​​Endless Winter Farm

​​​Welcome to Endless Winter Farm  

Before I became a farmer, I was a registered nurse for over 20 years specializing in surgery.  I’ve worked in over 10 hospitals all across the United States.  After all my years of practice, it never ceased to amaze me how many patients I saw with medical conditions or surgeries that could have been prevented if only they would have taken the time to eat right, exercise, and take care of their bodies. 

My husband Tyler and I lived full time in an RV and worked travel nurse assignments together for well over 8 years.  While we enjoyed traveling and exploring new places together, in 2009 I finally decided I wanted to put down some roots so I could start a homestead.

One reason for wanting to start a homestead was because most Americans haven’t been told about some of the ingredients that are in the food they eat.  Currently, 64 countries around the world require labeling of genetically engineered foods.  Unfortunately, the United States is not one of those countries.  I knew if I started growing and producing my own food, I would know exactly what I’m putting into my body.  It's hard to grow your own food while traveling around the country in an RV!

The first summer after we bought our house, I started with a small garden.  A few years later, we added some chickens.  Eventually, I decided there were many issues in the dairy industry I couldn’t live with anymore.  Fortunately I live in Idaho where raw milk is legal, but I still decided I wanted to produce my own milk.  Not quite equipped to add a cow to our little farm, I decided goat milk would be very practical for me to do.  And after all, in most countries of the world the primary milk consumed comes from goats.  I have read 65% of the milk consumption worldwide is from goat’s milk – a fact I don’t think most Americans are aware of.

My goal at first was to produce enough food for my own household.  Every year my garden gets bigger, and I add more projects and animals to my list.  It can become quite expensive to produce your own organically grown food so I decided to try to produce a little more to sell and trade with friends and neighbors to recoup some of my costs.  This is how it all began.
