White Pine Farm is a five-acre suburban homestead in Ithaca, New York. Our house is passive solar and our primary heat source is a wood-based masonry stove. We also have a solar hot water heater and solar photovoltaic panels, which produce 97% of our electricity needs. We currently have 14 laying chickens, 8 Navajo Churro sheep, a big garden (48′ by 48′), small orchard, and in-progress berry patch (currants, gooseberries, and two pathetic blueberry plants).
