Crockern Farm is where we moved in 2012. Located in the heart of Dartmoor National Park in England, we are surrounded by wilderness, wildlife and projects to restore this old house and garden to something more self-sustaining.
I grew up in Ohio in the US, lived on the East Coast for over twenty years as an adult, and then met and married Roger. Roger grew up in England, has an affinity for the natural world and a good sense of humour. We were traveling in the Canadian Arctic when we met and share a love of the outdoors.
I was once told that if you jump, the net would be there. So at an age where we are old enough to know what we are getting into, and young enough to still do it, we decided to jump into this project and landscape. This blog is my attempt to chronicle and share our adventures. Our approach is to not get bogged down by mistakes, but instead appreciate those experiences that we may, or may not, repeat again. Along the way, we hope to have fun, learn a bit, and keep observing.
We are starting this adventure with our dog Sam and our three chickens. Who knows who else will join as time unfolds.
