Consider Buying This Sacred Farm

 Hello Moon Bears,

We are selling the farm. This has not only been our beloved home, it has been sacred earth which has provided LIFE infused food to thousands of people. We are planning on putting it on the market with Marsha Thomas-Carney in one week. This week we're putting out the call to all our customers and friends in hopes that someone that loves the earth and perhaps wants to farm would buy this place. Our dream is to see this place still loved and still treasured and still providing for our community.

We've had an amazing eight years here on the farm. We have loved each and every moment connecting with you. The farm is a making a modest profit. And it is at it's peak of fertility. The art spaces are light and warm and ready for more creativity. I am going back to school, and we plan on staying in Battle Ground. So, farm mentoring is a possible part of the bargain too.

Here are a few highlights about the Art Farm. And you can also go back through our earlier blogs to see many photos of the land and spaces.
