Old 99 Farm is a small farm, a permaculture demonstration site and market garden. 2008 was my first season, with about 20 vegetables in the ground. Now, 15 years later we grow 50 crops, have a producing fruit and berry orchard and grow all year round.
I call myself a “farmer-postdoomer-boomer, downwardly mobile, neopeasant cognescente”. I am the proprietor, permaculture designer and farmer-in-progress here and with loads of help and companionship from Camelia, my wife, we are making a beautiful thing blossom right here. We believe local food production is important for resilience in this time of climate emergency. We like to teach people what we know and help grow the community.
