I grew up in Appalachia. My husband did as well. Five years ago, we moved to Oklahoma to pursue higher education. While living there, we had many adventures, but none as exciting as becoming parents to our two curious children. Naturally, kids changed everything we ever thought we knew about life. This past August, we returned home to the hills of Kentucky.
My father-in-law generously gifted us the Richardsons’ farm that has been in their family for generations. It was once an operational tobacco farm and a subsistence farm. We decided to take it back to its roots, as well as ours, and turn it into a functional farm again in order to teach our kids where food comes from.
This blog will share our journey as we start a family farm this year.
