Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

Simpler thyme farms is an all purpose farm, that would specialize in self sustainability practices We would be educators and have 4H classes, We would continue to grow food for food shares, and local recipe boxes Farm stand, cottage foods, We would like to grow the therapy piece where Veterans come to the farm and work with the animals and farming , to help destress from the war Kelly is a therapeutic ER nurse with PTSD military experience training. Nubian Goats, poulty and LGD would be a big part of that.
year round access to microgreens
