Just received 10 pounds of a new favorite...Nyarusiza, a direct trade green cofee from Rwanda. This bean is from Bufcoffee, a small co-op of farmers in Karaba. It was started by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a window who learned how to produce coffee to help raise her 7 children. It's also delicious and will be available next Saturday at the Cortez Farmer's Market. Contact me for special orders. What's the story behind your coffee? Roasting in McElmo Canyon this week!! . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #whereyoushopmatters #directtrade #supportsmallfarmers #coffee #coffeesnob #homeroaster #mindfulness #Behmor @delafincacoffee

Local! You may have noticed the tops of my sourdough breads have a pink or purple tint. That comes from our locally grown and milled Blue Corn meal from Bow & Arrow. Bow & Arrow is owned by the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe who uses state-of-the-art sustainability practices to produce award-winning non-GMO corn. I use it to dust my loaves to prevent sticking (well, I also cook & bake with it). . . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #swcolorado #fourcorners #sourdough #chocolatesourdough #supportlocal #shoplocal #utemountainutetribe #bowandarrow #cortez #cortezfarmersmarket #farmersmarket

Our new beds have arrived and we now have 27 sq. metres of growing space in the vegetable garden. We plan to add another three beds taking us to 40.5 sq metres. 🍅 The addition of raised beds has allowed us to turn this area of very compacted soil and clay into a viable growing space. I'm so glad we decided to move the veggie patch from our back yard to the front, if we hadn't I fear that this area would have stood bare for years and possibly for the entirety of our time on the property. 🍄 We're celebrating our new beds with a Permablitz on Saturday 29 June to turn these empty beds into a food growing oasis. "What's a Permablitz?" you ask, think backyard blitz but with permaculture principles and lots of friends and family. 🍋 We'll be creating layered no dig beds utilising manure, pea straw, newspaper, grass clippings and vegetable scraps. It will be a chance for us to work together as a community, share knowledge, skills and a hot soup lunch. Our friends and family are welcome to wander the property and see how we're implementing permaculture principles into the design of our property. 🍆 PM me if you'd like to join us and I'll send through the details. #homeharvestco #honeygumacreage #permaculture #permaculturedesign #permablitz #raisedbeds #smallfarm #farmlet #vegetable #vegetablegarden #veggiepatch #allotment #homegrownfood #growwhatyoueat #growyourown #eatlocal #buylocal #farmlife #farmstays #homestay #bnb #countrylife #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #smallholding #acreage #treechange

#❤️myfarm #farmlife random farm shots for today’s theme: the turkeys are growing up, the goats are beginning to be dried off so there will be no more milk for things like Greek yogurt soon😢, and that darn rooster continues to lure his ladies into plantings I’d rather they not scratch up, and @leah_sheets drew me a farm logo! You know, just another day on the farmlet. #farmlet #minifarm #backyardfarm #turkeys #goatmilk #yogurt #rooster

You can get a loaf this Saturday at the Cortez Farmer's Market (730-1130am)...or by special order (message me!!).

Chicken bath!! Elaine had some unwelcome freeloaders that needed to be evicted. Being an old lady hen she's more suspeptable to mites and her immune system might not be strong enough to fight them off. At first I was embarrassed to share that my hen had mites but I've since learned they're quite common...and not necessarily due to poor housekeeping. As a matter of fact, the mites are most often delivered via wild birds. Well, we've got lots of those! The coop has been cleaned again and I'll be dousing it with apple cider vinegar and water through one of those garden hose sprayers. The chicken dust bath areas have fresh diatamateous earth added. Hopefully, the bath have the old girl some instant relief (even if she's a little mad at me). The last photo shows some of the eggs and irritated skin near her wing. . . #mutinyranch #chickens #farmlife #farmlet #backyardchickens #chickenspa #chickenbathing

Hello Miss Lizzy! 🐓 🌿 This gorgeous white sussex joined our farm family last night. We've adopted Lizzy and two of her hen friends from our lovely friend Em and we're excited to see them settle in to their new digs. 🌿 The addition of chooks brings us one step closer to realising our vision for growing and raising quality food for our family and creating a farmstay experience where friends and friends we haven't met yet can enjoy a taste of country life. 🌿 #homeharvestco #honeygumacreage #chickens #sussex #chickencoop #chickenrun #chooks #permaculturedesign #smallfarm #farmlet #freerangefarming #freerangefarm #homegrownfood #growwhatyoueat #growyourown #eatlocal #buylocal #farmlife #farmstays #homestay #bnb #countrylife #autumn #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #smallholding #acreage

