Stuart Kunkle farmed in Oregon, Alaska and Montana before bringing it all to Michigan in 2008. He received his Permaculture Design Certificate from Lost Valley Educational Center in Dexter, Oregon in 2007. He is the big muscle in our operation and is involved in all major building/renovation projects. He brings enthusiastic discovery to all of the farm ventures–executing projects and doing deep research. His favorite animals on the farm are Domino the mini horse, Mary the bottle-fed lamb, Fern–the giant sow, and each of the English Shepherds–Rosie, Jack, Chloe, and soon–Toby.
