About me

Location We live on the Eastern side of Washington State, in the rain shadow of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. The Valley is a desert land, brought to life by irrigation waters flowing from the mountains.
Introduction We are a family from the Yakima Valley in Washington State. We travel every week to bake breads and bring fruit and produce to the the "People of the Palouse" in Moscow, Idaho. This weekly migration is our family project. It make for a complex life-cycle. We work together, sell together, roll out our bed rolls with a lot of togetherness, then travel back home together, only to repeat it all again next weekend. In between the weekends, there is lots of work! Christine teaches childbirth classes and manages the home and family, which includes Kate, Trudy, Mercy, Charity, Emily, Christiana, and Noah. Also home when not at college are Annie and Peter. Sarah, Jane, and Hilary are living on their own now, but sometimes appear at the market to help, too.
