Spotted: #kerbersfarm Land Rover in #sagharbor. If there’s something preppy within a 100 mile radius, I’m gonna find it! But let’s face it, I’m in preppy mecca so it’s not that hard! We’re having a blast.

A nice thunderstorm rolled in earlier and I was able to get a few fun pics of the horses and cows running before it hit. We had a nice long rain shower for about an hour and now the sun is working its way back out. 🌧💦 #coloradospringweather #junestorms #thunderstormscoming

The Boys 💗 Male goats get a bad rap as stinky, gross, and single purpose. While an intact male will spend a good chunk of his time being pretty disgusting and smelling up the entire farm, wethers (neutered males) don’t stink at all and are very well behaved. In fact, males (even the stinky bucks) are often more snuggly and human-oriented than does. And while you might think a wether is “useless”, they still can serve many purposes. They’re sweet pets, friends for your does, and are sometimes used as companion animals to other herd animals like horses. In my experience they’re some of the best foragers. We are very lucky that both our boys have found loving homes this year - and Jack will get to be one of those stinky bucks! #hostilevalleyliving #homesteading #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #punkrockhomesteader #modernfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farming #mainefarm #permaculture #goatsofinstagram #nigeriandwarfgoats #goatkids #babygoats

Happy Monday! Look who popped out to surprise me yesterday! I know, I know, I said no new geese this year, but Tulip was persistent and I got lazy about egg removal. And with the popularity of our goose eggs lately, I am not upset to have a new goosey face on the farm. It looks like Tulip’s little hatchling is part Roman Tufted. She has two more eggs under her so we’ll see if anyone else appears. Tulip is a Sebastopol and a wonderful mother, she hatched five beautiful goslings last summer. #hostilevalleyliving #homesteading #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #punkrockhomesteader #modernfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farming #mainefarm #permaculture #geeseofinstagram #getgeese #keepgeese #gosling #goslings

What do you see when you look at this picture? Probably a strange looking chicken with a crooked beak. You know what I see? The sweetest little hen who loves people and has the best personality. 💫 • • Meet Scyther. She was hatched out from eggs collected here on our farm. She is about 4 months old and is much smaller than her flock mates. Scyther has a condition called cross beak or scissor beak, which causes the top and bottom of her beak to grow misaligned. But don’t worry! We’ve figured out a good system for her, feeding her separately once a day with food that has water added so she can eat more easily. • • She loves to follow us around, climb our shoulders, and spend time with us. Her best friends are two silkie hens (Hollywood and Snowball) and one olive egger rooster (JZ). • • Scyther is also the feature of our YouTube video tomorrow morning where you will have a chance to meet her. I know you will all love her as much as I do! • • Tell me about your chickens and their personalities in the comments below. ⬇️ #thedodo

Happy Fathers Day to my amazing husband! We’ve built a wonderful life and have some amazing kiddos! He works so hard for us, he literally built our home for us! I love to watch him with our kids - he connects with each of them right at their level and where they need it most. Happy Fathers Day!! 💜😘 #amazinghusbandandfather #homesteadliving #eveningwalkwithfamily

Coco showed us his new trick today... he does this not only to complain about the lack of food in the bucket but to also pull down on the fence so he can reach the “greener” grass on the other side 🤦‍♀️ #horsetricks #fathorseproblems #CocotheUnicornhorse #Cocopuff #horselife * * * * * * #Smallfarm #smallfarmlife #smallfarmliving #hobbyfarm #lovemyfarm #homesteading #homesteader #modernhomesteader #naturalliving #selfcare #holisticliving #holistichealth #empowersocial #smallbusiness #wellnessadvocate #theelitesuite

The garden is finally all in and growing! It’s been a long spring of rain and cold weather that prevented me from planting when I would normally, but we got there eventually. We don’t grow commercial vegetable crops here, the focus is on self sufficiency with a little left over for friends, family, and animals. I try to plant what I know we will eat up or enjoy preserved, with one or two “experimental” plants every year (this year it’s okra). It’s a simple, but big, homestead garden of corn, potatoes, cucumbers, cabbages, tomatoes, and lots and lots of peas (my favorite!) that will keep us fed all summer and into the dark and cold days of winter. #hostilevalleyliving #homesteading #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #punkrockhomesteader #modernfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farming #mainefarm #permaculture #farmher #womenwhofarm #growyourownfood #gardentotable

Good Morning friends! Happy Father’s Day! We’re getting ready to head out of town for our annual Hamptons trip. I can’t wait! And the hay-wagon-turned-raised-veg-bed is complete!! It’s currently sitting in place waiting for dirt and veg plants, which will happen just as soon as we are back. I’ve also got berry plants waiting and lots of fun plans for the veg patch...which happens to be on an old tennis court here at the fishing lodge. I can’t wait to share it with you all! But first a little R&R. I’ll be back soon. Have a great week y’all! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #homemade #blogher #modernhomesteader #womenwhomake #mycountryhome #theartofslowliving #northernappalachia #haywagon #haywagonconversion #raisedgardenbeds #reuse #repurpose

My husband makes the best homemade pasta and Lorelai always asks to help and he saves her a little piece of dough. He helps her put it through the roller and she makes fun shapes and designs.

