    Hi Brenda and Vance,

    Your website is a 11/10! You have paid attention to every detail and leave nothing to the imagination. One of my goals is to have someone who has been influenced by our farm, influence our farm. Your website does this in spades. You are providing Marie and I with new ideas, possibilities and inspiration!

    Checking out all of your pages makes me want to visit your farm, buy your food, and learn more about caring for the earth.

    Your values, your farm and your website will be a “key” influence and example to those wanting to heal the land, themselves and their communities. Society is craving for hope; you and your farm are bright and shining beacons. And……….you have only just begun! The future is waiting for your leadership!

    Best to you both,

    Don & Marie
