John and Catherine are a husband and wife team from Redding, Connecticut. We grow food and flowers on just under 2 acres of property.
We have been building our small farm from the ground up using reclaimed materials whenever possible. Our biggest reclaimed project to date is building a 12ft square greenhouse using recycled windows. That project took about 3 months to build over the winter of 2019 – 2020, and has served us well!
We have chickens which we raise to have a colorful egg basket and are in the process of setting up a breeding program. We just hatched several Ayam Cemani chickens and have some silked olive eggers and some silkies coming in the Spring of 2021.
We also have a small herd of alpacas that brings us great joy. We have 3 Suris (the long-hair variety of alpaca), named Pumpkin, Mocha, Marshmellow, and 4 Huacayas (the fluffy q-tip kind), named Maycee, Linda, Sophie, and Connie.
We also have 3 dopey Great Danes that keep us extremely busy (and are SUPER helpful), named Pepper, Peanut, and Pebbles.
