About the Acre

Welcome to the Acre of Independence, a small family-owned farm in Woodbury, Connecticut. The Acre of Independence is more than just a farm though, and this isn’t just another website (we promise!). This is about a former military family’s second act as farmers and homesteaders. Follow along with us as we try to make the most of everything we have. There will be pics and discussions about the farm and its activities of course. But we’ll also share helpful hints about gardening, beekeeping, managing poultry, preserving foods, and home brewing. And we’ll try to make it all approachable and a whole lot of fun, too.  So welcome again to the Acre of Independence, we hope you stay around for awhile!

  1. I see you are a fan of home brewing? There is nothing better than a bottle of well brewed beer, especially if you are the one who crafted it. Cheers.

  2. Huge fan of the blog. I thought you guys would be interested in this. I did not know if Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story, about bailing out wall street and big banks, would be an interesting topic for the blog…at least he’s going after AIG
