Day 12 of #farmsteadersholiday is COMMUNITY. I met my wonderful husband and he brought community back into my life, full throttle. He grew up surrounded by all these supportive, honest, kind folks and those folks took me in like they always knew I'd be there one day. Although slightly overwhelming in the beginning, it was absolutely terrific to meet so many wonderful people who've loved Em for so long. In this picture, Zac (white t-shirt and who officiated our wedding), Carol-Jean (by me) and Travis (yellow shirt) who are signing our wedding license as witnesses are trying to figure out how to fill out the marriage certificate the right way! All lifelong friends of Em's, and now of mine. My heart is so full and I'm so thankful for this wonderful community that took me under their wing before knowing how totally bananas I can be. Also, it was really hard to decide which picture to use.📸 • • • @atablefullinthewoods @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @moderndaysoldways @the_teenage_homesteader ✌️ 🕊️ 🥂 #thegreenacrehomestead #community #familyandfriends #peoplesupportingpeople #lovethelittlethings #lovemyhusband #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #instagrambloggers #womenwhohomestead #thankful #thankfulhomesteaders #gettoknowahomesteader #acceptance #togetherness #gardening #farming #growyourownfood #growtogether

This winter we have burnt up a lot of wood and it's not even January. Some days I'm grumpy about heating mostly from wood. I can be heard saying things to my husband such as "why am I cold all the time we live in 2018!" But despite all of this, there is nothing so satisfying as curling up next to a wood stove with a book (or in front of Netflix let's be real) at the end of the day, and knowing Dan works so hard to keep us warm really makes my heart swell 💓. . . #homesteading #homesteadersofinstagram #woodstove

#homeharvestmeals # 20 is - yes - another frozen summer soup and homemade bread combo. This time tomato and basil soup, with a little fresh hydroponic basil from the @officialaerogarden sprinkled on top. I’ll never tire of soup and bread, but I WILL try to make some more exciting stuff for you guys this winter, I promise 😂

Guuuuyysss! I went from a daily five up to ELEVEN eggs in one day yesterday! So excited that these multicolored pretties are coming in again! Along with the increase in eggs comes the increasing frequency of finding them in inappropriate locations, like this one in a pile of moldy hay in the hay shed, that Moosh of the fabulous beard is kindly demonstrating for us. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. If you are a fan of Beatrix Potter you will know that baby rabbits often get into mischief. These three, although still completely blind, are already following mom after feedings and getting stuck in the most difficult places to find. I had a tiny heart attack yesterday when I went to check on them and discovered they had all migrated to another corner. Baby bunnies need mom once or twice a day for milk, other than that they spend days sleeping and cuddling together for warmth. Their growth and progression is rapid and phenomenal (as with most baby animals) and it’s a fascinating process that I never get tired of experiencing! #rabbits #rabbitkits #bunny #babybunny #rabbitsofinstagram #minirexrabbit #rexrabbit #babybunny #homestead #homesteading #rabbitbreeder #homesteadlife #homesteadinglife #peterrabbit #beatrixpotter #homesteadersofinstagram #flopsybunnies

A few short weeks ago this was my view one day. Today the leaves are gone and the weather is cold. The house across the pond is different inside. # Seasons change, life changes, people change. Some change is beneficial, some is hard. Some changes we can control, other times it is out of our control. # The comfort in all of this is that our God does not change. For I am the LORD, I change not. Malachi 3:6a # He is Faithful and True, our Hope, our salvation, glory, the rock of my strength, and refuge, Rev. 19:11, 1 Tim. 1:1, Psalm 62:7 # Whatever you are going through today, lean into Him. Let Him carry you through the changes. #buildingishardwork #changeishard #changeisexciting #changehappens #godneverchanges #helovesyou #godislove # # # # # #farmhousebeauty #rusticfarmhouse #colorfulfarmhouse #mycolorfulfarmhouse #thegreenfarmhouse #greenfarmhouse #diyhomebuild #homebuild #buildingahouse #buildingahomestead #buildingafarmhouse #houseinthecountry #farmhouseinthecountry #backtoeden #sharethegospel #homestead #farmhouse #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #simpleliving

So lets talk maple syrup 🍁. I will likely do a few posts on this because there's a lot of info! First off, one of the most frequent questions I get is "when do you make maple syrup?" Maple sugaring season typically starts in late winter/early spring. So think end of February through March, and finishing up at some point in April, depending on the weather, and your location. The temperatures are a key factor for making syrup. It must be above freezing (32° F) during the day and below freezing at night. These temps act like a pump causing the sap to run up the tree trunk during the day and back down at night, giving you the most sap flow during the day. On a good day you may have to change your buckets multiple times. Maple sap is clear and thin, just like water. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make just 1 gallon of syrup! Needless to say it's a lot of boiling down. It's best to do it outdoors, or in a sugar house, which has an open ceiling, because of all the steam the evaporation creates. Trust me, it will gunk your walls all up. Don't ask me how I know that.😉🤦‍♀️ Once the sap boils down enough you must watch the temperature closely. It turns into syrup at exactly 219°F, and will violently boil over and burn very quickly above that. Again don't ask me how I know.🙈 In the sugar house we not only watch the temperature of the syrup but we also check the density with a specific gravity hydrometer. To legally bottle and sell maple syrup in the US and Canada, it must have a minimum density of 66.9 brix, which means it's at least 66.9% sugar. 🥞 #maplesugaring

