- The farm built solar houses for the crew, which are now filled with families of crew members. Larry lives in one of these solar houses.
- While the farm grows culinary herbs for sale, they keep a small plot of land to grow food for the "Food for us" program, which produces weekly CSA shares for people who work on the farm.

Our second stop was Harley Farms and Goat Dairy, where farmer and founder Deborah Harley started out hand-milking 32 goats on a daily basis. They've since grown their herd to 200, which is at capacity for them, and make four soft cheeses (they are now experimenting with some aged cheese). They aim to stay small, and supplement their operations by offering farm dinners, goat tours, space for weddings and events, and a farm shop.
We made a couple more stops, and got to hear amazing stories from farmers. I'll leave you with just a few more photos - because I can't resist posting cow photos.
