Andre Moise and Dreatha Thompson say "We have a market garden growing vegetables,herbs and flowers and we also sell sheep, eggs, chicken, pork, beef and firewood. "We do a lot of our farm, bush and garden work with horses. We also raise and train colts and when ready sell them to other homesteaders." Each weekend Andre and Dreatha can be seen driving a pair of draft horses to the local dump.
