We did it. All the triticale is in the ground. Bring on the rain! The last few days have been a major hustle. We haven’t had any rain, and planned on hiring someone to plant our triticale. They were scheduled for tomorrow. As soon as we saw rain in the forecast we knew we couldn’t wait. My dad called up a farmer to ask if we could borrow his grain drill. And we started planting. . . We finished a little after 3pm today. Still have work to do on our drains but we are ready for the rain. Our alfalfa needs it and hopefully the triticale will germinate! . .

Find someone who brings you an @estherthewonderpig calendar just to make you smile, and takes you out for beer and a pizza because you’re crabby. We might argue like an old married couple, and our kids are dogs, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 👫💕

Harvesting a little early this week for our Salad Box CSA due to needing all day Wednesday to cook, smoke, grill, bake, and prep an entire Thanksgiving meal from scratch. We are very excited for this Thanksgiving especially because we all chipped in and bought @meag_emerson a Traeger and she’s already become a grill master! The weather feels like something is brewing soon. The temps are cold at night yet it’s not as dry as usual with humidity close to 100%. The air feels thick and heavy, hopefully showing we have some rains coming or at the very least we have mountain snow coming to help out our aquifers. Fall and winter are our favorite seasons, with spring a close second. Enjoy the short clip of us running around the farm and harvesting for our loyal clientele.

Brussel sprouts were one of my favorite things to grow this year. They start out as tiny little buds in between the leaves and slowly grow over 100+ days into the brussel sprouts you know and love. Can’t wait to start these all over again next year! 🌱 • • • #thesunshinefarmny #sunshinefarmny #harvest #gardenharvest #eattherainbow #farmfresh #growyourown #growyourfood #organic #organicfood #organicgardening #organicgarden #smallfarm #organicfarm #wholefoods #plantbased #hobbyfarm #vegetarianhomestead #homestead #homesteading #upstateny #upstatenewyork #brussel #brusselsprouts #brusselsprout

I used to think I did not like Pacific Northwest winters with its long nights, frosty mornings, and scattered sunlight. I’ve changed my mind. I’m appreciating the rhythm of short days and mastering the art of hibernation. Last night we went to bed at 7pm and I thought for sure we would be up at three in the morning. But when 3AM rolled around we were all sleeping sweetly in our one big family bed, limbs inner twined, snuggling under thick comforters and feather blankets- and I could not help but relate to the roots we’ve been planting. Babes on either side of my body-Breathing sweetly, full bellies, warm bodies, growing by moonlight-like the dormant roots of perennials, waiting out the winter months until the sun comes out long enough to warm the earth for another sonic spring-time bloom. . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwmom #oregon #southernoregon #family #familylife #smallfarm #homestead #cosleeping #winter #hibernation #garden #plan #plants #plantlady #vibranthealth #permaculture #fewerbetterthings #slowliving #goodlife #happymom #iloveit #sonicbloom

I think the version of meat being raised at @mccauleyfamilyfarm is pretty close to what you envisioned as a little kid before you saw some horrifying documentary. Bird, pigs and lambs running around in the grass seeming to enjoy their lives before they enrich ours. I get that to some people killing any animal is not something they want to do. The reality is though meat is going. To be with us for a long time and it’s pretty cool that you can still find places raising meat in a way you can feel good about and know the extra money you spent is having an effect. . . . #far @life #smallfarm #coloradofarm

I struggle to find words that match the complexity of my feelings. So, I’ll just keep it simple. I’m beyond thankful for our turkey “Maple” who sacrificed his life to bless a home full of family and friends this Thanksgiving. He will be our first “Home Grown” Turkey to make an appearance on our table. He will never be forgotten and always appreciated for furthering our desires and ambitions towards raising our own meat. ⬅️Swipe to see our handsome guy.

I am returned to the Catskills to watch over this beautiful 1830s farmhouse and its sheep, goats, turkeys, ducks, chickens, cats, and dog. The view’s a little snowier than it was this time last year, but no less lovely. My heart is full.

