Spinning Straw Into Gold?

We are very interested in being able to sustain ourselves by running a farming/tourism/crafting business and we are always looking for ways to improve on the principles that we are using to build our little kingdom.

Recently Chris told me to look into SPIN Farming. It's cool. I really love the business model and the way it encourages people to use what they have access to. We are going to use SPIN techniques to plant and market our farm produce! Check out

Just today, Chris told me to check out STRAW Bale Gardening. It is also awesome. Check out

While we were talking I thought, "Why don't we do both! We could say we are spinning straw into gold! We could call it Rumplestiltskin Farming or something like that!"

I got really excited.

We will be implementing techniques from both of these schools of thought and we will let you know what we find out. Sign up to follow us through email to get regular updates on how and what we're doing!
