For the second year in a row, the folks at Slow Food St. Louis have been generous enough to award us with grant funding. Last year we used the proceeds to help cover the costs of soil amendments, heirloom seeds, and poultry. This year, we're very excited to use the grant money to help support our newest endeavor: raising squab! We sourced three Texan Pioneer breeding pairs and brought them to live at the homestead last week. They're beautiful, sustainable birds and we're very pleased to be adding them to our farm.
