Getting a little too close to the home made fire pit 🔥 . Today the girls are grumpy. We are waiting on their feed to come and it's wet and gloomy here.

I love this picture. It’s a blooper from an adventure with the family but today’s #❤️myfarm challenge is boots so I have a reason to post it! I love my boots! I have a pair specifically for working and adventures! They’re filthy and even when I clean them, they still show the wear and tear of hard work and fun times. They’re my favorite! . . @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @ccross26 . . . #gooutside #getoutside #explore #adventure #homestead #homesteading #optoutside #homesteadlife #thegreatoutdoors #boots #naturefamily #workboots #mudboots #exploremore #hikelife #familyadventure #outfam #farmher #wildandfree #gowildlyandslow #outfamcommunity #rainboots #momofteens #homemaker #homemaking #naturehood #takeahike #embracingtheseasons #simpleliving

Are you passing traditions on? Every year my mother made sugar cookies. Being the Queen of thrift she rolled the dough out as thin as possible to get the most cookies from it. She was also master of filling every last inch of dough with masterfully placed cookie cutters. Not much went to waste or, sadly, into my mouth. Then she would make a thin powdered sugar glaze and we would spread it over the cookies with a butter knife and add red, green, or multicolored sprinkles. The best part was if a cookie broke in the process... you got to eat it. A lot of cookies "broke".😉 My husband had a similar tradition in his home but his family made softer, plumper cookies. When we married I switched to making those type. I also changed to use a butter cream frosting. I let my kids decorate them as simple, fancy and sometimes 3D as they want. Even my 22 year old, home from college, joins in. The tradition may have changed slightly but it still lives on I can't wait to see what spin my kids may put on it when they have their own families.

We 💜 lavender! Lavender oil contains antioxidants, antimicrobial, sedative, calming & anti depressive properties. This plant history and it’s use go back at least 2,500 years. -( Dr. Axe fun facts): The Egyptians used lavender for mummification and as a perfume. In fact, when King Tut’s tomb was opened in 1923, there was said to be a faint scent of lavender that could still be detected after 3,000 years. -Early and modern aromatherapy texts advocate for lavender’s use as an antibacterial essential oil. The leaves and stems of the plant were used to prepare decoctions against digestive system diseases and rheumatism, and lavender was valued for its cosmetic purposes. -The Romans used lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. And in the Bible, lavender oil was among the aromatics used for anointing and healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Today, lavender oil benefits for your body include the following: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Improves mood & reduces stress • Protect against diabetes symptoms • Improve brain function • Help to heal burns and wounds • Improve sleep • Restore skin complexion and reduce acne • Slow aging with powerful antioxidants • Relieve pain • Alleviate headaches • Complimentary therapy for cancer • Assists w/treatments of head lice Life would be so different without the existence of this wonderful plant. How thankful we are for the creative design & existence of this beautiful & beneficial plant. A true gift to us earthlings. Can you see why we 💜 lavender? - - -“Life’s better with Lavender “- @lavenderbnbfarm - - - - -- How do you 💜 to use lavender in your life? - - - - - #lavenderbnbfarm #rural #ruralphotography #rural_love #rurallife #farmlife #farmlifestyle #hobbyfarm #lavenderoil #lavender #iamcountryside #iamamodernfarmer #farmstyle #sonoma #lifeouthere #sonomacounty #sonomavalley #farmher #sonomawinecountry #lovelavender #homesteaders #homesteadersofamerica #rootwillow 🐶 #homesteader #smallfarm #smallfarms #lavenderlove #countrylifestyle #countrylivingmag #country_stilllife

Mahoney joined us for a field trip to one of our favorite lavender farms the other day. He loved walking through the fields & enjoying the amazing aroma. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are planning to have our own beautiful lavender field. It would have to be fenced since all our animals love to eat it like candy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Until then we will enjoy this wonderful lavender.

