We’re now a solar powered farm! In 2016, we installed a 6.2 kw solar system – enough to power our personal use plus all we need for the farm and have some room to grow. From providing light and heat for our seedlings, to refrigerating our produce, or pumping water – its all done by the power of the sun.
Winter has settled in and the plants are taking a break. Thanks to a slim snow cover, we keep busy with cutting fire wood – a never-ending task when you heat exclusively with wood. We’re thinning areas close to the house, providing more sun to certain growing areas and also opening up welcome views to the mountains.