'We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.' For over half of my life I have owned and managed a rare breed farm. Not a single day goes by that I don't consider the future of the breeds under my care and if my child or grandchildren will be fortunate enough to know them firsthand like I have. Will they get to harvest the beautiful beans which Cherokee's carried over the Trail of Tears? help a newborn Highland calf or Blackface lamb suckle? watch a Newfoundland foal stand on wobbly legs for the first time? Will they have the opportunity with so many species at risk of being lost forever…. I believe that it takes a LIFETIME of commitment and diligence to not only raise but to properly breed, select and maintain the standard and traits they are known for such as hardiness, mothering & flavor. It's hard work. It's challenging. It's damn rewarding. It's NOT for the faint of heart. I challenge you to ask what breed you are purchasing be it fibre, meat, dairy, grain, vegetables or flowers. It can make a difference, not only in flavor but genetic diversity. I believe it is fundamental that we work together and support each other to ensure a colorful diverse future for generations to come. #farmlife #genetics #futuregeneration #geneticdiversity #rarebreeds #ask #votewithyourfork #organiclife #organicfarm #sustainable #slowlife #slowfoodmovement #slowfarm #farm #scottishhighland #highlandcows #notforthefaintofheart #colorful #diversity #smallfarm #history #foodforchange #import #conservation #dowhatyoulove #whatdoesthefuturehold

FINISHED with... our new germination chamber 🙌. As a grower of vegetables I may get excited about odd things; like an old fridge converted into a sauna for seeds 😎👌🌴🌱🌱. Germination can be really challenging in cold Central Oregon, yet is critical to success of the season. The @roguefarmcorps ladies came to the farm and had never used power tools, leveled, cut, chopped, etc... Our final project for the year was for them to design and build a germination chamber to help give our seeds consistent warm and humid temperatures, so they pop up quickly! @rubyerubyerubyerubye and @pquondog put all their farm hack knowledge to use, and excelled with their drills and skills! We even mixed in a little electrical work 🙌 . So grateful for community during projects like these and the ability to learn from other farmers ( @broadforkfarmers @47thavefarm ) who are all being creative and sharing solutions for growing food in the most challenging of conditions! #womenwhofarm #iamamodernfarmer #seedtotable #roguefarmcorps #womenwhowork #farmer #smallfarm #foodtank

Venison heart fresh out of a 6 day curing brine, put into a vacuum bag to braise in the sous vide for 24 hours with carrot celery onion and a sachet of Corning spices. I also added ice cubes that will melt in the bath to provide the braising liquid. ‭ #smallfarm #azfood #azfoodie #azfoodporn #foodie #azfoodporn #foodie #cuisineomane #foodspo #foodporn #foodpreservationist #noleftovers #backyardbounty #sousvide #maldonsalt #instagramaz #igersphx #az365 #notahamsandwich #greenhouseonwoodland #comfortfood #womenwhofarm #eeeeeats #forkyeah #mountaingrown

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for... introducing the Fall 2018 piglets of Whippoorwill Farms SC! • It’s been an incredibly emotional last few days. From the preparation of leaving the farm, to actually doing it, seeing family many of whom have aged and changed since my last visit in April, Mavis having her litter without me, saying hard goodbyes to family and then driving through the night to return to the farm. I’d like to say it all went off without a hitch but that would just be too easy. • Mavis farrowed her litter sometime between midnight and 530am yesterday. She had 5 live piglets but 4 arrived as stillborn or died shortly after birth. At the end of the day, Mother Nature can be cruel, but she knows best and the others must not have been healthy enough for life outside of the womb. • Of course I have spent countless hours blaming myself and recounting the “what if’s” but reworking what I could’ve done differently in my head over and over again is getting me nowhere. I have decided to grieve those piglets and dote and love on the remaining piglets as I would have all 9. • Mavis is healthy and feeding all of the piglets. She is the perfect combination of enjoying motherhood again and being protective over her brood of babes. She is hungry, much thinner and content. One of the piglets has shown signs of Scours which can be common and is luckily treatable. The entire litter is being treated for it as a precautionary measure as well now. • If all of them continue to grow over the next few days, we will possibly open the farm over the coming days for piglet visits. But more information will be released at a later time. For now, while the piglets are still gaining strength and health, there will be no visits to the farm to visit the piglets. • • • #onthefarm #inthefield #lifeonthefarm #humanelyraised #smallfarm #localfarm #supportlocal #buylocal #smallbusiness #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #sustainablefarm #farm #farmlife #lifeonthefarm #country #animals #animallovers #farmer #savannahga #downtownsavannah #blufftonsc #bluffton #lowcountry #southcarolina #womenwhofarm #raiseyourownfood

