Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome to Ponyland Farm, a small, woman-owned permaculture farm. My name is Kari King and I am farming outside Pony, Montana on family land where pesticides haven’t been used in over two decades. I practice permaculture, sustainable and regenerative growing practices, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, use natural soil enhancement, recycled materials, and source local products as much as possible. I personally do all planting, growing, and harvesting by hand without machines or mechanization.
My first commercial products are a range of heirloom garlic varieties. In the coming year I will have free range chicken eggs, and in Spring 2018; Nigerian Dwarf kids and goat milk products. Native heirloom trees have been planted in an orchard nursery, and will yield apples, plums, and cherries. I will be raising and breeding miniature donkeys and Maremma, livestock guardian dogs that hail from Italy, starting in the spring of 2017.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. -John Muir
