For me, hunting isnโ€™t about how many ducks I shoot. (And itโ€™s a good thing too because Iโ€™m still perfecting my shot ๐Ÿ˜‚) Itโ€™s about spending time with the ones I love, eating organic meat and feeling a connection to the land. #amandasoutdooradventures _________________________________ #itsalifestyle #huntinglifestyle #eatorganic #liveofftheland #girlswhohunt #girlshunttoo #womenwhohunt #womenhunttoo #huntress #adconserve #conservation #conservationist #whatgetsyououtdoors #iamsportsman #iamsportswoman #intheduckblind #duckhunting #huntingfamily #duckhuntingseason #girlsincamo #camoismyfavoritecolor #camoflauge #countrygirls #shescountry #cutecountrygirls #minnesotagirl #minnesotaoutdoors #outdoorsygirl

Why is tincture making an important skill for homesteading, independent living, and preservation? ๐Ÿ‚ Tinctures are a highly effective form of herbal medicine. Made by soaking herbs in alcohol (or vinegar), tinctures are shelf-stable and easy to use once made. Tinctures are an excellent way of โ€œpreserving the herbal harvestโ€ and capturing the medicinal qualities of fresh herbs while theyโ€™re fresh. Once you make a tincture, it can last for 1-2 years. ๐Ÿ‚ Tinctures are simple to make, but if you havenโ€™t done it before it can be helpful to have a guide to answer your questions, which is why itโ€™s nice to do in a classroom setting. Itโ€™s also good to get info about dosing and how to take tincture so that theyโ€™re most readily absorbed. ๐Ÿ‚ Finally, making your own tincture is much less costly than buying them. If you use herbal medicine a lot, making tinctures can be very cost effective, and you get to customize them! ๐Ÿ‚ If you want to learn how to make tinctures, we have three opportunities: ๐Ÿ‚ -- Tincture Making Workshop: Sat, Oct. 6th, 2:00, on the farm ๐Ÿ‚ โ€” Herbs for Cold & Flu Season: Thurs, Sept 27th, 7-9, Hunterdon County Polytech ๐Ÿ‚ โ€” Herbs for Brain Health, Mon, Oct. 15th, 7-9, on the farm ๐Ÿ‚ Follow the link in our bio for info on classes.

It's my first time making a #compost and I am very excited about this project. My goal is to be as sustainable as possible with my food; grow more at home and #liveofftheland so to speak. . We started with simple herbs and medicinal plants, a few food crops and now this composting. Still a way to go...but we will get there. What if we all grew some of our own food? Surely that will make a difference in how we consume things. I have noticed already that my trash is a lot less! . . Come and share your practice in our energizing evening yoga class tomorrow at 530 pm in St. Helena. See you then!

Not all of our artisan visitations are as exciting as the one this past week. We were able to visit one of our tin-smithers in his home village about 2 hours away and learn all about living off the land. Just pick some herbs from the garden, fry up some local frogs, pound it all together and throw it in the soup! Then climb the tree and pluck some fruit for dessert. Yum!! #thaivillageinc #teamtvi #frog #frogsoup #organicgarden #liveofftheland #herbs #thaifood #thaicooking #thailand

Cold brew for the win :D a dash of cream and a little caramel syrup over ice and perfect ice cold coffee! My biggest drama is remembering to start a new brew with plenty of time so that I donโ€™t run out.

How we teach our young adults in Alaska. This is a school in Haines, Alaska. One of the great things about small Alaskan Schools is that sometimes we can drop everything when an opportunity arises. Last night a moose was struck on the road and the carcass was donated to the school lunch program. The students of Mrs. Boron's American Government class have sprung into action and are currently processing the moose for the food program. Soon our students will be having moose stew, moose burgers, moose tacos, and many other incredible creations from Brandie Stickler and the food service staff. What a great learning opportunity for our students and on Camo Day of all days! #fieldtoplate #fieldtofork #fieldtotable #teachthemyoung #reallife #survival #liveofftheland #hunting #nothinggoestowaste #roadkill #moose #protein #bestmeatthereis #passontheculture #alaska

It's officially, I'm very happy. Chestnuts are in season and that's all I care about, the best thing about this is that I've got access to them before most people, especially people dependant on the shops to provided them! My excellent learning and memory of this place will serve me well! One of my goal in life is to have my own chestnut woodland ๐Ÿ˜ #chestnut #chestnuts #autumn #freefood #liveofftheland

