Whiskey! I love here even though she still only tolerates me sometimes ๐Ÿ˜… shes going to end up like her mother I bet...... the sun is out and the snow is finally starting to melt everyone is much happier today! Of course it looks like the snow will be melting just in time for two days of rain so we may all be swimming out here soon ๐Ÿ‘Ž #homesteadersofamerica #homesteading #farmher #farmlife #vafarm #grassfed #grassfarmer #hamptonroadsva #richmondva #Williamsburgva #gloucesterva #yorkcountyva #newportnewsva #hamptonva #suffolkva #pineywoodscattle #heritagecattle #vabeef #homesteadhomies

So last week my son Joe took a hike up into the back portion of our property and found a spring flowing out from under some tree roots. I remembered this book I have been reading when I get a chance, and they have a great diagram on how to set up a catchment system. Going to do more research, but I think this is going to be a system we use for future animals and gardens. Can't wait to get more trees cleared and get the farm infrastructure started. It's a very slow process because I am still only home part time, but we will get there eventually. #homestead #systems #fivetopsfarm #naturalresources #homesteadersofamerica #farmher #planning #homesteadhomies #homesteadlife

These #homesteadhomies @offgridwithdougandstacy and @roots_and_refuge โ€˜s Jessica have brought me such joy during a difficult Holiday season. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›Also as a teacher, I so enjoy watching those with the natural gift themselves, and it turns out they are all filled with the Joy of Jesus/Yeshua too. If you love gardening, cooking from scratch, โ€ขeating raw, โ€ขfermenting, โ€ขnatural toxic free self care tips, and health tips ( โ€ขDoug and Stacy have a few videos that are great tips for keeping our natural exterior and interior good bacteria intact while helping us to get away from toxins). Only thing I would add in is Young Livingโ€™s oils for that and the natural apothecary. If you like Homesteading or the idea of being self sufficient, or maybe you are on your way there and need tips, Animal keeping and raising, building onto, and caring for the land within your care and โ€ขdesigns also for aging in place, *Chicken or Quail hatching *making money from your small homestead( *Jessicaโ€™s R & R channelโ€™s videos on hatching such itty bitty quail and chicks is ๐Ÿ˜) these two Youtube subscriptions are a must. I want to send out a big thank you to yโ€™all and to Jessicaโ€™s family and her husband Jeremiah, who also is dealing with a loss this Christmas, (we will be praying for yโ€™all), TY for just putting yourselves out on youtube, you all are inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚ And Good clean watching & instruction for homeschoolers too! They would be good watching for 4H families too. Plus at the end of most of the R&R videos Jessica always ends with her phrase, โ€œI bless youโ€, or We if she catches her hubby in the frame, so Biblical and so sweet! Check them out and if @offgridwithdougandstacy & @roots_and_refuge see this post Thank You and this Momma blesses you back in Jesus/Yeshuaโ€™s name.

Earlier today, I got one #egg out of the #chicken coop. Moments later, I realized one of the #hens was injured. About 4 hours later, as I reached for my keys out of my coat pocket and found that egg I'd gathered earlier. LOL it hadn't broken. Thankfully. #homestead #homesteadhomies

We finally butchered our pig, she was about 400lbs live weight. We had a few good friends help us out and weโ€™re so grateful. It was a full 2 day project and lots of sausage was made. We have 1 ham and the side meat curing too. I love growing my own clean food for my family. โค๏ธ Swipe for more pictures.

What a mess to come home to find :( hes been dead for a while eyes were sunken in and it was warm today so the coyotes are getting this one. Made a good mess of the electric fence too. I'm keeping his head though of course.

I'm pretty impressed with how well the wood we have brought in so far is drying out. Our wood furnace the sits nearby doesn't put out a ton of heat in the basement, but between that and the dehumidifier, its definitely helping. Most of this wood you could see obvious moisture when we brought it in. It's still there some, but getting better every day. Need to get more inside and the son is almost ready to put the wood shed together. We are getting 4-8" of snow tonight into tomorrow afternoon. Time to ramp up the preps. #winterinnh #homestead #fivetopsfarm #woodheat #homesteadhomies #winterprep #homesteadersofamerica

After the hurricanes and other powerful storms that went through the south this year, Josh, better known as the @stoneyridgefarmer , had plenty of downed trees to clean up on his NC homestead. So he used his new LogOX to give himself an unfair advantage over the logs, you should too! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒณ See how he did it in his new video on our Facebook page or the Stoney Ridge Farmerโ€™s own #youtube channel. #TeamLogOX #firewood #chainsaw #stormdamage #treework #americantoolsforwoodsmen #LogOX #stoneyridgefarm #husqvarna #stihl #realstihl #treebiz #homesteadersofamerica #offgrid #selfreliance #homesteadhomies

If youโ€™ve ever hauled firewood indoors, you know that regardless of if you use a $10 nylon carrying bag or a $150 monogrammed leather tote, they all put a lot of unnecessary strain on your back, arm, and wrist. Our new ergonomically designed WoodOX Sling makes this chore significantly faster, safer, and easier, while making all other firewood carrying bags obsolete.

My oldest son and my nephew have been plugging away at this for the last few months when they have free time, clearing out some trees. The first picture is what it looked like before they started, and what it looks like where they have cleared. They have done it with axes, and they are doing incredible, but by next week we will be taking the chainsaw out there. Can't wait for room for pigs and such! #homestead #homesteadgoals #diyprojects #homesteadersofamerica #fivetopsfarm #homesteadhomies

Today marks a week since John and I searched every square inch of our 4 acres for Louie and a petite little hen. It had been a day since we last saw them free ranging. I found my poor Louie the Roo in a ravine near the house. Dead. All indication shows that he put up a good fight defending his ladies, with 5 of them getting away safely. We still haven't found the tiny hen. John was so kind and dug a deep hole in a special spot on our property. I hauled Louie's heavy body from the ravine, slipping and sliding up the muddy hill, but determined to get him out of that ugly spot. John let me be sad, and threaten to do very ugly, mean things to the neighbor dog that I believe killed Louie and the little hen. I know Louie and the little hen lived great, short lives here. They free ranged, were pampered with lots of treats, and enjoyed trying to get in the house ๐Ÿ˜ This helps with the bitterness of them meeting their end at the jaws of a (very sweet) domesticated animal. I'll always raise free range chickens. Despite the dangers. Rest in peace, Louie and little hen.

Well look at that the rare breed #pineywoodscattle cousins (Florida cracker cattle) have a spot in the new #reddeadredemption2 game. I wonder how many people playing have a clue that's a real breed with historical accuracy in the game? I can hear @benjaminmatheny now......
