Four Generations Growing Food for God's Glory in Palmer, Alaska
Sunday, April 27, 2014
In an effort to maximize the bank swallow population which decimates the mosquito population, we have tried a home made facsimile. You can see the bank in the background where hundreds of them nest but experience the tragedies of bank collapse and even foxes and coyotes clawing up and digging them out. This boarding house should be safer but I'm told that bank swallows will not buy in to such contrivances. Hopes are that if they habituate we will be able to move them to other parts of the farm.
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com
Three Generations- 1987
Four Generations- 1999
The Ralph and Maxine progeny have evolved into a family with international roots that include Korea, Scotland, and India. In like fashion, the products of Wolverine Farm have expanded from potatoes and dairy to carrots, beef, eggs, berries and a broad spectrum of products. It has morphed from a sole proprietorship to an umbrella that covers a variety of businesses that market directly, through farmer's markets, and through commercial outlets.
