We keep our compost pile in by the chicken's and goats. Every time they see my coming with compost they come running! They eat quite a bit of it, and greatly increase the breakdown rate of what they don't eat by picking through it. Once and a while we scrape it all back into a heap. - #HobbyFarm #HomesteadHobby #homesteadlife #homestead #goats #boargoats #meatgoats #weedeater #raiseyourownfood #wisconsinhomestead #goatsofinstagram #goatsofig #pastureraised #compost #compostpile #Chickens #FarmFreshEggs #SustainableLiving #PastureRaisedChickens #FreeRangeChickens #FreeRangeEggs

Sarah Michelle Gellar is wondering where my toes are. It’s fall here in zone 9b, which means it’s sometimes under 90 degrees before 10am, which means cute boots. 😆 ☀️

Halloween is less than two weeks away!? Can you believe clucking it! 🎃🐔 • I’m picking out a few chicks from the last hatches of the season, for a little treat (no trick 😉) for myself! • This little splash pullet is definitely one of them 💙 . . . . I say “pullet” like I know for sure. But we all really know the pretty ones end up being the boys 🙄🙄 . . ————————————————————————- #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #hens #pullet #silkies #silkiesofinstagram #silkiechicken #gourds #fall #pumpkins #farmlife #farmfresh #fresheggs #backyardflock #petchickens #mypetchickenofficial #homestead #happyhomesteading #happychickens #freerange #halloween #october #farm #backyardpoultrymag @backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside @iamcountryside #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #countryliving #hobbyfarm

Another day of orchard and woods maintenance with our trusty helpers 🐓. . . Today we will finish pruning the orchard area and we will continue clearing the woods line where numerous trees fell (and luckily missed our garden fencing) during the recent storms 🌳. . . At first we were bummed about the fallen trees, but it turns out they are the trees that were overtaken by the wild muscadines. As we cut up and clear the fallen trees, we have been able to trace the grape vines back to the roots which has allowed us to cut the grape vines back tremendously. Our plan is to build a grape trellis along the woods line and train the pruned vines so when they start to grow in the spring, they will grow on the trellis and we won’t have to climb ten feet in the air on ladders to harvest grapes 🍇. . . #orchardmaintenance #choreswithchickens #freerangechickens #fallfarmchores #traininggrapevines #fallonthefarm #hobbyfarm #lifeouthere #farmsweetfarm #landutilization #whiteleghorn

Beautiful and productive day @therailwayallotment , been doing lots of de-weeding, refreshed gate buckets, picking some purple globe turnips, started to expand beds, planted up wild area and general tidying, feels good to get things ticked off the list. All with the help of Casper the dog, and a nice chance to just sit and enjoy the sun with @davidpottrell #allotment #harvesting #veg #veggies #grow #growyourown #growyourownfood #summer #gardening #gardenblogger #gardenchat #hobbyfarm #realfood #homegrown #vegetablepatch #GYO #growfood #gardenersworld #eatlocal #allotmentlife #allotments #allotmentblog #greenthumb #kitchengarden #getoutside #organic #sustainablesprout

We got the future Moon Hill Ranch chicken cabin in place and is ready to be built out for the launch of Luca & Vinni’s Hobby Farm!! Raising our children to care for lives other than their own, executing chores daily & working hard to take care of their responsibilities will be a lot of extra work for Love Chop & I but it will teach them great principles in this life! #Luca #Vinn #LoveChop #MoonHillRanch #ChickenCoop #Colorado #RanchLife #MoonHillTraders #Rustic #HobbyFarm #AmpedLife #Amped #Adio #Reclaimed #Repurposed #MountainLife #ColoradoLiving #TheSweetLife #TheSweetLifeDesign

"When your horse is moving in correct balance on a circle, his body forms a bend that follows the curve of the circle."

