We Bought the Farm


We finally got the farm of our dreams and even if our timing was off for this jump shot, our hearts were in the jump.

June, July and August are the dry months here in Indonesia. This gave us plenty of time to get our farmland ready for planting.The progress on the property began with clearing of trees and laying out the land for our coffee and chocolate plantings as well as the cabins, facilities, roads, paths and windbreaks.The trees we removed are being used to build our cabin and storage facility.





The soil tests we took were very positive. Perfect PH for coffee.

I am sure this great dirt will translate into great coffee. I think anything would grow here. hmmm what else should we plant?

Anyone have any money tree seeds??