The most incredible time with these amazing people. It saddens me greatly how much modern man in all his wisdom has all but removed this natural way of living. To life off the land that seems to offer nothing. To know the nutritional and healing properties of every plant. To be able to hunt down food with a simple bow and arrow, the tip poisoned from a near by cactus juice. Their survival skills are phenomenal, and their state of joy very clear. We have so much to learn from these people and their ancient ways if we could just stop trying to force them into our way of life thinking we know better. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- #africa #botwana #kalaharitribe #liveofftheland #ancient #tribal #realliving #imsowhite #iglow

This past weekend I attended the โ€œFall wild mushroom forayโ€ hosted by the folks of @fernandfungi And while I didnโ€™t find any edible mushrooms on my bushwhacking adventure, I did find some medicinal ones and learned about the inedible ones that Iโ€™d found. Some other lucky foragers discovered edible ones to take home and it was nice to see them in person instead of just in pictures (see the pic of the assortment on the blanket). Max and I took off later that evening on a foraging adventure on our property and found some beautiful turkey tail mushrooms and birch polypores that are currently hanging out in the dehydrator. Iโ€™m posting pics of some of the others I found but couldnโ€™t identify if anyone wants to chime in! ๐Ÿ™‚ #mcrudyhomestead #wildmushroom #forage #liveofftheland #lotstolearn

It took some patience and time like anything in life but Iโ€™ve got two of three of our piggies into the cuddles ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . I grew up on a potato / pig /cattle farm and always took for granted having an abundance of pork chops and the biggest steaks youโ€™ve ever seen in the freezer. When I moved out on my own I donโ€™t think I ate potatoes or steak for a couple years if I could help it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I never thought twice about it but we always knew where our meat came from in addition to the deer and moose that would also be in the freezer every fall. . Fast forward to now , my husband and I strive to grow or harvest as much food as we can. We very rarely buy meat from the grocery store and eat 95% wild game including moose, deer, bear, partridge, turkey etc. Itโ€™s all our children have ever known but bringing pigs onto the โ€œfarmโ€ will definitely be a nice addition in the coming years once these ladies are old enough to be bred. . I understand not everyone shares these beliefs but I do ask that you keep that to yourself. I hope to keep this a positive place, but I also believe in being transparent and showing you the real me. Iโ€™ve grown up on a farm and hunting and itโ€™s as much a part of me and my family as the air we breathe. . Are there any other hunting or farming families on here , raise your hand?? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ . . . . . . . #familiesthathunt #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #pork #homestead #liveofftheland #homegrownfood #farmgirl #farmgirllife #meandmypig #girlsthathunt

You are here for a reason . . I remember the times where i used to look at life and say, why me? When is this going to end? I canโ€™t do this anymore. When I remember being so close to losing everything more than once. But you know what, Iโ€™m still here. There are still many pages of my story that are unwritten. And it is all of these lessons and hardships and tests that I was handed because I had the ability navigate them. If you are handled it, you can handle it. I know it seems crazy, because not everything is easy, and thereโ€™s a lot of sacrifice that goes with gross. And we are all just one choice away from changing our direction. We are just one moment away from destiny always. And one of my friends once told me, it will be OK in the end, and if itโ€™s not OK itโ€™s not the end. So when I saw this quote I thought of him and wanted to share this with you all. . I was in a relationship that could have taken away everything I was. I couldnโ€™t see clearly, for every day was survival. Every day I lived in fear. But I stayed there because it was my choice. I didnโ€™t believe in myself enough to think I could do this on my own, life on my own. For me, I saw glimpse into my future. I watched the people in the wake of the disaster I was in. And they were nothing more than bodies cowering to an iron fist. I didnโ€™t want that to be me. I knew deep down that there was something greater for me out there. The interesting part is that my friends saw this long before I did. But you canโ€™t make the change until youโ€™re ready, just like any addiction. But trust those around you who love you, and ask questions if you feel somethings not right. Know that you have the right to live, and you have the right do it your way. And those that love you, will love you regardless.

Kombu harvested by @oldbanj01 my favorite diver! After dehydrating and grinding it into powder, this seaweed will go in my next batch of face mask. . Until then, you can get your hands on an awesome face mask made with Nova Scotiaโ€™s kelp and wild harvested rosehips... which is still pretty great! Subtil sea scent with a touch of flower, itโ€™ll leave your skin soft and glowing. .

Who likes oysters? ๐Ÿ™‹ Had a lot of fun foraging for shellfish down in Margate yesterday with @luciathewildkitchen. Had a few firsts: - first time in Margate - first time foraging for oysters - first time shukking an oyster! ๐Ÿ˜‹ The Wild Food Kitchen team put on a gorgeous spread despite the rain. Mussels, slipper limpets, oysters, berries, seaweed all made into delicious canapes and treats... topped off with cocktails and tea. Mmmmm. Thanks @adam.h.brown for inviting us along! ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿท .
