In our never-ending quest to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our health, my hubby Jason Trimm and I moved to Holy Terror Farm, an 1883 80-acre homestead in a hidden river valley near Paonia, Colorado. April 2010 was the last official day we went to the grocery store. We do have some exceptions for coffee, salt, chocolate and olive oil.
We try to be as self-sufficient as possible – growing and raising almost all our own food. We raise acres of chemical-free veggies and nuts, Scottish Highland beef cows, rare-breed egg and meat chickens, pastured pigs, and have livestock guardian dogs to protect from our many predators.
We grow all winter in our hoophouse, and preserve all the summer goodies by freezing, drying, canning, salt-curing, smoking, and storing in the root cellar. We sell any excess goodies to area restaurants.
We do most the soil preparations for gardens by hand and with our pigs, rotate our cows daily, use our chickens to fertilize and clean the orchards, save all our own seed, grow our own hay, render lard for oil and fat, make our own cheese, butter, lard, and tallow.
After being diagnosed with “terminal” brain cancer in 2013, she has used her FARM-acy to restore her health and stop the tumors from “cancering”. Since then, she has stopped eating her farm fruits and honey, has been growing and raising all her ketogenic diet food items on their farm. She and her Dr. Nasha Winters, of Optimal Terrain Consulting, have worked together to create a customized diet and treatment plan to conquer her cancer and restore her wellness. Dr. Winters is accepting new patients – contact for a virtual appointment and customized treatment plan for your body, your cancer, and your health.

Camps are held at the farm or she may travel to your location. Follow her journey on her Cooking to Conquer Cancer Facebook Page. Not only is she alive, but she is thriving with her new-found health.
