Amber

Head of the Homestead

I grew up camping, fishing, and climbing trees. Although I didn't have a garden at home growing up, I had quite a few influences who introduced me to growing food. I love to garden because it teaches our children (and myself!) responsibility, self-sustainability, and patience.

Cali

The Loveable Licker

You can often find Cali around the yard chasing lizards. She takes her job as flock protector pretty serious. She loves our friends and family & is always down for a good snuggle.

Tessa Hibbard

Food Master

Also known as "Gigi". The kitchen is her territory. She's always cooked the best food and completed her commercial food apprenticeship in 2006. I don't think I've ever disliked anything she's ever made - trust me, she's that good.
