Thanks so much for checking out our site and navigating far enough to see our blog! If you're asking yourself, "What is this? What am I reading? Is there going to be a recipe down below after I scroll for hours?" click the "Who We Are" at the top of the page, where we explain everything (sorry, no recipes).
This being the first blog post on the site, I thought I would talk a bit about how we intend to use the blog overall.
As we are just starting out this farming endeavour here at Sandhill Lane Farm, the posting frequency may not be very high. However we do intend to maintain momentum building towards a productive growing season starting in 2022, and a lot of that depends on some initial legwork here in the waning months of 2021. With that being said, the following non-exhaustive list of things we intend to blog about over the coming months:
Compost bin construction
Crop planning for 2022
Some of these posts will read quite a bit like a photo-diary, showing the visual steps taken to make something we need on the farm. Some posts will be more academic in nature (heh) as they will focus on the principles and processes by which we intend to foster growth and produce healthy food here on the land. With all of the posts, we will do our best to keep them from droning on and on, while still being informative and interesting.
For those whose attention spans diminish by the time you get approximately HERE in a blog post - don't worry. Each blog post will usually have a sort of "micro blog post" to match on Instagram. These will amount to a paragraph and a few photos to whet your appetite.
Once we feel as though we have something worth filming (and time to edit), we will likely also set up a YouTube channel and post videos.
Anyways, thanks for sticking this one out and reading this awfully
meta post. I promise the next one will be worth reading!
