Welcome to K7 Farm!   Our ‘official’ beginning happened in the backyard of our suburban home.  While we have been increasingly working towards a higher level of self sufficiency over the past 13 years (learning to garden, can food, cook from scratch, sew, make soap, save seeds, etc, etc.) we decided to turn my passion into a career and make it ‘official’ as a business in 2012.   Our family of 9 quickly outgrew our backyard as we continued growing more and more food and we decided it was time to make that final leap towards our dream of owning more property.

So with the prayers and support of friends and family, and the teamwork between my husband and I, we made it happen.  We now live in Concord, MI on 15 acres.  We continue towards a higher level of self sufficiency, putting all those years of practicing to good use!  We have always grown in sustainable ways without the use of pesticides or other chemicals in the garden.  Our animals are treated with love and respect, with quality foods fed and proper housing.  Our chickens free-range during the day and are cooped at night for their protection.  The difference in their eggs is amazing since being able to free range!

We are on a mission to become a trusted source in our community for sustainable agriculture practices, friendly service and thorough, relevant education.   It is my goal to share our experiences of farming and homesteading to those who wish to learn, which is why I have this blog.  My husband  teaching CPL classes (concealed pistol license) and does shooting lessons.  He is an NRA certified instructor.

We will be offering homegrown, pesticide-free vegetables, herbs and fruit and free range chicken eggs at our farm stand.  As time allows I may offer homebaked goodies as well – but you are always welcome to place an order so you can be sure it is available when you want it.  Periodically we offer animals for sale that we have raised on the farm that are ready to go to their new home, such as chickens or rabbits.   I look forward to getting to know our community.  Just as much as you may want to know your farmer and know how your food is grown and where it comes from, we also want to get to know our customers and develop relationships.

A little bit about us – my husband and I have seven kids.  We homeschool.  We love Jesus.   We live a frugal life in order to obtain the big things that are important to us (such as this farm).  I love encouraging other families and helping others learn more about cooking from scratch, living frugally, homeschooling, gardening, canning, homemaking and more.
