Farmville: Capitol Hill apartment manager goes grange

“There’s poo everywhere.”

In one of the more random mainstream media interviews you’ll ever encounter, former Capitol Hill apartment manager Dave Stanley talks about his decision to give up city life and make his way as a farmer in unincorporated Thurston County. We can’t say there’s a lot to learn here. But, if you’ve been thinking about making a change, consider Stanley’s new agrarian existence your inspiration:

“I feel better about myself knowing that the animals that I’m eating are raised here and there’s no factory farming involved. That’s why I don’t have a problem with the slaughter, so much. I don’t find it fun but it doesn’t disgust me because I know they had a really good life, and just one bad day at the end.”

Dave can make you the freshest ham and cheese sandwich you’ll ever eat.

“I make my own cheese. I make Wisconsin brick. I made gouda, cheddar, fromage blanc. I make my own bread. I have a grinder. I grind my own wheat seeds so I can make some wheat. I just started up with sour dough.”