Friday Night Work Flow • New batch of Flowerchild milk lotion. Since I small batch everything to control the quality better I make milk lotion on order. Between my farmgirl and I we use enough lotion that any leftover will never be wasted. So for those of you wondering if we have milk lotion the answer is a resounding yes! All the time. • The flowerchild blend is a bit of patchouli mixed with vetiver, lavender, and a couple other flowery scents. It is a sweet and spicy blend I’d say and currently my go to jar. • Oodles of soaps wrapped, lotions jarred, and waiting their ribbon and tags to head out with the Mr. tomorrow for delivery. • I am feeling incredibly overwhelmed with gratitude these days. . . . . #farmlife #handmade #soap #milk #lotion #milklotion #natural #skincare #jersey #cow #farmtobody #smallfarm #wisconsin #artisan #soapmaker #farmher #dirtyhandswarmheart #lovelandacresfarm

#FridayIntroductions ⠀ ⠀ We are Jeff and Ashley. Full time parents, full time farmers, full time workers off the farm and somewhere in there we are part time/hardly any time sleepers. ⠀ ⠀ We live for Spring and Summer on the farm (so much to do!) but are also happy when Fall and Winter roll around (hello exhaustion, bring on the down time!). ⠀ ⠀ We love to sit around and dream up future projects on the farm and if we can do it while cuddling a kiddo or two, we call that perfection. ⠀ ⠀ Our idea of a vacation is walking the property with the kids and making it ALL the way around WITHOUT having to turn around due to unforeseen circumstances (read: hangry, potty issues, tantrums, fighting, general mayhem). 🤷‍♀️ ⠀ Our idea of a wild night is having a glass of wine AND dessert (party animals ladies and gents, right here! 😉).⠀ ⠀ Our hilarious parenting moment as of late was learning that our daughter (she’s 2 going on 30) thinks our dog’s name is “Shut up.” It’s Hank, in case you’re wondering. 🤦‍♀️ #ProudParentMoment #GottaWatchWhatWeSay ⠀ ⠀ Also in case you're wondering, I am indeed holding "hands" with one of our 🐓 in this picture cause that's how we roll for family picture moments. 😜 ⠀ Hope you’ve enjoyed reading a little randomness about us. ⠀ Have a great weekend all! From, #OurFarmToYou

Tis the season of King Trumpets. I’m not growing a lot of these. Mostly for market and small (very small) orders. I won’t have shiitake again for a bit due to space. I’ll try to throw some more in there again here and there. But if you haven’t seen the process shiitakes go through before they fruit indoors, just know it’s about a two month waiting period :( which means holding space is limited:( soon I’ll have some more space freed up. I inoculate all of my blocks in my lab. I only out source my spawn. I’m a 1 woman show most days so bare with me as I juggle the supply and demand of certain varieties! And as always I’m so grateful for everyone that does support this U.S veteran mushroom Lady!! Stay with us! Watch us grow!

So this happened today. Clementine got bred back, a month later than I hoped, but she is bred. I was also able to open our own account with the breeder since we have a nice little herd coming up and one girl down the road to get home after she calves next month. The cool thing about this is being more in the genetic loop of things. I may not be large but I have definite goals I want to meet and that takes being as informed as I can for my girls. . . . . #farmlife #jersey #cow #breeding #feelingofficial #smallfarm #dairy #wisconsin #farmher #dirtyhandswarmheart #lovelandacresfarm

As a chicken owner and backyard farmer, do you ever feel a bit out of place in "regular society"? It's even weirder when you have an entire business about it (I know some of you are nodding your heads right now). . The rest of the world hasn't quite yet gotten our secret that chickens make AWESOME companion pets! (Although, we're planning publicity events this year to get the word out). . Tonight, my daughter has a Christmas play/sing a long/pageant at her school, and I'm dreading it because I know people are going to ask me what I do - and then I get that look of disbelief and sometimes pity. . Let's just say, it's awkward. I'm bringing donuts to get through it. And I might just bring a bantam with me for moral support. . This guy has festive "hair", right? . . #homesteading #homesteadlife #growsomethinggreen #chickens #backyardchickens #gardeningwithchickens #frugalchicken #rspets #realsimple #hgtv #sustainableliving #farmher #missourilife #missourigirl #missouriphotographer #missouriphotos #missouriblogger #midwestmoment #midwestgirl #familyfarm #gardenher #nogmo #butlercounty

