East End Farmer
Farming has changed my life. Growing up I had no idea how hard my father worked. It seemed simple, you plant something, water it, give it sunlight, it grows. If only it were that simple. Join me on my farming adventures as we learn the ups and downs to citrus and avocado farming in the Ojai Valley on my blog.
After my father died, I was looking for a purpose beyond mothering and bodywork, something that could help me find happiness again. It was one of the hardest times in my life and I decided I wanted to find a hobby that I couldn't have done while he was living. Deathly allergic to bee's, it was something we avoided when with him, now that he had passed, I started looking into it more. I was captivated by their complex hive like mentality, their unity, loyalty, and unstoppable work ethic. My fascination continues to expand and my curiosity is everlasting. Becoming a beekeeper was one of the greatest choices I have ever made in my life. I will always be one, the only question is, how many hives can I maintain comfortably and how much more can I learn?
