Hi, and welcome! My name is Keely and I am a farmer, artist, a bit of a health nut, and apparently now a blogger.
In the spring of 2015, my husband, Nolan, and I quit our busy jobs and moved out of the city to work on my family’s certified organic farm in the beautiful Peace Country of Northern Alberta.
It’s been a tremendous adjustment and we absolutely love it! Every day is a challenge, and a chance to learn something new. We love having such a solid sense of purpose and to be able to actively support what we value – authentic living and authentic farming.
The Z Spread Ltd, where we work and play, is a third generation farm that has been certified organic since 2001. I feel so grateful for the hard work of my parents and grandparents. We are lucky to have access to a wealth of knowledge that my dad shares with us, as well as dozens of farm diaries from over the years. These have been priceless during our first year as full-time farmers.
My intention for this blog is for it to be something like those farm journals, where we can keep a record of what we are learning, and share our tests and triumphs. I hope it will also become a means to share the ever-growing enthusiasm and love that we have for this organic farm life!
Thanks for reading!