We’ve received four (4!) orders today from four different stores...and I had to tell them all sorry, we cannot fill your order 😭😭⁣ ⁣ As a small business owner, turning away business goes against nature. You cannot make money if you do not sell something. ⁣ ⁣ But as a farmer, it feels good. It feels good to know that you’re making the right decisions for your farm and your herd, for where you are today. Will we always have an “off season,” I don’t know. But right now, we do. ⁣ ⁣ We’re using this time to button up farm projects that inevitably have fallen by the wayside, as most things do, when cheese is involved. We’re studying and researching better ways to package our chevre so that it not only extends the life of the product, but hopefully, it’s better for the environment too. We’re dreaming and scheming up another cheese to add to our lineup...something that is extra special...something that is uniquely ours.⁣ ⁣ We’re using this time to recharge and reinvest in not just this dream, but our other dreams too. ⁣ ⁣ Matthew has been working on a song he wrote for me almost two years’s already magical in my eyes, but he thinks he can do better. And so hopefully this off season will afford him some time to commit to his music. ⁣ ⁣ And I’ve been toying around with the idea of writing...not just a blog post...but a book. A real live book. Perhaps this time is just the kick in the pants I need...⁣ ⁣ So even though we can’t fill most cheese orders right now I am positive that greatness awaits us on the other side. ⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #goatdairy #offseason #dontknockthehustle #beinspired #entrepreneur #smallbusinessowner #smallbusiness #smallbiz #farmer #farmher #getit #bigdreams #dontquityourdaydream #nogoatsnoglory #goat #winter #cheese #cheesedreams #sweetdreamsaremadeofcheese

How'd the Wise Men know where to find the baby Jesus? Matthew 2:2 says they saw his star 🌟 Jesus is still a star in our lives guiding us through this life. I believe we also have many other stars throughout our life guiding us! Two farmers pictured here have been stars for me. It has been said we have too many farmers in the family...meaning we have plenty of differing opinions!

Yesterday I had a little road trip back to Iowa to drop off a cattle hide to the tannery. I always like when I have a moment to actually visit that little shop filled with passionate guys, it really keeps me fired up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also had a chance to catch up with my good friend Amber owner of @backcountrywinery . After college Amber and her husband Preston bought a farmette and began converting it into a tasting room, event space and vineyard. It's been incredible to watch these two build this place into something so beautiful and it's always a special treat to stock up on some of my favorites for the holiday season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The simple pleasure of sipping on a friend's wine while sitting by the fire is sure to keep me dreaming of what's next for Homestead. Get this wine carrier in the shop.

First seed order in. 😁 At one point I promised myself that I was only going to try 3 new varieties a year. 🤣 To try something new you need to know the growing instructions, the harvesting stage, the right temp of water to cut into, the post harvest handling and a variety of other things. In the thick of summer that is sometimes just too much info to handle. But I just can't help myself. I get excited to bring new, interesting, and exciting textures and blooms into your lush bouquets and arrangements. ❤ Unique, like you. ❤ . . #livingstoneacres #flowerfarmer #supportlocal #buylocal #laclabiche #albertagrown #canadiangrown #embracebeauty #farmerflorist #farmher

Every year we try and make a few goodies for the people closest to us. 🍪 This year we decided on baked goods...mostly cause I like to bake when it's cold outside, and baked goods are great on the checkbook. Yesterday we tried our first test run of gingerbread cookies 😋 🍪 I'm not sure these will make it into the baskets but boy did we have fun making some memories and encouraging the girls to give from their hearts instead of their pockets. . . . . . #homemadegoodies #iamcountryside @iamcountryside #christmastreats #homesteader #homesteadmom #homesteadfamily #homesteadersofinstagram #modernhomesteader #experiencesoverthings #instagramhomesteaders #homesteadinglife #homesteader #minifarm #farmlifestyle #simplelifehappylife #farmher #farmstead #farmlove #christmascookies #christmasonabudget

Lots of new faces here so sorry guys another #fridayintroductions ! We are the Pierce Family & together we are the heart and soul of Pierce Family Livestock. Our kids put in work as well, whether it's helping feed, water or just plain waiting for us or not attending an event because - the cows need to be fed- or whatever. We also have laying hens, kids job to care for them, mulefoot/Berkshire pigs and a couple hayburners. Er um I mean horses. We do most things as a family. Most of the time it's great & we are thankful so be on this adventure together. Sometimes it's a lot and then the kids get to take a weekend trip to the grandparents so we can refresh. I often wonder what Ma Ingalls did alone on the prairie?? Anyone else? Oh and also farm fact Friday: Coyotes are PESTS! That's all I have this week it's been a long day maybe next weeks fact will be more educational. Happy weekend! #farmfactfriday #beeffarmer #grassfedbeef #family #smallbusiness #ag #farmher