My neighbour baled Martin's tracking field late last night. Martin would be so pleased that the hay was still salvageable after being cut the first week of September. Farmers are working crazy long hours now that there is good weather. Please remember to share the road with giant farm equipment. #germanshepherd #haybale #hobbyfarm #ruralliving

I've always thought of homesteading as an adventure, one that deeply changes your soul. 📑 No wonder one of my favorite quotes reflects that. 😉 Can anyone guess what it's from? . . #favoritequote #takeanadventure

Sunday morning dreams - I love when the sun is still below the trees and the birds are just waking up - add in a hot cup of coffee and crisp air and call it bliss. #hawriverhomestead

My sisters Alpaca’s....they’re not very friendly these two, that’s as close as I can get to them before they run away !! 😅👍🏼 She got them both to protect the potty lamb (Becky) from a fox attack so I’m trying to talk her into also getting a goat. I’m obsessed with baby goat videos lately and I’m sure they grow up to have more personality than these alpaca’s !!! 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 . . . . . #visitwagga #waggawagga #countryliving #brucedale #alpacasofinstagram #alpaca #alpacalove #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarmlife #countrynsw

Roo and Rabbit Proof Garden! Yesterday was a phenomenal day, morning was balmy, no wind and we managed to get so much done just before the torrential downpour. The black clouds were above Canberra and I yelled out to Mr Tech that we had about 3 minutes to get everything under cover... 3 minutes later Mr Tech was running around in the rain trying to put Audrey our Silver Laced Wyandotte and her 3 baby chicks in her coop. Then Mr Tech decided he needed to clean out the down pipe... It might have been slightly blocked... with nothing untowardly because that would just be gross. So as he precariously perched himself upon the ladder in a ridiculous downpour I saw a flash of lightning immediately followed by thunder. I yell out to Mr Tech to get inside, look over to the hill and see a bolt of lightning hit the top of it, throwing debris metres into the air. I ran to the deck scream at Mr Tech to "get off the &$#*%?Â¥ ladder" and as he's getting down another flash of lightning happens right above us! The dome was well and truly switched off and we got 16.5mm of rain within 1 hour!!! Unfortunately only about 3mm of it went into our tanks because the pipe was blocked... Today, the gardens had grown! I swear the strawberry plants have doubled in size. And we got our Rascally Roo and Pesky Rabbit Proof Fence up! #pepertyotglife

Yesterday I sowed my first ever green manure! I love me a good garden experiment. 💚 Green manures act like a cover crop over winter to stop weeds from growing and then add nutrients and organic matter to the soil when you turn it in in spring - just what my pumpkin patch needs! 🎃🌱 I'm trying this phacelia by @thompsonmorgan1855 and one pack was sufficient to cover 22m squared. I had such fun scattering the seeds around like Mary in The Secret Garden when she gets her patch of earth! Looking forward to seeing how it does!🤞 . . . #phacelia #greenmanure #gardenersofinstagram #instagardeners   #gardening #gardenblogger #gardenchat #homesteading #smallholding #hobbyfarm #organicfood #organicgarden #homegrown #growyourown #gardenersworld #urbanorganicgardener #thehappygardeninglife #eatlocal #digforvictory #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentblog #greenfingers #kitchengarden #botanicalwomen #girlswithplants #getoutside #allotmenteering #gardengram

I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK I sleep all night and I work all day I cut down trees, I eat my lunch I go to the lavatory On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea.....(Lumberjack Song by Monty Python) Introducing my cousin Daniele - one of the few of the Italian younger generation willing to purchase and take care of property in the campagna - he works at a college and in spare time is bringing back a neglected ancient olive grove back into production.

So, I gave this whole cheese making thing a try. I aimed for mozzarella, but ended up with a paneer instead. I learned a few things from my first attempt.. 1. Check which side of your thermometer is F or C, because 90C is way higher than 90F 🤦🏼‍♀️ 2. The formation of curds is so cool! 3. You need a good friend who loves making cheese on speed dial for when you overheat your milk and totally botch your plans to make mozzarella. Thanks to @maeflowerfarms I at least ended up with a success!! Cheese making seems to be a learning experiment! Next time, we will have mozzarella 🤞🏻 . . . . . #cheesemaking #selfsufficiency #homesteadlife #homesteading #homemadecheese #paneer #rawmilk #rawmilkcheese #simplelife #instagramhomesteaders #homesteaders #cheese #hobbyfarm

This beauty 😍 we visited Two Sow’s Ear today, which is the farmshare we participate in. For now, we aren’t able to raise our own dairy and meat cows and pigs. So, participating in the farm share is next best thing. The quality is amazing. The animals are treated with love and respect. Support your local farmers ❤️ . . . . #homesteadlife #supportlocalfarmers #homestead #selfsufficiency #farmshare #cowsofinstagram #cows #dairycows #jerseycow #simplelife #homesteaders #hobbyfarm
