This homestead - 14 Mile Farm - is a place and a dream and a burgeoning way of life.
It is our home.
We dream and work towards a life of sustenance, of permanence and growth, of cycles and seasons and living in place. Of food and family. Of harmony and the dance of interdependence. Of reverence and joy and the messy beautiful experiments of life.
All on a south facing slope in the boreal forest north of Fairbanks, Alaska.
We envision a future with gardens and bees and sheep and chickens and a cow and geese and pigs and a horse and rabbits and fruit trees and greenhouses and a barn and berries and children running everywhere.
Right now, we have 2 huskies, 2 cats, a feral raspberry patch, some flowers, 2 baby apple trees, one baby pear tree, 2 perennial beds, 4 garden beds and 2 compost piles.
We're getting there.
