Update on the Smith Family Farm, by Michael Marsh (8/7/2011)

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

For the past two years, I have been the caretaker of my family’s farm 8 1/2 miles NW of McMinnville, Oregon along Baker Creek Road.  Since the Spring of 2010, the old family farmhouse has been rented out.  Now the farm is bustling in activity with dozens of free range chickens, an outdoor garden and a passing deer or two.  I think in 2012, the farm will be an Oregon Century Farm being in the family since at least 1912.
