Missouri friends! There is still time to sign up for a 2019 Southside CSA package! Unlike your typical monthly CSA (community-supported agriculture) basket full of veggies, Southside CSA members will instead receive a harvest basket at the end of the season that includes one whole pasture-raised, organic fed chicken (!!!) as well as some fresh, jarred and baked goodies. In addition, CSA members will receive a sweet t-shirt that will get them discounts at all #southsidesaturday events as well as a golden ticket to all private farm events and a farm-to-table dinner. That’s a whole lot of happy for $50. All you have to do is follow the link in the bio 👆 and order ‘The CSA Package’. There are only 19 spots left for the year so get yours while you still can!

Here is Dolores with a feather as a beard. She was trying to build what I refer to as her “shit-nests.” She likes to lay an egg in the garage so that a person will immediately gather it, but sometimes she’ll build a nest first. As the garage isn’t for chickens, she’ll use cigarette butts plucked from ashtrays, paper towel, and other oddities. In this case she based her nest around a Lysol wipe container and ashtray and even decided some sandpaper made the cut for her shit-nest. The feather was an unusually appropriate addition, but she almost inhaled it right after this picture so I took it off her. #backyardchicken #chicken #lightsussex #sussexchicken #freerangechicken #petchicken #housechicken #garage #garagepet #bird #chickenlover #instachicken #hobbyfarm #sweetgirl #petpoultry #hen #hensofinstagram #feather #chickenfarmer #birdlover #chickensofinstagram #mypet #petsagram

First harvest of the season! 💚 Jon and I went out to weed and were pleasantly surprised to see LOTS of lettuce and radishes ready to pick. The "what to have for dinner" question is resolved for the rest of the week! . . . #homesteadersofinstagram #instagramhomesteaders #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #farmlifebestlife #farmlife #minifarm #hobbyfarm #gardening #garden #backyardgardening #growyourown #organicgardening #organicvegetables #farmtofork #farmtotable #backyardgarden #farmher #womenwhofarm #rurallife #rural #countryside #countrylife #pesticidefree

What an unexpected surprise to find this volunteer lavender growing in raised bed #1. I’ve been mulching these beds with lavender trimmings for a few seasons now and have never seen any pop up on their own. I rearranged the drip system this spring so that might have made a difference.

Most rides with Jaxon are relaxing and therapeutic.. tonight was an exception. Swarms of black flies were eating us alive. Extreme irritation. Brick pillars are really terrifying among other things like dark grass patches, light grass patches, headstones, cows, beer cans, bicycles and a groundhog that spooked us both 🤦🏼‍♀️ ALSO I failed to turn my phone silent before I took this picture and well... the picture snap sounds insanely similar to a cluck according to Jaxon 😩 Needless to say we had a short ride but man it was beautiful 🖤 #horse #spookyhorse #riding #horseriding #farm #countryliving #son #hobbyfarm #standardbred #horsebackriders

The chickens are to old to be in their nursery box and got moved to the chicken coop today. I am sad my babies are all grown up. Buried hardware sheet and connected it to the coop. Hope they will be predator safe. Nervous Helicopter Mom. We also had to drain the pool a little because of all the rain and the girls were splashing in muddy puddles. #chickens #helicoptermom #nervous #notbabiesanymore #rhodeislandred #barredrock #muddypuddles #tomuchrain #combatptsdawareness #ptsdawareness #suicideprevention #tbiawareness #guritzacres #michigan #graylingmi #hobbyfarm #1000hoursoutside

Duckie & her babies 🐣 This dedicated hen sat on five Rhode Island Red eggs for 21 days. One of the eggs never developed, but she hatched four beautiful little chicks. For the first 18 days, the broody hen will get up once a day. During this time, she poops, eats, drinks, and usually takes a dust bath. From day 18-21, the broody hen puts the eggs on “lockdown.” She doesn’t eat, drink or poop for three days until the chicks hatch. Broody hens are amazing!! 👏🏼

Today’s harvest. We didn’t grow much garlic and the garlic we did grow was a gift from a farmer that goes to my church. I’ll have to grow more next year because it did pretty well. Pickling cukes are starting to come in strong. A lot of my beans are doing well, but I’m waiting to use them as dry beans in the pantry. 😊

Little peek into my garden 🙂 I went a little crazy with sunflowers this year i know, they are literally planted all over the place... for the bees, plus my chickens love sunflowers, I compost the stalks and The best reason of all, they are gorgeous! Can’t wait for those to bloom! In the meantime right now I’m harvesting tons of kale, fava beans and peas. My zucchini is just starting to take off and I know within the next few days I will have plenty! #organicgarden #permaculture #gardening #gardentour #minifarm #hobbyfarm #urbanfarm #growyourown #growingveggies #zone5gardening #zone5 #gardeningwithchickens #backyardchickens #chickens

Well it's official. I have my own cow. If you ask little sister C she will tell you that she's hers...she has a pink tag in her ear after all. But let's be real, ain't nobody but this momma gonna get up early to milk this girl when she gets older. I was super stoked when we made the deal to trade one of our young cows for this future milk cow heifer. She is 1/2 milking bred Dexter and 1/2 mini Hereford. She's short, sassy, and a little on the wild side. But she's mine, I have the paperwork to prove it😉 Btw, her name is Maybell. I'm thinking she's gonna need her own hashtag, what do you think? #familycow #milkcow #futuremilkcow #maybellthemilkcow #cowlove #cutecows #cowstagram #cowlife #cowsgomoo #beefitswhatsfordinner #homesteadcows #cowlover #miniaturehereford #thesimpleeveryday #seeksimplicity #asimplelife #moderndaysoldways #farmsweetfarm #iamcountryside #farmher #hobbyfarm #homesteadliving #iamamodernfarmer #minifarm #lifeontwoacres #womeninag #homesteadersofamerica #homesteading #lifeoutthere #homesteadliving

“I’m not just farming fiber animals, neither am I simply sowing other people’s love for animals in general. However, what I AM doing is growing the smiles on my animals faces and harvesting their unconditional love.” ~ Amy . Cameron came to me from Washington state with Calypso and Edgar the dog. They were the first goats to arrive here on the farm. So much has changed since then. . People that feel they know Kevin and I often ask “why do you do it?” People only see dirt, sweat, and hard work. They don’t understand our “Why”. . My answer - I have never colored inside the lines so why would I start now? I love each animal here and together Kevin and I build the best atmosphere we possibly can for them. We are unique in the fact - this is our passion. Therefore we really are a true “hobby farm”. We do us and don’t mind if that makes us different from others. I think it’s pretty awesome actually. . This little clip means the world to me. I have never forced his love or begged for it through treats. Honestly, I never thought he would come around....and then one day I felt his soft little nose slip inside my hand. From there the process was still slow, but today it really bloomed into full trust and unconditional love. THIS....this is my why - and it’s all I need. . #goatlove #animallover #safefarm #animalsareawesome #animalsnotfood

Jim has a pick-up truck again and all seems right with the world. . Swipe to see the original light situation here and then swipe back to marvel at how much better the @profotousa A1X made this shot. THIS is the kind of image you will learn how to take in my class, “Master Beautiful Light.” .