She's complete! Last week I sat down with a cup of tea and drafted plans for our chook coop. 🐓 We already had the timber chook house but we needed a larger fox proof run and also to connect the two together. So I created a simple 3x3m run, building four frames and screwing them together, added timber across the top, painted the frame a fresh white, enclosed the frame in apiary wire and shade cloth for the roof. Then I built a door, and hung it with my son, husband and father in law. Then we joined the chicken run to the main house with a chicken tunnel. Three generations working together to build something special to raise our chooks in. 🐣 🐔 As a family we're creating a healthy environment to raise our children in, one based around a connection to nature and our food sources. 👬 #homeharvestco #honeygumacreage #chickens #chickencoop #chickenrun #chooks #permaculturedesign #smallfarm #farmlet #freerangefarming #freerangefarm #homegrownfood #growwhatyoueat #growyourown #eatlocal #buylocal #farmlife #farmstays #homestay #bnb #countrylife #autumn #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #smallholding #acreage

#❤️myfarm What’s in my egg basket? A few missing eggs, sadly. Oprah, the Australorp, who often wandered off alone (she never seemed to fully integrate with the flock and, seriously, got too much attention from the rooster) has disappeared along with her creamy brown egg contribution. Then, during a recent night when I forgot to finish closing up, something not only took my drake, but injured a duck hen who died yesterday. I’m not 100% sure it happened the night I didn’t lock up since I didn’t count heads the next morning (the ducks are the ones that often stay outside if I don’t put them to bed so they would be first prey), but the alternative is worse: a daylight attack. It is one of the reasons I most struggle to leave my animals in anyone else’s care. I know how fallible I am (forgetting that chicken door despite all my caution), so how can I expect someone else to not make mistakes? Being a math teacher, something I learned and worked to communicate this year is that brain growth doesn’t really happen with success; it happens neurologically when we make mistakes. I’m really ok with that in math class, but mistakes in animal care are far too life and death. May has been far too full; it will be good to be done with school for the summer and get my head on straight. I think it’s time to set a repeating alarm to remind me each night to lock up. @the_red_barn_farm #farmlet #minifarm #backyardfarm #eggs #chickens #ducks #animalcare #farmlife #responsibility

Die-hard Roasting. You probably can't tell but it's raining buckets right now. It's also 43 degrees. I'm also out of fresh homeroasted coffee and we have gads of RV friends set to arrive this weekend. So I think I need a lot of coffee. But, brrrrr!! This is "supposed" to be the last of the rain for at least a week. I sure do hope so. All of us have been saying "but we need the moisture"... well I'm finally saying "enough already...at least for a month, okay?!". . . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #swcolorado #fourcorners #cortez #coffee #coffeesnob #homeroaster #homeroasted #behmor #freshroasted

Sometimes it's the little things, the small accomplishments, that help propel us forward. Yeah, we have a lot to do around here but taking a little time to create a small "fairy" garden was so fun and instantly rewarding. We'll slowly add more flowers and do-dads (mostly after these storms pass!!). But for now I can't help but smile whenever I walk past it.

Little hennies getting a treat of overgrown Chard 💜 (not kale as first advertised, haha)The gate is open so they have free range of the backyard (except the garden!) but they came running for this. Also Phyllis Diller the Polish Crested has dirty bangs LOL! Anyone else have to wash their chicken's bangs? 😁 #farmlet #backyardchickens

Let's play "Are You My Mom"? Photo 1: Our wee one hatched on our farm. Photo 2: Wee one sitting on "mom's" back. Leeloo hatched the egg and COULD be the real mom (aka egg layer). She lays brown eggs. Photo 3: Dad!! No question about it, Heckle IS the father (best read in a Maury Povich voice). The chick inherited his blackish legs and feathered feet. Photo 4: Shelia...and Australorpe who also lays brown eggs. Photo 5: Red Girl/Girlfriend. One of 3 identical Brown Leghorns we have. They lay brown eggs. Photo 6: Chessy...looking a little ragged as someone has been bullying her. She's a Rhode Island Red who lays brown eggs. Photo 7: Ida (or Ruby). We have 2 of these bearded ladies. They're Amerucanas but they lay blue/green eggs and can NOT be the mom. Not pictured are J. Lo and Elaine who no longer lay eggs. What do think?? Any guesses?? The egg was brown but Leeloo was sitting on EVERYONE'S eggs...not just hers. . . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #backyardchickens #hatchling #chicks #peeps #areyoumymom

I completely spaced on posting an update on the "other" 2 chicks! A quick recap...Leeloo, one of our hens, got broody and sat on 7 eggs. These were laid by all of our hens (not just her). Out of those, 3 were fertile. For whatever reason only 1 hatched. Trying to take advantage of her baby-raising skills, I bought 2 chicks from @IFAcountrystores and slipped them under her one night. All was going well until Leeloo woke up the next morning. She seemed to be in a panic about her missing eggs and confused about the new chicks. I sat there observing for an hour and she appeared to get more and more upset and aggressive toward the new chicks. The new ones were clearly distressed and cold. They need to be kept very warm for the first few weeks of life (like 90º+) but Leeloo wouldn't let them back under her to warm up. I made the decision to remove them and raise them myself. Our awesome neighbors let us borrow their small chicken tractor (again) and I set up a heat lamp. Although I'm sad it didn't work out (truthfully I'm sadder the other two eggs/chicks didn't hatch) I'm happy knowing these new ones are safe and have a better chance of being much friendlier. Leeloo's little chick keeps away from us...but she really is adorable. So, here's the 2 Buff Brahma chicks in their mini dust bath spa. They are doing very well and are very loved. . . #mutinyranch #chickens #farmlife #farmlet #backyardchickens #peeps #chickenspa

