We've been going out to film Darby and Elliot since April. The farm is coming along nicely, along with robust vegetable production, they've added a bunch of heritage breed chickens, 4 goats and 5 beautiful sheep. They're selling at two Farmers Markets in Atlanta. Darby has a great blog where you can read all about their farming adventures. Check it out! the sun dog farm

In April we posted the first pictures at Serenbe. We've been back a number of times since and its great to see the "farmerization" taking place with the newbies. Gretchen and Ashley now move with confidence and speed. They've got skills!!!
John Davis is a new intern who will be at Serenbe for the rest of the growing season. He is a wanna/gonna be farmer, interested in food justice.
