What's New?

Summer 2020 ~ 

 

June - Our startup project was fully funded! A hoop house will be installed in 2021. The space will be used to establish a fruit and nut tree nursery. We break ground next spring! Please check out our Wish List if you would like to help support us and you have any items you would like to donate. Check out the FAQ page to find out more about our organization.

 

Spring 2020 ~ We are working on planting fruit and nut tree guilds. We would like to establish several fruit and nut tree orchards to serve as living "classrooms." Meanwhile, our current focus is to continue building healthy soil by adding microbial nutrients and using other regenerative growing techniques. The family who lived on this land for several decades before ours used sustainable, organic growing methods. Chemicals and pesticides have never been used thank goodness. The soil is already incredibly fertile and we feel very honored to steward this land. 

 

We are looking forward to adding grazers in the next year or so, most likely goats. Eventually we may add a miniature cow (or two), but that's a few years out as first we need to build up healthy grazing grasses in the pasture fields. For now we are excited to keep building healthy soil.

 

Nonetheless, we would love a herd of goats to clear weedy areas and remove alder bush, prolific along the pasture margin and throughout the woods. Alder, although invasive where we are, is a nitrogen fixer which we will also use to help build soil nutrients. 

 

If you would like to join us on this journey please reach out and connect with us. We can always use extra hands around the farm.

Winter 2020 ~ In January we established Koz's Mini Farm as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our startup project will be a hoop house build which will enable us to establish a fruit and nut tree nursery. The nursery trees will be used ot plant community orchards.
