From the Syracuse Post-Standard:
Lebanon, NY -- Amy Yahna and Brian Musician are writing their own definition of living off the land.
They built a farmhouse in the town of Lebanon using local bales of straw as insulation and timber they dragged from their forest with horses. Their bathtub is an old watering trough for cows...
They make their living growing organic crops and selling them through a community-supported agriculture operation -- customers pay up front to buy a share of the farm's harvest.
Their greenhouses are home to gourmet salad greens. Soon, the greens will make way for heirloom tomatoes.
Does it work? At a winter farmers' market last month, they sold 35 pounds of salad greens in less than an hour.
The home is stylish as well as sustainable.
