Market Farming

Volunteerism and Community

My wife and I (I’m 68, she's 64) came to the Spokane area 6 years after buying land here with the idea of starting a small farm. We made a bargain that because she has a much better resume than me that she would find work in town and I would stay on the land and do everything else- build the farm infrastructure, plant the plants, tend the animals, cook and clean. For the first 3 years I did this pretty much alone except for her help on the weekends and days off.
