There's a pretty good chance we will have a frost tonight so we picked the rest of the pumpkins. We harvested close to 100lbs this season!. Don't you think this almost-ripe pie pumpkin is the prettiest? #newenglandpiepumkin #amishcrookneckpumpkin #roastingweather #weregonnaneedabiggerscale #tinyfarms #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming #organicfarming #frontyardfarms #suburbanfarms #growyourown #homegrownisbest #growanewculture #restorativeagriculture #foodismedicine

today economics for happiness conference finished pointing out the importance of local, organic and fair FOOD in the cities. local markets are amazing but we also need networks and independent business that supply the “monthly” veggie and fruit purchase. big supermarkets don’t value farmers enough as on average they only receive back 20% of the price you pay - from which only 50% pays their though work with the land. 🥦🍌🥑🍉🍋🍅🥒🍆 we need to remember that everyone eats 3 times per day and while moving towards a happier society, REAL FOOD NEEDS TO BE IN THE CENTER! #regenerativeagriculture #economicsofhappiness2018 #bristol #saopaulo #bancadaativista #elenao #foodforchange #slowfood #terramadre2018 #iinhealthcoach #planetorplastic #hamiltonhouse #tabaccofactorytheatre #regenerativefarming #institutochao #comidadoamanha #belagil #permaculture #sachamama #amazonia #schumachercollege #dartington #mercadaomunicipal #zerowaste #thisisnotthetruth

There's nothing glamorous here, but this is us 90% of the time. 😏 Today was our last market day of the year and we came home to plant garlic and move sheep. These boys are always with us. Sometimes they help and sometimes they go exploring. Tonight we were gifted a beautiful sunset and decided to get some pictures. ❤️

Cover crop? Is it a good idea to plant a fall/winter cover crop? Yes. I’ve never planted a cover crop before, but after some research, I can definitely see an advantage to planting one. Cover crops, or green manures, are a great way to protect your garden from weeds and soil erosion over the winter period. As well as protecting your soil, cover crops can be dug into the earth before spring, improving the soil ecosystem and feeding your plants with essential nutrients. I’m planting winter rye this year. Cereal grains like winter rye are fast growers, sprouting quickly from seed to form a thick mat that blankets soil. This living ground cover smothers cool-season weeds. Winter rye is also deep rooted which helps keep the soil loose. #covercrops #winterrye #protectthesoil #buildsoil #soilnutrition #healthysoil #healthysoilhealthyfood #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #naturalfarming #backtonatural #backtobasics

these days, these intense days when we are searching for solutions to ecological crises, i’ve been reading about regenerative farming. i’m beginning to understand how people are working with animals and plants to build soil, to sink carbon, to increase organic matter, to absorb more water into the land, simply enough, by moving animals as they would move naturally in herds. they’ll set up animals to graze, browse, forage an area briefly, trample much of it, manure it, then move them on to fresh ground, not to return for some time. the roots of the plants, mirroring their aerial parts, self-prune and break down into new soil. the parasite cycles are broken as the hosts move away. mulched and fertilised, increasing organic matter slows and sinks water. carbon draws down and everything grows stronger, rapidly. intensive rotational grazing. understanding these principles on paper is one thing. in practice, translating to this land, at a small scale, with these particular animals and plants is a process of experimentation. for now i’m observing what the kid goats eat and how they like to move on the land. if i stand firm with their leads, being the tether, and watch what they choose to graze and browse versus when i allow them to lead. how they graze the orchard or browse in the thicket. how i might move them with fences. observing how the chickens and the ducks move on the land in different weather and thinking about how we might rest areas of the garden and open others to them while meeting their needs and our own. how grazing geese might contribute. i’m not regenerating grassland so much as garden, orchard, food forest, but the principles ought to scale. for now i’m playing with how a regenerative practice might work with daily life that resembles backyard chicken homesteading more than pasturing herds of cows or sheep. translating the language of electric fencing a field to the sort of fences one might live with, in effect, at home in one’s garden. regenerative practice the way my family might engage with it, to not only restore our own soil, not only raise healthy animals, plants and people, but to actually contribute to a positive carbon cycle.

Here is Promise, our first LOMAH calf, born July 5th. She is queen of the babies, and knows it! She rounds them all up in games of tag and chase, but has a soft spot for Avett. ❤️ For months before she could actually bite and chew, she would open her mouth on some grass and slobber it up, then pretend to chew it! With no success or actual sustenance, she was right there working and heading toward her future. I’m sure it’s animal practice, like how kittens play and pounce to learn to hunt, but I’d never seen it before and it reminds me of little girls sipping pretend tea. 😍 . . . #learningfromanimals #grassfedbeef #heifercalf #angus #limousin #firstcalf #rotationalgrazingisamazing #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #leaderfollower #permaculture #lomah

Happy sows lazing about in the sun with their piglets 🐷...Raising our pigs out-of-doors gives us ample opportunity to observe them in natural settings. These mums are housed in a portable nursery so their piglets are safe from foxes 🦊, but the piglets are still able to learn to root and forage for goodies! The foraging action gently ploughs the soil, opening it up and aerating it for future grass/pasture growth! #buildingbettersoils. . . . . . #organicfinefoodcompany #soilmicrobiome #healthysoilhealthyplanet #certifiedorganic #healthysoilhealthypeople #regenerativefarming #joondalupgrowersmarket #knowyourfood #localfarmer #perthfood

This is Scott from @beaver_creek_farms. He’s been a vegetarian for over two years! After some discussions with him about eating organic and non-gmo meat and the ethics and nutrition behind it he decided to take the plunge back into eating meat and to take it one step further.. process his very own chicken! So he came over today and did just that. Always love when people want to learn how it’s done and you gain a much higher respect with the food you eat. Thanks again for coming by Scott!

