Welcome to Our Home on the Web!
Guten tag, and welcome to the home page of Edelweiss Ranch in the beautiful pacific northwest!
This Ranch is not only our home, but also a long-term family project to become more self-sufficient. Our goal is to become less reliant on our society's commercialism. Through gardening, re-purposing, and raising animals for meat, milk, eggs and fiber, we hope to cut back on our carbon footprint. We strive to barter as much as possible: services, livestock, eggs and yields from the garden... all could be bartered.
Edelweiss Ranch is very committed to our community. We host public events through Meetup and Facebook, offering classes, workshops, tours, and even fun events like our annual Bunny Days! For more events, visit our Events page, and our Links page to check out the different Meetup groups associated with Edelweiss Ranch.
We have a big event coming up in April, our second Farm Barter Faire, co-hosted with Washington Farm Barter Network. We hope our community can benefit from the opportunities to swap, sell, buy, learn at demos, and especially- network!
Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you're a thousand miles from the corn field.
