The Sandy Ridge Farm Brings Back a Simpler Way of Living
by Linda Sechrist
At Touhill’s Sandy Ridge Farm, in Doylestown, the two-legged and four-legged residents all have purposeful work to do. The goats clear the brush; the chickens help prepare the ground for planting by eating grubs and insects that are bad for crops; the sheep keep the grass mowed; dad wears lots of hats; and mom home schools the kids, with the age-appropriate ones helping where they are needed. “Even the miniature donkey does his share by looking cute and greeting visitors to our farm market,” says Shawn Touhill.
