Here goes nothing….

Well, the garden is in. Simon and I have been working on the test garden down at the farm for the past couple weeks. With both of us working full time, and me finishing my last semester of grad school….it took us awhile but we finally made some headway. I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures to show yet…but soon we will have some video/photos of the farm to share. Looks like there will be some film students doing the initial filming of the beginning of the farm and I’m very excited about that. I want to document this amazing opportunity we have and just don’t have the time to do both the filming and the farming. Continue reading

Filmmaker/Photographer Needed for farm project!

To all my friends in film/photography: I am in search of someone (or a group of someones) to document the start of our life on the farm. If I haven’t talked about it enough already, my husband Simon and I are embarking on a new journey of sorts. We’ve been given the great gift of a large parcel of land in Festus, MO to start a farm and cheesemaking business. We have grand plans for the farm and are looking for someone to document the process from start to finish. It is an opportunity for you to film us from the very first planting to when the animals arrive and we start making our own cheese.

If you know me, you know that I am a city girl at heart….so this is going to be a major departure from my norm….but I have to be honest ans say that I am VERY EXCITED about this new venture.
So, who’s up for the job? This would be a great opportunity for a film student to do a project…or a novice photographer to get some experience. We won’t be able to offer a salary/payment for your services. But you will get as much veg/cheese/wool that you can use as the years pass. It would also be necessary for you to be in the southeastern MO area/St. Louis area.

Drop me a line if you want to give it a shot!
