Farming

I farmed almost every year in the 1970s and gardened in the '80s. After some years of not having my hands in the soil I am farming again. 2005 marks my 7th year at Sunny Pine Farm in the Twisp River Valley in the North Cascades. Sunny Pine Farm currently has 25 acres in vegetables, herbs and alfalfa. I mainly work with the medicinal herbs. We had 120 medicinal species growing in 2001 and the farming made up almost half of my workload.
