About me

Industry Agriculture
Occupation Farmer
Location Alsea, Oregon, United States
Introduction I moved from the city to a farm at 50 with two dogs, two horses, a cat and a husband. We are currently responsible for 60+ sheep, 13 chickens, 2 geese, 2 turkeys, a peacock, an additional horse, a Sicilian miniature donkey, and a cat brought in to control the mouse and chipmunk (and dare I say, rat) populations. I think we may have lost our minds - our kids certainly think so. A sportscar would have made more sense for a midlife crisis. But no, we bought the farm in more ways than one. It's "Green Acres" Oregon style and I never even saw the show!

What's the most amount of sand you've ever had in your swimming trunks?

Enough to build a small sand castle before the tide came in and washed it away.
