The Overstreet Family
This picture is of Roy and Helen Stevens, the owners of the farm, and Doug's great aunt and uncle. They have since passed away, but their spirit lives on through the name Helen gave the farm - 'IDLEWILD'.
A few years back we moved to Doug's hometown, Bedford, and onto the family farm. His dad gave us a small flock of hens and a rooster and we plowed up the backyard for garden space. The next seasons of growing plants and raising animals provided a never-ending classroom. We learned what worked and what didn't quickly. Perhaps the most important thing we learned was that great food comes from caring for the land, and this we do wholeheartedly, on a daily basis. We found that taking care of the soil and its many inhabitants is the best place to start. Come out and join us in our journey of farming. We enjoy visitors on the farm. Please call first.
