Explanation of our Rates:    The reason we charge a nominal fee the training services we provide is more practical, than an attempt to make a lot of money.   Every hour that we spend helping others learn how to farm/garden, buy local food, and handle their own food we are spending time away from our farm.    The willingness to pay a nominal fee is a way to show respect for the farm lifestyle, and provide adequate support for the time we spend away from the farm.
