About The Farmer's Hands

The Farmer's Hands is an organization with a dream of informing and inspiring people to learn to cook, ferment, preserve, and heal themselves with homegrown foods and plants. We hope to teach our community how to prepare local and fresh food and medicine by sharing our homesteading experience and the traditions and knowledge of our ancestors. We will share this through blog articles, instructional youtube videos and photos. We try our best to grow all of our own food, or support the local farmers in these mountains. We grow many varieties of flowers and create bouquets and arrangements for our events. We mend our clothes when the garden soil and summers play begin to weather them. We chop our fire wood when winters cold winds are coming. We bake our naturally leavened bread and the house fills with warmth and the smell of home. We want to share the treasures and stories that we've gathered along the way and hopefully through the blog, the videos and the photos, we will create a vision of a simpler time for you to retreat.
