie
Being the hardy soul that I am, I recovered quickly from the barrage of licks and tail wags that I got from the vicious farm dog, and I was put to work harvesting garlic. Donna grows two hardnecked varieties of garlic (porcelain and Russian red giant).
Unfortuantely the day went by too quickly and I eventually had to get back into 'city slicker' mode. Jessie was sure to see me off and took it as an opportunity to further demonstrate how skeery she is as you can see from her aggressive body language...
