About

 

OUR MISSION:

At In My Back Yard at Misty Hollow, we grow, gather and explore nature’s bounty for food, flavor and health.  Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, and hands-on workshops extend the reciprocal relationship of human and earth health to our shareholders & neighbors.  Those who work with us move from being passive to active participants, from the ground up, in the creation of their own body and life.

OUR BEGINNING:

We are Sally Hammerman, an artist, teacher and a nurse; Jim Hammerman, a self-taught carpenter, teacher, and grower.

Jim wished to grow plants full-time.  Sally, not wanting mud-muck added to our 1700′s creamery/home said “build a barn,” so he did.  Jim, encouraging Sally to join him in the fields, said “come grow with me,” and she did.  We feel blessed with the community that joins our efforts.
