Just dropping in to let you know what we were up to today.
We did a little bike riding around the neighborhood this morning, then rode out in the country to check out Gale Woods Farm, a working, extensive farm in the Minnetonka area. Paysh’s grandfather, Ray Felt, used to be the farm manager out there many years ago.
It is a beautiful spot, very hobbit like, and after having a picnic, we took a long stroll around the farm on a beautiful, cool summer day.
What’s really cool about the farm, is that they try very hard to practice sustainable agriculture, using buffer zones to help keep the water clean, compost to help regenerate the soil, as well as animals (sheep, goats, cows, and chickens) to fertilize the soil and keep down weeks and bugs.
This is the future of agriculture, just as much as it was the past. Very nice to see it happening in such a place.
