The Lamm Family Farm is an enterprise of three generations of an average California family. (Well maybe not too average!) Some of us live on the farm; some of us live in traditional suburban neighborhoods. Most of us are working at careers away from the farm, while contributing time, money and skills as needed, to make the farm go. Melissa is doing the hardest job….raising the babies to take over when it is their turn!
What is The Lamm Farm? Twelve Acres of rolling, oak studded foothills outside of Lincoln, California. Traditionally a farm is considered to be smaller than a ranch; providing a larger variety of crops or activities. We are certainly smaller than most ranches, and it will take a large variety of products for this farm to be profitable. In times gone by, a family farm provided a sustainable lifestyle that may or may not have provided much money, but it supported the family and frequently that family included multiple generations, like us. That is our goal on The Lamm Farm. We are exploring agricultural products that can be profitable without requiring hundreds or thousands of acres. We are looking at evolving marketing opportunities like those found on the Internet; Farmers Markets; and Direct marketing. We are looking at On-The- Farm activities that will allow us to be more involved in the community; provide agricultural experiences and education to more urban customers and to bring some or our urban skills into the mix, like Photography, Event Planning or Arts and Crafts. We are looking to sustain the Family in Lifestyle and Sustenance; providing an escape from our urban activities and a foundation that includes hard work for the younger generation. This Blog is intended to share our evolution with Family, Friends and Future Customers. Please check back often to see how we are doing and to share your comments on our activities. Join us in this new adventure called:
