Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius), a member of the Rose family (Rosaceae) along with the other common berries like Blackberry (Rubus spp. many of them) and Black Raspberry (Rubus occidentalis), is a common berry in the Eastern US, especially the Mid-Atlantic.  The fruit ripens after the black raspberries but before the blackberries in late June / early July.  It is an easily identifiable plant by the hairy reddish stems and fruit. Like other berry brambles, the individual stems live for 2 years with only the 2nd year stems bearing fruit. Like other raspberries, wineberry leaves have a white underside and when picked the berry detaches from the receptacle, whereas blackberries have a green underside to their leaves and do not detach from the receptacle (you can see this by looking at the portion of the berry where it attaches to the stem) Berries are probably the easiest way to get wild food in your diet as pretty much everyone knows how to identify them. #wineberries #wineberry #wildedibles #wildforaged #eatlocal #eatwild

There was some interest from local media when Rob and Tracey from @havatbenor came to visit this week. . I took this shot of cameraman @chris8video as he was visiting with our bull Rocky. The segment Chris recorded with Bob Buckley will air sometime in August on Fox8 news in Greensboro and will be shared with their 50 sister stations. 🐮🐔🐮 #Pineywoodscattle #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #chickensofinstagram #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #farming #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #greensboronc

When we first raised guineas, the Pineywoods would chase them off when they would roam into the pasture. But they’ve learned that they are no threat to the calves. They now graze side-by-side, the Pineywoods eating grass, the guineas eating fly larvae and bugs. 🐮 #Pineywoodscattle #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #guineafowl #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #farming #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #friendshipgoals #symbiotic

Found another Assassin Bug while harvesting cucumbers this morning. These are great predators to have in the garden, they eat among other pests, potato beetles and Japanese beetles. They will also eat other beneficial insects but the trade off in having less damage to our garden is worth it. 🐮 #assassinbug #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #chickensofinstagram #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #farming #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #beneficialinsects #insectsofinstagram

Wow, what a week! So much has happened and the time has flown! Today was spent learning tons of wild Florida edibles and we had a FEAST! 🍇 A foraged Florida fruit feast! The boys foraged wild passion fruit, grapes, elderberry, cucumbers....and you can see Caleb pictured with his foraged cat tail. 😁 These kids were so into it, they foraged some to take home to their families as well. That's why I do it. Kids will remember this forever and teach their family members regenerative practices to live by along the way. 🌳 One more kids camp down and I'm beat but couldn't be more satisfied. These cool nature loving kids are our future! 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️ #backtoeden #natureswisdom #primitiveskills #ancestralskills #bushcraftboys #naturekids #hikemore #forage #forageflorida #wildcrafters #wildforaged #warlocks #regeneration #wildfood #regenerativelivingschool #wildboys #feral

Hmmm what to do with these ? Teas ? Bath ? Only time will tell 😉 Bee Balm herb is edible and medicinal. All above ground parts of the plant are edible and used as a pot herb, and also used as a flavoring in cooked foods. The flowers make an attractive edible garnish in salads. Bee Balm herb is noted for its fragrance, and is a source of oil of thyme. The fresh or dried leaves are brewed into a refreshing aromatic and medicinal tea. An infusion of young Bee Balm leaves used to form a common beverage in many parts of the United States. Bee Balm leaves and flowers and stems are used in alternative medicine as an antiseptic, carminative, diaphoretic, diuretic and stimulant. An medicinal infusion is used internally in the treatment of colds, catarrh, headaches, and gastric disorders, to reduce low fevers and soothe sore throat, to relieve flatulence, nausea, for menstrual pain, and insomnia. Steam inhalation of the plant can be used for sore throats, and bronchial catarrh (inflammation of the mucus membrane, causing an increased flow of mucus). Externally, Bee Balm is a medicinal application for skin eruptions and infections. Bergamot’s distinctive aroma, found in both the leaf and flower is wonderful for use in potpourri. While a fragrant herb in its own right, Wild Bergamot is not the source of the commonly used Bergamot Essential oil. The red variety is commonly known as Oswego Tea. It was used by colonists in place of English Tea after the Boston Tea Party, when they threw the English tea in the harbor to protest the high taxes imposed on it by the British. Bee Balm was used as a medicinal plant extensively by Native Americans who recognized four varieties that had different odors. Wild Bergamot was used also as an active diaphoretic (sweat inducer) for ceremonial sweat lodges. A decoction of the herb was made into hair pomade. #naturalhealingshoppe #wildbergamot #scarletbeebalm #tea #bath #wildforaged #plantbasedhealing #plantbased

