Sweet Local Farm is an idea as much as it is a place. It is our response to growing up in the suburbs, moving to the city, but having this nagging feeling that there was a better way to live. Our grandmothers were born on farms. They ate food they grew and drank milk they raised. As children of the 1980′s and 90′s, we are a generation raised on processed foods. Inspired by the modern local food movement, we planted a garden in our small urban yard. We enjoyed the fresh, affordable, sustainable food so much that we wanted to grow food on a larger scale.
Sweet Local Farm is the three acre homestead where we are learning to be self sustaining. It is located in Western Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley, USDA zone 6a.
Sweetlocalfarm[dot]com is where we document the challenges and joys of learning to live, in some ways, more like our grandmothers.
