So many people ask about the presence of eagles along the Mississippi River, and I am proud to report that two new eagles will be visiting during summer 2020. 


EAGLE SCOUTS that is.

In honor of this special day, I want to share a few thoughts.

After a successful four month summer pilot for me to test my big crazy idea, the owner offered to sell my business the island.  An investor with a huge heart heard my pitch and we completed the purchase!  We did it! We aren't just leasing.  It's official: We...

We just seized an incredible opportunity.  We'd been looking for the best way to manage the buckthorn and the purple loosestrife which are invasive species at the farm AND at the island.

 Thanks everyone who has reached out to send congrats and share my joy.  Just to restate the obvious, this is a pilot project and it's not our plan to make this a tourist destination.  I know everyone wants to come and see what I'm working on, but we aren't ready for g...