Our little 5 year old, Wyatt, was being a #farmpapa the other night while we were doing evening chores!

Baby chick update: our mama and her babies are doing well! They are spending days in one of our mobile coops enjoying fresh grass, bugs and sunshine! It's amazing to see how God equipped hens to care for their chicks. These may be the heartiest chickens we've raised ever!

I've always had a lot of dreams. That hasn't changed, even now that we have our little homestead. I have big dreams for this place, for our gardens, pastures, and orchard. But my biggest dream, has already come true. And no, it's not living on this property with our sweet animals. It's spending a life with my other half. LOVE. At the end of the day, it's what we all dream of. The love of God, love for another, love for children, love with family, or animals, or even the garden. We dream of living lives filled with love. As I work hard to make other dreams come true, I remind myself of this love that I have, with my sweet and kind husband. How lucky am I to have found my love? • • What do you LOVE?

Marigolds are one of my favorite flowers. It’s mostly because of nostalgia. My dad always planted marigolds in his gardens to keep pests at bay. And my mom always planted them in her flower beds because they were easy to keep alive—she had a black thumb like me. . Now, I plant them for much the same purposes. They protect my tomato plants in my raised beds and they add a pop of bright colors to my flower containers. Of course, I also appreciate how they attract and feed pollinators. What’s your favorite flower? . #marigolds #flowers #companionplanting #pollinators #savethebees #gardensofinstagram

Get you someone who looks at you like Saffron looks at him 😍 A few weeks ago when I cohosted #farmvideofriday , @thespryfarm shared a video of her pigs sitting for a treat! It had never occurred to me to train our pigs to sit. But considering these gals will reach up to 600lbs, good manners are very important. So, we took some treats down and within literally one minute Saffron had mastered sit. Nutmeg still tries to get away with stealing treats for Saffron’s good behavior 😆 I cannot get over how smart these ladies are. And easy to keep, and incredibly good at their jobs. Hardest workers on the farm right here, and still overjoyed to do tricks like “sit” for a tasty snack 💗 #hostilevalleyliving #saffronandnutmeg #homesteading #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #punkrockhomesteader #modernfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farming #mainefarm #permaculture #pigsofinstagram #piglets #tamworths #tamworthpigs

If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be a stay at home, homeschooling, homesteading mamma, I would have laughed at you! I was working in Corporate America as a finance manager and I didn’t have kids. I was climbing the corporate ladder, thinking of having kids in the future. Fast forward to today - life is so different! And I’m 100% in love with this life! I have 3 kids I adore, I love cooking from scratch for everyone and I love homeschooling (though I have my moments). I get excited planting my gardens, finding new recipes and exploring with my kids. It’s a crazy life and it’s not always sunshine and rainbows but it’s my crazy life and I love it! Stay at home moms, working moms, and all those in between, find what you truly love, find what gives you life and live it! Take a chance and see what works for you - you never know, it might include homemade hamburger rolls! 😄😍 #livethelifeyoulove ❤️ #fromscratchcooking #mycrazylife 💖

The glory of the morning garden. Is it any wonder why I work so hard to make this a haven for my family when you see it like this? Right here is where I talk to God, my chapel, my holy place. Right here is where I ponder the scriptures I have studied throughout the week. Right here is where I teach my children about nature, food, microbe science, hard work, and love. This is my Mecca. This is my peace. ❤️

While I am still against these wind turbines and think they really aren’t as environmentally efficient as they are made out to be, there is a beauty in their design and seeing an old windmill next to one creates such a vivid contrast. #windmillsofinstagram #windturbines #protectourprairies

One of our neighbors brought over starts! There are many things I love about living in this community. The sharing and support of those who live here is more than I have seen living anywhere else. Maybe it is how secluded we are from others. Perhaps it’s just the nature of those who gravitate to these rural areas. Whatever the reason, I am so thankful we live here! #starts #friendlyneighbors #mountaincommunity #homesteadblogger #homesteader #homesteadlife #homesteadersofinstagram #blogger #mommyblogger #countrylife #farmHer #modernhomesteader #bigfootlittlehomestead #norcalhomesteader #womenwhohomestead

Water dog meet water ducks. Our standard poodle, Bode, loves every living creature...a little too much. His enthusiasm for all things can be a bit overwhelming for whomever is the focus of his affection. He has so much love to give but so few return the sentiment 😅 But he doesn’t let that get him down! He’s very resilient at trying to get any creature to love him. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn’t, but he carries on without a care in the world🐩 . #pawsitivelyfarmhouse @the_frenchiefarm @craftingupcuteness @melaraee_woodsliving @thedayplantation @my_new_kentucky_home @birchandcotton #farmdog #farmpupfriday #farmpup #standardpoodle #standardpoodlesofinstagram #ducksofinstagram #ducklings

