One man's weed is another man's salad! Most of the plants that have been labeled as weeds are actually very beneficial. Purslane is a nutrient rich addition to a salad, plantain is a valuable medicinal plant, and lamb's quarters is excellent steamed. #purslane #plantain #lambsquarters #eatyourweeds #eatyouryard #tinyfarms #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming #organicfarming #frontyardfarms #suburbanfarms #growyourown #homegrownisbest #growanewculture #restorativeagriculture #foodismedicine

I had a few people ask me to post my butter “recipe”. It’s not exactly a recipe, more of a process. So, here’s what it takes to get that glorious, nutrient dense butter I posted earlier. + The cow. The cow on grass. The cow moved every single day to restore the pastures, add biodiversity and fertility to the land, and to keep her nourished. That same cow handled slowly, respectfully, kindly, and with genuine reverence. + After three years, of breaking winter cow trough ice daily and filling my bra with boob sweat in the summer, we arrive at calving. I’m skipping a zillion things to fast forward to the butter bits. + We hand milk our cows after the calf takes her share. Our calves stay with their mamas and we get more than enough for our needs when they’re done. + After hand milking, it’s into the house for filtering and immediate chilling. We get different amounts of milk depending on whether we milk once or twice a day, where the cow is in her lactation cycle, what her feed is like (pasture quality/on hay supplementation in the fall or not), and how much the calf is taking. We only feed pasture and, in the winter, organic hay. That means her production isn’t as high as it could be. Still, on grass only, nursing her calf, and being milked only once a day, she still gives us 3-3.5 gallons of milk/day. + Every three days I skim the cream. We use antique butter churns and hand churn the cream until it has its metamorphosis into butter. There is nothing quicker that’s better. + We drain off the (real) buttermilk and culture it. Then I wash the butter in ice cold, deep well water. Again and again and again. Then I knead it and wash it and wash it and knead it until the water runs clear. Then I salt it and smack the shit out of it with wood paddles to get the water out. + At this point I either fill glass butter jars if I want straight butter or I put the butter in a pot to start the ghee making process. Three days of cream usually results in 4-5 one cup glass jars of butter that I store in the freezer. That’s it! A gazillion hours of work and time and love and passion. Every second worth it.

There's a peeper in the ashwagandha! At the beginning of the season this plant was not doing well. The cucumber beetles were demolishing it. Instead of using pesticides to kill the bugs, we fed the plant to make it stronger. It worked! Within a week we were seeing abundant new growth and flowers. Eventually some natural pest control showed up to help 💚🐸 #growyourmedicine #naturalpestcontrol #ashwagandha #peeperfrog #tinyfarms #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming #organicfarming #frontyardfarms #suburbanfarms #growyourown #homegrownisbest #growanewculture #restorativeagriculture #foodismedicine

What most people know is that atmospheric Carbon (Co2) means pollution. What most people don t know however is that soil needs Carbon and strives from its presence found in large quantity in topsoil. Soil that s rich in Carbon holds water, like a sponge. Carbon rich soils are more resilient to drought, wildfires and flooding. By contrast, water that falls on carbon depleted soil streams off causing erosions and leaching out nutrients. Over the past 150 years, because of big intensive agriculture, 50 to 80 percent of Carbon in the topsoil has gone airborne. The antidote to this rapid oxidation is regenerative agriculture: working the land with the goal of building topsoil, encouraging the growth of deep rooted plants & increasing biodiversity. Andy s intentions at his farm focus on growing soil not crops and increase carbon levels fixed into the soil. In turn, land productivity, plant diversity and resilience are improved tremendously as well as fixing carbon into the land, where it belongs. . . Info from conversations with Andy at Naroques as well as in the brilliant book “cows will save the planet” by Judith Schwartz. #soilhealth #soilassociation #carboncoalition #carbon #restorativeagriculture #regain #biodiversity #deeproots #topsoil #naroques #andycato

Late August, Patch of the Americas. Blue corn that we’ve been growing and saving seed from since 2015, an old variety of watermelon that is new to us - Navajo Sweet from @highdesertseed - various winter squashes, summer squash, cucumbers, runner beans, okra and amaranth, flanked by tomatoes, tomatillos, and speckled throughout with flowers. We have had a big season so far, and are excited to be in the harvest portion of this particular ceremony. We are only in our second season, and therefore in a very steep part of the farm learning curve. But we feel good about all the lessons, and feel like we are - mostly, hopefully - learning those lessons well. They will take care of us if we can catch ‘em! Already looking forward to how we are going to adjust and change things to move toward and closer to our values, which are: good health, happiness, and quality of life for our family, our land, our community, and all of the concentric circles that emanate from there. May the goodness of life touch all people and peoples, all places and things, and may it gain hold and rein in the world, once again, for many generations to come. 🌎🌱🙏😄 #goodthings #restorativeagriculture #youngfarmers

