I had been praying about a name for the nursery, and wanted it to glorify God, since He is at the center of our farm and homestead. Everything in life begins with a seed. When we sow a seed, we are trusting and putting it into God's hands where He can then graciously send miracles for us to watch grow in our gardens and in our lives as well!
All life is precious and beautiful, and starting this nursery has been such a huge joy and blessing.
A Little Bit About Me.
Originally from the South, our family moved up to Vermont in 2010 with the desire for a different kind of life - a slower pace, and one where we could be actively part of growing our own food and thus Sweet Meadows Farm, a homestead farm based on permaculture and regenerative growing, was born. We remote schooled our now graduated kids for 10 years via Oak Meadow School (Vermont-based independent school) and are big supporters of the Weston A. Price Foundation view on traditional foods, "back to basics" eating, and their philosophy on health. I was introduced to this type of eating in 2010 when we first got the Nourishing Traditions book, and then the GAPS diet when Sally Fallon came into town in June 2012 for a 4 day Weston Price conference. These two diets (both based on Weston Price) have changed our lives dramatically. Our family of four consists of myself, my husband Larry, and our two beautiful young adult kids. In addition to being an ADGA Nigerian Dwarf goat breeder and homestead farmer, I am also a homeopathy student of Joette Calabrese and a Wellness Consultant for Doterra essential oils. In my down time, I am a writer/photographer, singer, artist, website designer, and have my own independent publishing company In the Meadow Books. God is central in my life and I could not do any of what I do without His grace and many blessings.
We employ various helpers seasonly, and some who will be helping more consistently as we grow, all of who have been so invaluable to getting this project off the ground. We are most grateful for their dedication and time, and have been so blessed to have them here!