I think it's safe to say that Pedro is loving his dinner 🍎 🍅 🌽 🍓 And yes he is that big... Pedro is a 2 1/2 year 300kg Saddleback Boar. Chris had to disconnect the trailer and jump in the back to tip the trailer down so Pedro could slide out backwards as there was no way he was turning around and walking on out. #homeharvestco #honeygumacreage #pigs #saddleback #permaculturedesign #smallfarm #farmlet #freerangefarming #freerangefarm #homegrownfood #growwhatyoueat #growyourown #eatlocal #buylocal #farmlife #farmstays #homestay #bnb #countrylife #autumn #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #smallholding #acreage

#❤️myfarm Theme: Farmstead Mama @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers Here’s the goat version ultimama, Sweet Grace, with her nearly 9-month old daughter, Ivy, who she still nurses, and in the second picture with her older daughter, Columbine, who she still sleeps with at night. I love Mother’s Day, not because I need my five children to celebrate me, but because I get to celebrate that a huge purpose and calling for my life here on this earth was to sacrifice my body, time, money and work to carry, birth and raise five incredible human beings. It is no light thing. There IS physical sacrifice, real fear, true heartbreak. It is a pouring out of self that Hallmark can’t capture, a depth of self-spending that results in profound growth and change. It is not a possessing or owning, and in fact, after years of dedication and commitment, there is no claiming of achievement. The five are my Magnum Opus (thank you Charlotte), but they have spun their webs and launched as they were meant to. I am spent, broken, exhilarated, satisfied and changed. I stand back and watch in awe as I realize more clearly now that God asked me to be a part of something huge, despite my own brokenness and weakness, but not for my glory. Motherhood is ultimately not about possessing a tiny human, nor even creating one, and certainly not about building something for oneself. It is God’s work, and mothers are called to be the humblest of servants: feeding, wiping, loving, nurturing, praying, hoping. In the end, there is no boasting, for children are not born to be ours, but to be themselves. We claim only the contentment of having been such a tangible part of God’s amazing plan and Kingdom work. Happy Mother’s Day! #farmlet #minifarm #backyardfarm #nigeriandwarfgoats #dairygoats #grassfedmilk #mothersday #mothers #mothersanddaughters #purpose #calling #servanthood #Kingdomwork

[email protected]@$$%Warning%[email protected]@!!! this post includes graphic photo’s of a real chicken butchering intended for human consumption. Rachelle and I processed our first chickens today. Two roosters that we hatched out. I felt that I was able to give them a good life and a swift humaily as possible end. It was a steep learning curve but I'm proud that I was able to take responsibility for my food. This will be the first meat I've eaten in probably 6 years. I only feel comfortable eating meat I have produced myself. #lilsebastianfarmlet #chickens #roosters #chickenprocessing #dispatch #farmlet #hobbiefarm #countryliving

WTH? I was grooming Margarita, who happens to be shedding a LOT, when Hank decided to "attack" her fur. I posted this to a donkey owners group and apparently fur eating isn't uncommon but his aggression seemed odd. I don't know if he's doing this to show dominance or his love for Margie (who won't let him canoodle). He's gelded but some male equines can still act like studs. I DID pick up all the fur and ensured Hank didn't actually eat any of it. I don't need a vet bill for impaction/colic...and at 35 years old Hank might not fair well with an ailment. Anyone else have any ideas what this means?? . . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #donkey #burro #haireatingburro #doesntseemtasty

The Mutiny (the RV with which we traveled full-time for 4 years) is getting a new life. We're replacing the flooring and doing a mini remodel/sprucing up. Rather than sell it we're going to experiment with renting it as a glamping/farmstay unit. It will be stationary on our property...which is perfectly situated between Mesa Verde National Park and Hovenweep National Monument. It's also 5 miles from Canyons of the Ancients National Monument (and @sutcliffevineyards ), 3 miles from Guy Drew Winery, 12 miles from @wildedgebrewing , 10 miles from Hawkins Preserve, 30 minutes from @doloresriverbrewery and plenty of other amazing places in between (Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, Ute Tribal Park). On top of that, we've got a donkey, burro, minihorse, 2 goats and chickens to make our guests feel welcome. Throughout the season we hope to provide farm fresh produce, eggs, fresh roasted cofree and sourdough breads for our guests as well. Lots of work ahead to make it happen so wish us luck!! . . #mutinyranch #farmlet #farmlife #swcolorado #fourcorners #glamping #farmstay #vrbo #airbnb
