The Schierman boys have created a man-made wildlife habitat with a diverse planting of thousands of trees, ponds, perennials, and large gardens with over 50 years of planting on 35 acres. The property is growing into an educational permaculture park, with a 30x96' high tunnel greenhouse, more gardens, nut and fruit trees, aquaculture and mushroom farming planned for spring 2019. Along with the farm tour, the Schiermans also offer photography and sightseeing tours on the back roads of the Palouse.