You guys. I don’t write about it often, but I want to mention it today. My photography. I know I’m amateur level and I am super critical of my photos, but I had the chance to walk the fields at the neighboring farm. And I don’t know how to explain the feeling except it reminded me of where I grew up. And I’m in love with every single photo. No hyper-criticism from me for this batch of photos. I put them all on the blog. I really do hope you will go check them out. The farm is just stunning and hard to not take a good photo. And it reminds me of home. Did I mention that? Have a happy day friends. And cut yourself some slack while you’re at it. I’m going to try to do the same. ❤️❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #homemade #blogher #modernhomesteader #womenwhomake #mycountryhome #nystatephotos #igerscatskills #theartofslowliving #northernappalachia #sullivancatskills #visitcatskills

We still have TWO of our nine kids from the 2019 kidding season available for sale! Sid is a cute buckling with brown and white markings. While he would be a great herdsire, he has the loving personality that would suit a pet wether just as well. Roxy is a beautiful black and white girl with steel blue eyes and energy to boot! Pricing and details via the link in my profile or my stories highlight “2019 Kids”. Both kids will be available for pick up only by the end of July and MUST go to homes with other goats or go together.

O’Neill was dishin’ out the lovin’ earlier. He may have nibbled on me a time or two, but he’s so darn sweet that I don’t even care! It’s been a week since we’ve had sunshine like today and our animals are all so happy! We woke up this morning to another chick not doing so hot and this time it seems like something neurological or may be due to some type of deficiency. I’m doing all I can for her, but if you’re up for sending her some good vibes, she could certainly use them! On the plus side, she is alert and eating and drinking, so I’ll take that as a win for now. I have to shoutout my dear friend, @kafoster86 , for this T-shirt- it is me in a nutshell! #haygirlhay

My favorite breakfast hangout lately. Strawberry Hill. I remember when we first moved here, I saw this hill covered in grass and weeds and old stumps right where I wanted to put my garden and thought, this would be the perfect place for tons of strawberries.... To have that little idea become a reality is pretty cool.There is literally nothing better than morning walks through the garden, cuppa joe in hand, hunting for ripe berries for breakfast. It's my own personal slice of heaven. #strawberries #strawberryhill #backtoedengardener #hugelkultur #backtoedengarden #backtoedengardening #backtoeden #gardensofinstagram #gardenerofinstagram #organic #organicgarden #organicgardening #organicgardener #modernhomestead #modernhomesteader #modernhomesteading #growyourown #growfood #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram

It’s almost my favorite time of the year—county fair season! I grew up spending my summers at the County Fair, getting my animals ready to show and running around with my friends. In all my years of 4-H and FFA I showed a bit of everything; horses, cattle, poultry, rabbits, the list goes on and on. . Even though I’ve aged out of showing at the county fair and I don’t have any kids of my own yet, I still love supporting the kids that are showing now. It’s the best learning and growing experience you can have as a child and I’m so glad I had that opportunity. . I snapped this pic of the cutest little Boer goat at last year’s fair while her young owner told me all about his success showing her. He was beaming with pride and that’s what it’s all about. . #countyfair #4H #FFA #boergoat #farmkids #goatsofinstagram #goats #meatgoats

There are some adorable flock adventures happening at @hostilevalleyliving ’s farm! Repost: Our geese have adopted the ducklings. Now almost a month old, our batch of ducklings from @mypetchickenofficial is just starting to feather out, and thanks to some beautiful weather they've been spending their days wandering around the fields with the big birds. I was a little bit concerned about how the geese would treat them at first, but our two Buff Toulouse have become protective and doting parents. It's the best case scenario because I do not worry about them as much, and they can learn the ropes of the barnyard from their guardians. #hostilevalleyliving #mypetchickenofficial #homesteading #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #punkrockhomesteader #modernfarmer #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farming #mainefarm #permaculture #geeseofinstagram #getgeese #keepgeese #ducklings #ducksofinstagram #repost

In the garden today! 💚🌱💚 I still am in awe every time I plant something in these gardens. I mean honestly I do almost nothing and they grow amazing!! The spaghetti squash plant was from a squash o bought from the store and cooked it for the family, out of the center compost grew this amazing squash plant!! I am absolutely amazed by the awesomeness of God and His goodness to us.

The views from up here are my favorite. • • The barn remodel is slowly but surely coming together. The roof is about 50% complete! This guy is certainly working his butt off to get it done, despite erratic weather and lots of rainy days. • • This barn project has taught us both something really important, the desire to be able to work on projects together. I haven’t been able to help with the barn because I’ve been swamped with the garden, and Chris doesn’t have a lot of time to help with the garden because he’s been busting his butt off on the barn. It’s exhausting and lonely doing projects by yourself all day long. I look forward to completing projects side by side, working together as a team.