👋🏻 Hi. I’m Lucie. It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself. My husband and I live on a hobby farm in southern Minnesota with our two young boys. We raise chickens, grow vegetables, run a pumpkin patch called The Little Green Wagon - and are always working on our 1890 farmhouse.⠀ .⠀ Each year it seems we add a bit more to our homestead - trying to build a more sustainable lifestyle. I love this community here on Instagram to share the bits I have learned about our farm and motherhood - and to connect and learn from YOU. ⠀ .⠀ I get asked on a regular basis why I don’t have a blog yet or when I plan to start one. Truth be told - as much as I share my personal stories on Instagram, a blog makes me feel wayyyy more vulnerable - and that is SCARY.⠀ .⠀ Over the past few months I have been really giving it some serious thought though, and with some sweet nudges from this community here, I’ve decided to take the leap 🙈.⠀ .⠀ I hope you’ll join me in the blogosphere (is that what the kids are calling it these days?) as I share the tips I’ve learned over the past 6 years on raising chickens and farm kids, growing our own food, living a natural lifestyle, and bits and pieces of my heart. Click the link in my bio to follow along with 💚 #newblogger #fridayintroductions #thelittlegreenwagon

This morning I cried over spilt milk. I cried over spilt milk and a temper lost. I cried over my pride and vanity. I cried over my perfect vision interrupted by a goat's kick of a pail. Then, I wallowed in those tears and spilt milk a few moments. You see, Wild and Free is hosting a fun celebration for those attending the Frisco conference. By posting a pic of the souvenir ticket on certain dates you receive gifts. Fun, right? Well, it's always fun till a goat steps in your pail of milk. I'd envisioned a curated picture of me milking Sugar and my ticket against the pail for today's post....except I sort of needed a third hand. I didn't have a third hand, nor any common sense at this point. Trying to hold my phone from above for just the right angle and still have one hand in milking position, Sugar decided she'd had enough of my tomfoolery and put a stop to any further photo ops. You can't make predictions with livestock, yet I knew even as I planned this out that it would end badly. I knew and still had the audacity to lose my temper and say things I didnt mean when things didn't go according to plan. Sigh. I had compared myself to other pictures in this play along celebration and I lost. No, it's not a competition. I mean that I lost myself in the vanity and pride of trying to have just the right pic. It is said comparison is the thief of joy, and rightfully so. After those brief few moments of bruised ego and ugly feelings I had a good laugh at myself. I hope you do as well. Will I still play along in the celebratory game? Of course! But, no more milking pictures. I promise. 😂🐐🐐🐐 #jolly_acres_farms #goats #dairygoats #spiltmilk #wildandfreefrisco #microfarm #smallscalefarming #sustainable #bosslady #farmher #dfwtx #attitudeofgratitude

We’ve been having some crazy weather here in Michigan. It’s hard to imagine Christmas is right around the corner when the days have been 45 F and sunny 🌞 Copper doesn’t seem to mind that there isn’t any snow though. Copper and the 2 other bucks he resides with have been loving this sunshine and being able to eat grass until their hearts are content. • As for me, I’m thoroughly hoping for at least 2 feet of snow by Christmas Eve.

Arugula is one of those foods that burns its antioxidants at a rapid rate after harvest, losing much of its nutritional benefit. I can definitely taste this in my arugula. It has a fiery kick for the first few days after I cut it, but it mellows out after a week in the fridge. Other foods that rapidly respire are those in the brassica family (mustards, kale, broccoli, Brussels), spinach, mushrooms, lettuce, and asparagus. (Info from Jo Robinson.) Buy these fresh from a farmer if you can, or better yet, grow them yourself! #arugula #farmher 📸 @fork_spoon_nashville

Farm life isn’t easy. Last night, a mink or something got into our closed coop somehow and killed six chickens, including some that were going to start laying eggs any day (after we’ve poured money into feeding them organically since they were chicks). And my favorite duck, my fatty Perkin who waddled behind everyone, died earlier this week (got old). . . So we just spent money at the feed store for chicken feed and had to buy eggs too. 😩 All my farming friends know the value of eggs, so you don’t see us whining when real eggs are “expensive.” To raise chickens in a non-factory setting, it’s expensive. There’s loss. There are seasons. . . But we keep going. I’m looking forward to new chicks and ducklings this spring. And I’m gonna finally buy myself geese like I’ve been wanting to do for years. ❤️ . . . #farmher #farmlife #homesteadlife #homesteadhappenings #lifeonthefarm #thestorybehindthepicture #ducksofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #organicfarming #pasturedeggs #unfactoryfarm

Bros before Does. Delaney and Sunday are the only does we are not breeding because they are about 10 months old and not full grown. Harvey and Cash seem to be OK with that at this particular moment.
