Homestead Life

Welcome!

Welcome!  It's been a long time coming (and working with 3 different people) to finally find someone who understood my vision and my passion for this herbal, homestead life!  She started from scratch and built this beautiful place in just a few weeks - amazing! ...

Dear Marketing World….

Dear Marketing World, I know you are infatuated with me.  This is obvious since you can't stop calling me, mailing me, emailing me and even texting me...at all hours.... even when the world is sleeping you are trying to sneak a little time together.  Shame on you! I...

Please welcome the new addition to our homestead!

Call us crazy! (you probably should!)  The Farmer and I felt the homestead was missing something, and we are practical people, so we decided to make that our anniversary gift to each other this year.  Yep! We bought a new critter. Trouble is this particular critter...

Don’t forget to dingle your toes in the water!

Life is busy. A homestead life is even busier.  You work hard and most of the time it's dirty work. Whether you are mucking the barn or helping baby goats there is plenty of poop to deal with! We have found that it is important to take a break now and then. We did...

A Season of Change

We're in a season of change here on the farm....so many things are happening it's hard to keep up! Our addition to the farmhouse is almost done...just a few little things left to do here and there...it's been a long road. We started this last October and hope to be...

Snow!!

2016 The Year of Adventure!

2015 – The Year of Change!

It's hard to believe that we are at the beginning of another new year!  If I had to give a theme to the year 2015 it would have to be the "year of change". So many things changed for me personally in 2015.  I went from a size 18/20 to a size 14! I can't tell you how...

He’s Dragging Me Kicking and Screaming….

I'm talking about my social media guru (aka my son Jeremy).  He's been working here at the farm lately and talking to me about the fact that I'm a social media dinosaur.  I told him I was on Facebook...is there more? Evidently quite a bit more!  So as he drags me...
