Backyard farmers

By necessity

Self-sufficient & debt-free

“People can really take care of themselves if they’re willing to do the work.” ~ Myrna Fincher

When Myrna and Earl Fincher married in 1958 they started farming their yard “out of necessity.” 

Today, the Finchers make a living selling their organic produce to restaurants and at the local farmers’ market twice a week for much of the year.

They had no experience as farmers, but learned by trial and error. In a 2008 interview, then 71-year-old Earl said “Life is a constant time of learning if we have an open and inquisitive mind.”
