Why "Ink Blot Farm"?

Updated: May 25, 2023

When we first moved onto the property, we had no clue what we would call our farm. We wanted something that embodied what we hope to get out of the farm but the ideas were endless. We went round and round for several months throwing out ideas and shooting them down or simmering on them for way to long when clearly it wasn't the right fit. Then, Kurt threw out Ink Blot Farm.

At first, I (Kyria) was uncertain about it. I thought it was unique and interesting but couldn't quite figure out how did this name represented what we hope our farm brings to us and our community. After a few days of thinking about it and Kurt doing more explaining, I was on board.

So, why Ink Blot Farm? We chose this name because it embodies EXACTLY what we want out of this homestead. Kurt described his vision for the logo as a Rorschach ink blot that included the animals we wanted to raise on our farm. From there, the idea just continued to build. For those of you who don't know what a Rorschach ink blot is, it's basically an ink blot that different people can see different things within (it's used in psychology to test personalities, but that's not super important). The important thing is that everyone sees something different within them. That's what we want out of our farm. We want to have a collection of animals, people, plants, and resources at our fingertips that help us share ideas with our community and, in turn, help them become more independent. Whether that independence comes from something as simple as learning new ideas or finding more food security by growing your own food, we want to aid you on that journey.

The idea is that just like an ink blot, we want people to make our farm whatever they want for themselves. You want to learn how to garden? Great! You want to learn how to raise sheep? Awesome! This will be a place of discovery and growth for all. Is there something you can offer to the community but maybe don't have the space or platform to get it out? We can help with that too. Our goal is that by helping ourselves, we can in turn take that knowledge and help others too. So, just like a Rorschach ink blot, our farm is what you make of it.
