Huckleberry Farming

Here are photos for the Inlander of Joe Culbreth, who is tryinf to grow sellable huckleberries at his farm in Rathdrum, Idaho and a few of the huckleberries that have grown so far this year. Culbreth states that the huckleberries are not quite ready for sale as the flavor is more tart than those that are harvested in the wild. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/natures-enigma/Content?oid=2826884

Here’s an extra photo from a story about McLane Farms, near Coeur d’Alene, ID. They had different things going on at the farm, including vegetables, pigs, cows and chickens, of which there are plenty of pictures. But, I liked photographing the goats and sheep as they were the friendliest and interacted with the farmers the most. The story and additional photos are at http://www.inlander.com/spokane/full-circle/Content?oid=2530384
