New Happenings at Gomez Family Farm

The Need for Families to be Self-Sufficient

Farm and ranch families comprise 2% of the U.S. population. But by the year 2050 we will have almost 10 billion people globally. Farmers will have to increase food production by 70% to feed them all. Our mission is to teach other farmers and families in rural, suburban and urban areas about farming, the great outdoors and self-sufficiency. We use many self-sufficiency skills on the farm such as gardening, animal husbandry, canning & preserving food, blacksmithing, slaughtering, butchering, and wine making.

July Happenings on the Farm

We are working on fattening animals up while we have an abundance of fresh green grass. We want them to go into winter looking as good as possible. We are also fattening piglets who are growing fast for our winter pork. They are Hampshire and Red Wattle cross. We also have 6 roosters who will be going in our freezer sometime this month as well. We had a hen hatch 17 chicks. Hopefully they will grow up to be great egg layers.

We added 200 catfish fingerlings to our pond. We are trying to get the pond stocked up and ready for fishing this summer.

All in all we have had a good growing season in the garden. Our biggest hurdle for the garden will probably be getting sufficient rainfall for the crops. We planted corn, cantaloupe, watermelon, okra, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, green beans, peas, peppers, tomatoes, beets, spinach, onion, potatoes, strawberries, garlic, carrots, asparagus, and herbs. The pear trees have done well this year. The grapevines are loaded down with fruit. We are busily eating fresh from the garden and preserving our bounty!

It's Time to Get Outside & Enjoy Nature!

We wanted to assure you that your safety is our top priority during these times. The great thing about the cabin is there is plenty of fresh air and outdoor space away from people. There are several activities to do outside at the cabin such as fishing, hiking, playing outdoor games and enjoying the fire pit. You will not have to worry about interacting with other people unless you want to such as going to the store .

Also we are cleaning and sanitizing the cabin according to CDC guidelines and Airbnb enhanced cleaning protocol.
