About Me

Update: We have moved on from the farm. Ok to contact our parents via Squash Blossom Farm if you need a place to stay; they are more into wwoofing these days and might want you to do a farm chore.


Three cows. Three hundred chickens.


Sisters. Last fall, our parents bought a farm. We left Bogota and Chicago and came home to help out. Cadence is raising cows, chickens, ducks, and geese; Sara collects the nettles.


Working on it. Right now, it's seeming like stuff is amazingly interconnected, and like figuring out the connections is a satisfying use of life energy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Cadence slept on Sara's couch in Chicago.
