VERY FUN ... and helping us to make Plant a Row - Grow a Row sustainable.




Hi ... there's a small band of us in Utopia who are working on the development of a farmers' market .... we started off with fresh baked bread, have started to learn the ins-&-outs of pie-making, collect scrap metal ...
and have now earned enough and have had the great support of a local farmer to become the proud owner of 20 chickens.... now known as the Happy Hens of Utopia .....

We are going to get that gristmill restored one way or the other ....
