James has been mastering his craft of blacksmithing for over 25 years and Cheryl has been named the Garlic Queen. Together, the unique dynamic duo leads a homesteading facility that offers people the opportunity to step away from their busy lives and expand their knowledge base about sustainable farming and craft.
