For decades I’ve lived in Virginia’s piedmont on a farm that’s been in my family for 70 years. Even with half a lifetime of wandering these 250 acres of fields and forested hillsides, I am still constantly surprised by the variety of life found in the landscape. No matter what scale – from the microscopic to the panographic – it’s abundance is astonishing.
This site is an attempt to document as many of the different forms of life as possible within the farm’s boundaries. Nothing too technical, just natural history at its most basic.
