Those of you who were with me last winter know that our first lambing season was not a graceful one. Early lambs, a record cold winter, and inexperienced farmers meant more heartache than we could bear. By February I had... Continue reading

Ive never read anything saying that high fat is an issue in broth. Ours are quite fatty and store beautifully. Hope that helps, Emma!

Why would deer bones be unsafe in WI? Because of CWD? I think you would need to consider what zone you are hunting in but CWD-safe should be okay. (Unless Im missing something.)

If you asked me what our family's most important, most healing, most nourishing food is I would answer without hesitation. Bone broth. Rich, long-simmered, nutrient-rich bone broth. I make a batch weekly and we drink it by the mug-full, cook... Continue reading

I kicked my caffeine addiction slowly the first time and abruptly the second. I started mixing my coffee, 1/4 decaf, then 1/2 then finally it was all but decaf. Maybe that would work so you could keep the comfort of the coffee but reduce the effect. Just an idea... SO glad you love our EO blends, too. We wouldn't be without them.

A package arrived at our farm a few days ago. Inside was the promise of a brand new farm flock. These little lovelies? They are Coturnix quail, a domestic quail kept for eggs, meat, and milk. (No, silly. Not milk!... Continue reading

Sometimes I wish I could just ignore everything and spend the entire day sewing. No cooking, no laundry, no dishes. Just cutting, sewing, and creating. Because after a day like that? I'm a better person. More centered, more patient, more... Continue reading

It is! We usually still have snow on and off through March or even into April. This year I thought not. I was so wrong.

It was a gorgeous and gardeny-sort of weekend. Right up until the weather turned. There was compost to haul, seeds to start, eggs to incubate (more on that another time), and and plans to make. A neighbor called, curious about... Continue reading

Ha! We did. I hated them and gave them away. They are so unbearably loud. That being said, we don't pick up ticks near the house and barn - just down in the fields and woods. That's me talking myself out of trying Guineas again.

Contrary to popular opinion, you don't need a bucket-full of ducklings to have a magical spring celebration. Okay, I know. There is no popular opinion of the sort. Well then, you don't need a bucket- (or basket-) full of chocolate,... Continue reading
