Everything is starting to grow very nicely around here.  It's important for these crops to get up and growing before winter comes and they go into hybernation mode until next spring.

The tall fesuce is getting bigger everyday!

The only thing left to do is harvest one more round of hazelnuts and plant the rest of our grass seed...we are just about finished up with fall work!

They raise grass seed, hazelnuts, crimson clover, wheat, vegetable seeds and peas. She grew up on the farm but never thought that farming was what would be her future. She left her small town to Los Angeles to get a degree in Business. But after years of city living she realized farming was in her blood.

She is involved in Farm Bureau, is a Clover Commissioner, and always tries to find new ways to bridge the gap between her urban neighbors and her rural life of farming. One of the ways she does this is through this blog, and also her personal blog, www.Nuttygrass.com Brenda is married to Matt Frketich who has also recently started farming with her. They also have a son, Hoot, and old hunting dog, Diesel and farm dog Yukon.