Sweet Mojave Sky, clear enough to see the future. I love going home, I know I haven't been gone for that long but it's so different now, so much has changed but stayed completely the same. So happy to have spent quality time with everyone and to reconnect with my roots again. So many new plants popping up and so much life to be found. Like anything in Vegas, you just have to know where to look! . #onlyinvegas #mojavedesert #desertrain #desertsky #wildharvested #wildnevada #wildforaged #desertmystic #kitchenmysticgoods #mysticwellness #desertwith #mojavemax #selfmademystic #vegasnights #vivalasvegas #welcometofabulouslasvegas #mountainmystic #yerbasanta #desertsage

Chanterelles grow wild all over Georgia and lots of other places all summer long, and they’re easy to prepare: Coat them with a bit of oil and your favorite spices, and grill for a few minutes on each side till they have grill marks and are tender to the touch. See link in profile for a more elaborate recipe including black lentils and pine nut cream. . . . . . . #whatveganseat #veganfoodshare #veganaf #vegans #veganism #vegan #consciouseating #consciousliving #raiseyourvibration #plantlife #plantprana #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #chanterelles #locallyforaged #foraged #eatlocal #wildforaged

My most recently bottled tincture is wild-harvested USNEA🌲 . . Sometimes referred to as “Old man’s beard”, for it is a long stringy lichen that you have probably seen growing off trees deep in the forest where the air is clean and crisp. . . A lichen is the perfect symbiosis of an algae and a fungus. So dope! It’s constituents are bioavailable and contain strong antibacterial properties, making it a significant herb in treating resistant bacteria. . . Traditionally used throughout the world for skin infections, (as it is now a chief herb in my anti-bacterial salve), abscesses, upper respiratory and lung infections, vaginal infections, fungal infections, and more. This herb is VAST and highly medicinal. It has been really fun to work with, and a strong teacher! I would love to know how you might be using Usnea or may have been in relationship to it.💚 . . #usnea #lichen #algae #fungus #tincture #usneatincture #herbs #plants #medicine #bioavailable #beauty #antibacterial #antibiotic #plantmedicine #apothecary #herbal #health #wellness #backyard #healthcare #wildforaged #wildharvest

So you have a bit of a Caveman in you, do you? I know a lot of individuals that are not only Paleo or Keto, but they are also very caveman! Wild foraging is an up and coming, popular hobby, and it truly puts a new meaning to the term “Caveman Diet”! As an herbalist and wild foraging enthusiast, I'll be including blogs in the lifestyle category of my site on basic foraging and identification of wild, edible plants. #paleojourneyandlifestyle #paleolifestyle #paleofood #paleoeating #paleoeats #livingwell #delicious #instagood #love #wildforaging #wildforaged #paleo #cavemandiet #cavemanlifestyle #cavemanlife #herbalism #paleojourney #paleoblog

Each of our calves has a different personality. Whiskey is one of the most confident. Just a week old and she’s showing some real attitude. They are all curious, but she couldn’t help but crane her neck to see what the older calves were doing behind me. They were sneaking up on me, making sure I didn’t mess with their kid sister. . This innate protectiveness and care is one of the most surprising traits I’ve witnessed in the Pineywoods herd. Although there is a hierarchy, it’s not uncommon to see the matriarch grooming the cow that’s lowest on the totem pole or caring for her calf. 🐮 #Pineywoodscattle #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #chickensofinstagram #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #farming #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #seeksimplicity #gotobeNC

When we let the Pineywoods into new grass, they strut, they gallup, but they don’t stroll into it to get that first bite. They are just as fond of eating tree branches as they are grass - if you look closely you can see Razz chewing on it before the grass. Unlike many commercial breeds, this varied diet has been with them for over 500 years, many of which they ran wild. This history has also imparted a disease and pest resistance that commercial cattle lack as well. What does this mean for the bottom line? It means that we don’t have to buy as much hay during droughts or winter and it reduces vet bills significantly. Good business sense in a risky industry like farming. 🐮 #Pineywoodscattle #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #chickensofinstagram #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #eatrealfood #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #seeksimplicity #northcarolina
