ImaginAcres: Our Farm in the City

When people find out that we raise chickens and rabbits, tap our trees to make our own maple syrup, re-use food and yard waste through compost, and grow a plethora of herbs, fruit and vegetables, they always ask what part of the country we live in. When I tell them we live in the middle of the city, there are dozens of questions to be answered. I'm here today to answer those questions and show you what we're all about here. Follow me along on a tour of ImaginAcres!

Who we are:

I’m Meredith and my husband is Michael. We got married in the summer of 2013 on a beautiful farm. There were chickens and goats running around, a folk band to delight our guests, delicious food from local farms, and beer and wine made right on the farm. For our honeymoon, we took off to the Adirondacks for a camping trip where everything that could go wrong, did.

Mike and Meredith

Michael and I are both artists, writers, and teachers. He teaches English and Composition courses at a local university, and I teach art at an alternative school for at-risk youth in the city.