Beautiful māmaki - did you know māmaki is found and grown only ONE place in the 🌍, the Hawaiian archipelago? Planting māmaki, which is what we brew all our teas from, is an act of conservation as māmaki supports restorative agriculture and provides critical habitat for our endemic, pulelehua, also know as the Kamehameha Butterfly❤️ #māmaki #māmakitea #mamaki #pulelehua #kamehamehabutterfly #restorativeagriculture #sustainableagriculture #hawaii #hawaiigrown #hawaiilife #conservation

Meet Sarah Flack. She's a world-renown grazing expert helping livestock farmers across the country manage their animals to increase the health and sustainability of their farms. "The essence of Flack’s advice is that farmers can use the very process of grazing animals to create healthier soil, more robust pastures, improved animal welfare, and a more financially sustainable operation. Though each farm is different, she promotes a few universal principles, such dividing pasture into paddocks—the more the better—and rotating animals through them. She also advises to graze animals in each paddock for a short period of time and vary the lengths of time each paddock is allowed to recover. This approach keeps the plants from being grazed too short and gives them enough time to recover, yielding better, more nutritious feed and spurring the growth of more perennial forage. At the same time, the animals’ waste and the tramping action of their hooves helps enrich the soil. Farmers save time and money by having to do less tilling, seeding, and fertilizing of their fields and by having to buy less additional feed to support their livestock. “It’s the only way I know of where we can actually use the animals to improve ecosystem health,” Flack says. “All of the other forms of livestock agriculture are, to at least a certain degree, mining the ecosystem of resources or relocating them in ways that are not healthy.” We admire your leadership, Sarah! #regenerativeag https://buff.ly/2tiCu67

I recently acquired these apple juice x frozen margarita seeds for a specific purpose. I’m hoping I get lucky and get a mom that is Apple juice dominant to become my new strain #demapples. I have several 50 year old apple trees on my property planted in 1977 and I wanted to get a super Appley strain that I will supplement in the fall light dep w fresh squeezed apple juice into the feeding regimen.

Our honeybees love radish flowers! When we were learning to garden we were taught that once a radish bolts it's gone by, but we like to let things flower here to feed our pollinators, to observe the life cycle of the plants, and to save seeds. Did you know that immature radish seed pods are edible? They have a mild radish flavor and are great for fermenting. . #feedthebees #letitbloom #flowersoftinyfarm #radishpods #wecanpicklethat #tinyfarms #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming #organicfarming #frontyardfarms #suburbanfarms #growyourown #homegrownisbest #growanewculture #restorativeagriculture #seedsaving

We have an abundance of strawberries! A quick and easy way to preserve them for later is to smash them up with some honey and freeze them in ice cube trays. They can be used in smoothies or eaten like popsicles. 💚🍓 I didn't measure, but I'd guess there was about 2 quarts of berries and 2 big spoons of honey. Squish it with a fork or potato masher and let it sit for a bit to get juicy then spoon into ice cube trays and freeze. Once it's frozen into cubes, move them into a sealed container. #strawberriesfordays #strawberriesandhoney #tinyfarms #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming #organicfarming #frontyardfarms #suburbanfarms #growyourown #homegrownisbest #growanewculture #restorativeagriculture

“People told us it couldn’t be done. But that didn’t stop them from telling us how it should be done if we were to try. We immediately discounted their advice. It didn’t seem particularly pertinent to listen to people who said it was impossible” Learn more about how David & Mariah Boatright made the impossible possible by creatively putting together a custom grazing operation with no land of their own. On top of that, they created @fedfromthefarm , a metropolitan buying club serving central Missouri, to connect consumers to nutrient dense foods raised in a way that restores the environment.

Poultry Processing station. Sun and fresh air are your best friends in production. Wood and stainless steel are your next best friends. The sun and air sanitize and keep everything fresh, wood has anti microbial properties that combined with sun leave a cleaner and more friendly environment than bleach. We also use vinegar for its antibacterial properties. Just a few more reasons to go with pastured poultry from Wovoka Ranch instead of the “other guys” 😁 @polyfacefarm is our inspiration. #wovokaranch #pasturedpoultry #cleaneats #healthy #wholefoods #cleanmeats #betterthanorganic #poultryprocessing #familytime #farmlife #regenerativeagriculture #restorativeagriculture

The Mexican sunflower bloomed yesterday on the summer solstice! This beauty is described by some people as a weed, but in our experience weeds are usually a good thing. Mexican sunflower leaves can be used as a fertilizer and the flowers provide variety for our pollinators.
