One of the most common features on our “Farm” are the large outcroppings of granite that run throughout our property. While these make beautiful natural features, such steep hills with high over looks and long winding gullies are not exactly the sort of features your typical farmer would look for in a farming property. With all the large modern farming equipment available these days it would prove a challenging activity to try to farm this property using modern methods. We quite like our rocks, the long winding road and trails that snake in amongst the granite and the forest opening up onto a number of hidden “arable” fields dotted here and there. The absence of a flat, treeless, easily tilled and harvested landscape provides so many opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. We are truly blessed at the variety of naturally occurring produce that grows right in our backyard. A modern farming operation would have brushcut all of this natural diversity and we would be the poorer for it.
