US (MO): Local couple has over 300 species in their property Mountain Jewel

Wren Haffner and Ini Giesbrecht of Gainesville own the property Mountain Jewel in the Ozark Plateau bioregion, Bryant Creek watershed, along Caney Creek of FF Highway. 

They own eighteen acres but actively cultivate around three of them. "We have about a quarter-acre of intensive cultivation, including a high tunnel filled with warm-season annuals and perennials. 

It has taken a lot of rock removal and soil building to be able to grow food here on our rocky ridgetop. Our rock piles get bigger every year, but so do our yields! 

We lay out mounded permanent beds 2 feet wide with 1-foot pathways. Here we grow the bulk of the annuals we eat and put up, like potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, beans, squash, sweet potatoes, etc."