Piggers are enjoying winter I think, now that their mud hole is all froze up they can keep their feet dry! I was feeling bad as we had such a wet fall, there was just nothing thay could be done to make their run dry😢 and if i moved them it would only solve the problem for a few days until the next area was a mud hole... Alas lets hope for a dry spring!!

Because a workout doesn’t happen until all the doggos (and Peter 🐷) eat. Which gives the perfect amount of time for my unicorn juice to kick in and be ready to lift some weights. 💪🏼 We are doing a squat challenge today in my Healthier for the Holidays free group, so fifty squats will be added at the end! 🦄🙌🏼

It has been super quiet on the Denti Di Leone channels. Huge changes. We bought a farm. This one isn't a tiny house, and comes with five fenced acres and a 72' barn. Needless to say the girls will be thrilled with their new digs, no mud in this barn!! We closed Friday and since then have been painting and moving. . . . . . . #dentidileonehomestead #part2 #Indiana #indianalife #indiana_of_insta #indianagirl #hoosierstate #hoosier #hoosiergrammers #hoosierlife #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #farmsteading #farmstead #farmher #smallfarm #smallfarmer

Turning this crate of tomatoes into some ahhhhhhmazing tomato paste. 🍅 I was a little intimidated to make tomato paste the first time I did it. It took a long time, I didn’t completely have all the equipment I needed, but I gave it a go anyways... It was probably the best thing I’ve made all summer with our veggies! The richness of the flavor was amazing, definitely worth the 4 hr cook down time. I credit most of the amazingness to our scrumptious tomatoes though, it’ll only taste as good as the tomatoes you make it with. 🍅 If you’ve never tried homemade tomato paste I definitely recommend it. It can be used in so many dishes to add a rich flavor! 🍅 #herloomtomatoes #tomatopaste #homemade #realfood #grownwithlove #homegrown #womenwhofarm #farmingwithkids #smallfarm #eatlocal #growyourownfood #farmlife #homesteading #preserving #canning #sandiegofarm

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being out of my mind, would it be weird if I made the girls stockings for Christmas? 🤷🏻‍♀️🎄🐔This wreath is made on a 24” frame, but fills out to 36”, and I think it really adds a nice touch to the coop, but imagine what it would look like on the front of your house! ✨❄️✨ . . . . . #annapolisvalley #novascotia #chickencoop #backyardchickens #smallfarm #homestead

Got the first 3 beds planted and irrigation finished at the new market plot! My latest video in bio is about how to put away your drip tape for the season easily. I'll be having episodes on how I built this new drip system including the new drip manifold that makes it incredibly easy to work with each bed drip tape by yourself. Stay tuned!

It’s not EASY putting yourself out there everyday, sharing your life, in hopes that someone somewhere will feel comfort or inspiration knowing I’m just like them. It’s not EASY when I have bad days, when my stomach feels out of whack, or I would rather be laying in bed eating a dozen donuts (jk Justin would never let me eat in bed 🤣). It’s not EASY, but it’s worth it. . . Every time I get a message saying I motivated someone to work out, or helped someone with a healthier recipe, or that my girls are losing weight + gaining confidence, it makes every moment that wasn’t easy WORTH IT. Your journey might not be linear, but every day you show up for YOUR goals and aspirations, whatever they might be, is a success. My goal for today? Feel confident and happy when I workout, and NOT feel the need to judge myself by a scale or measuring tape. 🦄💪🏼