Strike a pose! I’d like to introduce you to our third chick is a #mottledjava This little girl is full of spice... she carries herself with confidence and is often the life of the chick brooder party - bolting around in the pine shavings and causing a ruckus. For those reasons, and because she’s clearly very comfortable in front of the camera at such young age, we’ve dubbed her #LorettaYoung 💃🏼🐣 . . . . . . . . . . #babychicks #babychicksofinstagram #chicksofinstagram #mottledjavachicken #lifeoftheparty #strikeapose #childactress #thegalsofthefarmonwilkesroad #thefarmonwilkesroad #browneggs #farmfresheggs #chicken #regenerativefarming #addingtotheflock #sandiego #valleycenter

Two Male Botaox plants we had up at Raleigh Night Market last night with @oakcitycannabis . Always a pleasure educating people on what farming hemp can do for you! Most common question: Q: So how is this legal? Take time to talk to people. Just a 2 minute conversation can change someones negative perception of this beautiful plant drastically! #nchemp #hempnc #raleigh #nightmarket #local #educate #organic #regenerativefarming #strains #oakcity #nc #gottabenc #explorenc #cannabis #cannabiscommunity #overgrow #norlina #research #helpingeducaterpd #information #frieday @eastern_agricutural_consulting

Sweet little kukus! 🐥 Starting with day old chicks, Farmer Max uses traditional regenerative farming 👨‍🌾 techniques to raise them. Once they’re big enough to control their own body temperature they are moved to airy pens on open pasture, which are moved daily to give the kukus access to new dudus 🐛 and grasses, which gives them their delicious flavour. Moving the chickens also ensures that the grasses 🌱and soil is fertilized and regenerated with the chicken’s manure. . . @farmermaxkenya #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #chicken #chicks #sustainable #knowthesource #farmermax #greenspoonke #buylocal #buildkenya

This night has been a long time coming. Our first beef came home from the butcher today. We couldn’t resist giving it a taste test before we begin selling it at markets this weekend! Pleasantly surprised that it had enough external fat to allow it to be dry aged for nearly 3 weeks, giving it superb flavor. Our cattle are raised gently, given everything they need to keep them happy and healthy. They’re moved daily onto fresh lush pasture filled with no spray alfalfa, clovers, and grasses. Grass fed has never tasted so good... I’m not usually the bragging type, but I just couldn’t be prouder tonight. Look for us this Saturday at the south of the James market @growrva and on Sunday @longsundaymarket in North Stafford to get some of this amazing beef 🥩 A big shout out to our good friends @monroviafarm for the multifaceted mentoring they’ve done with us and for hauling steers to the butcher. We may do things a bit differently, but y’all have been some of the finest folks we could have ever hoped to work with. #grassfinished #grassfedbeef #grassfed #happycows #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #stressfreecattle #beyondorganic #regenerativefarming #delicious #steak #localbeef

Regenerative agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle. Specifically, regenerative agriculture is a holistic land management practice that leverages the power of photosynthesis in plants to close the carbon cycle, and build soil health, crop resilience and nutrient density. #rebotanicals #hemp #hempoil #organichempoil #regenerativefarming #hempfarms #hempfarmers #apothecary #plantextracts

#TeamBaldor took a trip to @joycefarms last week, and we're excited about their Heritage Pork program! Their Heritage Pork comes from the Gloucestershire Old Spot (GOS) breed. This heritage breed dates back to the 1800s and is known for its distinctive black spots and floppy ears. It's also known for producing tender, succulent pork that's full of natural flavor. #knowyourfarmer 🐷🐖 . . . . . . #heritagepork #porklover #yummy #farmtotable #regenerativefarming #sustainablemeat #eatmorepork

RIDDELLS CREEK // Come get yourself a delicious pasture raised chicken from us at Riddells Creek Farmers Market this Saturday at the Primary School from 9am - 1pm.

Fading evening light with ChiChi; sweet Jolene is already nodding out and I get the chance to quietly observe. ChiChi is finally gaining weight. Thankfully she's of a robust nature and managed to survive my learning curve and I can only take note of what I did wrong and be grateful I remedied the situation ~ ChiChi was taking 15 to 20 lbs of alfalfa and pouring it into the bucket instead of using it for her own health. This is called milking off her back (I think don't quote me as I spend many an hour second guessing myself) very stripped down take-away is that too much alfalfa is a bad thing, and "grass genetics" don't mean shit if you're grazing a marginally improved farm and not making allowances for it. + So currently ~ 1300lb cow grazes a fresh space of 150ft×150ft every day, plus 25lbs-35lbs of nice grass hay, plus 10lbs leafy alfalfa hay, plus 8lbs grain gives approximately 6 gallons of milk which is unequally divided between a huYOOge heifer calf and a milkmaid. I have no clue if this is efficient or an enormous waste of cash but I can say that we are terrible milk snobs now and her manure is the stuff of legends. #lifeofamilkmaid #housecow #mygirlChiChi #MilkingShorthorn #slowfood #rawmilk #eatingthegoodlife

The cornflowers are FINALLY showing the promise of the colour they’re going to bring to the garden. . I seem to have real trouble getting flowers to grow from seed. Am I the only one who finds them harder than veggies?
