Farmer in the City





Location:  Minneapolis, MN

Day Job:  Teacher

The Digs:  Backyard

Crops:  sunflowers

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I've always wanted a dairy goat farm. Since I live in a friends' basement presently, I am trying to learn new things, experiment, and become part of a community that embraces local food and sustainable ag.

    Congrats on farmer of the day.

    Good luck on the dairy goat farm. I'd like to raise a few goats too. When I move a little farther out of town I'm hoping to give it a try.

    That Nubian looks just like one that I used to have. They sure are cool animals to have.

    Good farmsteading,
