"Small Family Farms are at the foundation of healthy communities. When we strengthen small family farms we strengthen communities!"
      - Susie Kyle, Founder, Winlock Meadows Farm

Driving Quote Behind the Farm:
"Agriculture is the foundation of modern civilization. Without a steady supply of clean, life-giving food, we have neither the leisure nor the energy to develop industry, science or art. Worldwide and in particular in the United States, our foundation has deteriorated dangerously. It requires immediate and fundamental restructuring……the need to share the experience of farming with everyone who understands that our relationship with nature and the ways that we use the land will determine the future of the earth. The problems of agriculture and the environment belong not just to a small minority of active farmers; they are the problems of all humanity, and thousands of people are searching for new ways and new solutions.”
      - Farms of Tomorrow, by Trauger Groh and Steven McFadden

Winlock Meadows Farm is a farm of tomorrow providing new ways and new solutions.

The Power & Magic Behind Commitment
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative (and creation). There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas & splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforseen incidents & meetings & material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power & magic in it. Begin it now."
      - Goethe

"I encourage everyone to find what they are passionate about. Then make the commitment to pursue it, regardless of whether it appears possible or not. Actually once the commitment is made don't try to figure out the details of how it is going to happen. I've found it's best to "get out of the way" and let providence do the work. If we live out of what we are committed to, not our fears, worries, concerns, insecurities, perceived limitations, etc. our life takes on a whole new experience...a jolly adventure you could say. What if we all lived lives of jolly adventures - what would our world look like!"
      -Susie Kyle, Farmer