You guys. I suck at keeping bread starters alive. The good news is, they’re pretty indestructible. I forgot to feed mine for a few weeks and it sat in the fridge. I pulled it out. Mixed it up. Dumped half of it out. Fed it. Gave it a pinch of sugar to jump start it. And tada! Happy as a clam again! (This picture was after it hit its peak so not a ton of bubbles but looking good!) Do you keep a bread starter? Are you as bad as I am at feeding if? 😂 • • • • • • • • • • • • #breadstarter #sourdough #sourdoughstarter #homemadebread #knowwhatsinyourfood #homesteadinglife #freshbread #madefromscratch #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #upstatenyhomestead #theporterhomestead

Rhona has been telling me for weeks now that it’s no fair the goats get their own day of the week when she’s the one doing all the work. 🏆Aforementioned “work” consists of the following: 1) BARK. At trees. 🌲At snow. ❄️At birds. 🦅At deer. Sometimes at nothing at all. Because hey, barking is the doggie equivalent of opera singing, am I right? 🎤 2)Follow all humans around and present the left (NOT THE RIGHT) paw 🐾 for hand shakes. But hand shakes must be immediately accompanied by petting or aggressive pawing at your appendages will ensue. 😂🐶3) follow Pickles the cat 🐱 around for hours as he hunts mice (this is my favorite one 😂 Pickles hates it). • • In honor of Rhona’s many talents we are going to begin hosting a new hashtag THIS Friday 🎉👏🏻because what could be better than meeting the dogs and pups behind all of our amazing farms and homesteads? We hope you guys will join us and flood the #FarmPupFriday feed with adorableness 🐶🐩Tagging some buddies who might like this puppy love ❤️

Pigs are naturally social. They love to be with one another and with you. Wilbur is a boy, so a lot of his drive is to dominate and probably control the environment and then I interpret that as him just loving me...but I’m ok with that denial:) also, goats are spectacular. You should have them. #goats #pigs #julianablendpig #pigsofinstagram #pigstagram #pig #goat #goatlover #piggy #farmlife #minifarm #hobbyfarm #homestead #homesteading #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteaders #homesteadersofinstagram

Winter gardeners. After the sheep have cleaned up the big stuff, we're encouraging the chickens to scratch and till by enticing them with grain. My daughter wore her tiara and a princess dress most of the day.

The Road Not Taken BY ROBERT FROST Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.🤔 (Rumor is that the road less traveled led to Homestead Life!) 😁 #homesteadlife #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #farmlife #backyardgarden #backyardchickens

Successfully transported a fully feathered 3 year old peacock in my Jeep from Red Bluff with the help of a feed bag. For perspective, this dude’s tail is 3 feet long and his body is the size of a small turkey... there was no way he would fit in a cage or even an XL dog crate. So he was a bird burrito for a bit and is now relaxing with some treats. 🦚 I’m done with adventures for the week. Building a new covered run tomorrow and then I’m resigning to computer work the rest of the week. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done this week? Seriously, I want to hear some stories.

Carry all the compost, mulch, or topsoil you can handle👌⁣ .⁣ Helping is not considered mandatory around here, we actually want them to learn to love working and helping out around the homestead.

This is why we started. Because I was tired of saying "I wish we could do *this* with the kids" & "I want to raise the kids *this* way". 🏡 Instead of just wishing we decided to do something about it. It started ever so small, and there were plenty of tough times and moments where we want to quit. But truth be told, we wouldn't want to live any other way. 🏡 Where did you start? . . . . . . #oldfashionedonpurpose #homesteadersofinstagram #modernhomesteader #homesteadmom #homesteadingmama #homesteadinglife #womeninag #instagramhomesteaders #homesteader #minifarm #farmlifestyle #selfsufficiency #farmstead #simplelifestyle #farmlove

Y’all I have been itching to use my new egg apron since I received it! Terry over at @atablefullinthewoods made it and I love it! If you don’t follow them, you need to! It has the perfect pockets to cradle a chicken egg but also big enough to hold a duck egg for the ducks my husband doesn’t know we are getting😉 The truth is we haven’t had laying hens since before we moved and building a new coop was placed on the back burner until Spring! Here is to plenty of chicken, egg, and apron pictures when Spring hits! #eggapron #chickeneggs #duckeggs #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #chickenmom #crazychickenlady #aprons #farmwife #farmlife #countryliving

Today's #farmsteadersholiday theme is 🕯💡lights! We took our kids to a nearby town's tree lighting a couple of weeks ago. We frequent the feed store who sponsored it so they were going to let my daughter light the tree when it came time. I was trying to get a video but since I was standing back away from the tree, Dakota got scared and ran to me. 😑 I tried to run back to the tree with her but my husband is the one who actually lit the tree 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️😂. Ah well! This is one of the only pictures I got. #itstoughbeingthree #gettoknowahomesteader

I'm all but certain I have never done an introduction post so here I go: ❄ My name is Erin and I'm 35 years old. My husband Josh and I live in beautiful (albeit cold) NE Minnesota with our 3 kids. ❄ Here we homestead on 8.5 acres and raise, grow, forage, and hunt a large portion of our own food. ❄ I'm passionate about permaculture gardening, processing our own meat animals at home, canning, cooking (and eating!) good food, curing meats, making bread, and collecting antique cast iron. ❄ I firmly believe I was born in the wrong century, I'm a complete introvert and thrive on solitude, and feel quite comfortable living under a rock. ❄ I have a soft spot for pigs, I love to embarrass my kids with my dancing, and I gave up swearing 5 years ago (which was very hard to do). ❄ I'm so glad you are here, because I do so love meeting like minded people. Please introduce yourself below and/or recommend some kindred spirits to follow! 💚

Every day they get bigger. ❤ So every year I try and make a little piece to remember just how little they were once. One year it was ornaments with their handprints. One year the girls made salt dough ornaments that they painted themselves. And every year we give a few away as gifts to people of their choosing. ❤ This year we tried making cinnamon dough ornaments and I had them make thumb print hearts....I kinfa wish I had made enough to keep one. What do you do to help remember those moments for when your kiddos are bigger? ❄️ Our #farmsteadersholiday theme for today is GIFTS. ❄️ Tomorrow we will select a winner to receive 50 colorful egg cartons that will make your eggs the star of any farmers market or friends fridge! Not only are they beautiful, they are practical too! Fitting small through extra-large eggs and made from completely recycled material, they offer great protection and durability. Customize them with a label or stamp to add your special touch! ✨ @eggcartonstore or at www.eggcartonstore.com ❄️ Please tag the hosts and the sponsor in your photo: @theeggcartonstore @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader ❄️ Use the hashtag #farmsteadersholiday ! ❄️ We can't wait to see your pictures! ❄️ Check out my stories to see the winner from yesterday’s challenge! . . . . . . #makingmemories #homesteadliving #hobbyfarm #lifeonthefarm #momminonthehomestead #homesteadmom #backyardfarmer #momof2girls #girlmomlife #mommin #stayathomemomlife #momlifebelike #momlifeishard #growingraisingmaking #homesteadersofinstagram   #homesteadersofamerica   #homesteadinglifebestlife #modernhomesteader #farmlifebestlife #hobbyfarm #womenfarmers #homesteadlife #lovemyhomestead #iamamodernhomesteader #womenwhohomestead

hi I’m Thelma 🐐 . I’m the kind of cool goats called Nigerian Dwarf Goat and very proud to be one. My parents adopted me & my sis (Louise) and I can tell that they love me because they gave me a nice house with views and lots of yummy food and lavender to eat even though they don’t like it when I do (eat their lavender). My momma plays with my ears, that really annoys me sometimes but I let her. I only like to cuddle for a few seconds after I eat my food. Im very happy to be the prettiest goat @lavenderbnbfarm . My parents are lucky to have me because with my delish🥛they make their fresh cheeses, yogurts, kefir (lebneh) and ice cream 🍨 that they really love. I hope my momma doesn’t eat too much ice cream though so she won’t have a big belly like me. I really hope that I will be picked to win my momma some delish salted Carmel with goat milk from @thesimplefarm ... that’s the only reason why I let her take a pic of me with this stupid flower headband that I think looks really dumb. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #meetmygoatmonday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you 💜 me ? Hope so 🐐 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll invite my friends @wildfeatherfarm @cupofjoelene @wise.acre.farm to play only if they give me the caramels if they win. #sonoma #urbanhomesteading #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #farmlife #farmstyle #womanwhofarm #modernfarmer #goat 🐐 #homesteadersofinstagram #rurallife #rurallifestyle #iamcountryside #homestead #homesteading #homesteadinglife #homesteadersofinstagram #rural #lavenderbnbfarm #nigeriandwarfgoat #nigeriandwarfgoats #nigeriandwarf #homesteadersofamerica #farmher #lifeouthere #ruralamerica #goats #goatsofinstagram #iamamodernfarmer
