Even the chickens don't like this 36° weather 💦🐔

Want to give a big shout out to all of our IG gal friends! Your posts inspire me to do more and be a better #farmher The riding mower is down again (it's a theme around here 😂) and before the rain moves in, it was my goal to get the yard done. Edward had 1 day off last week and he generously gave it up so we could go to Farm Science Review. He will have Sunday off but I didn't want him spending it pushing a mower. So I got the front done yesterday and most of the back is done. I need more gas to finish the side but I will finish it before he gets home tomorrow night! And thanks to @tobymac_music for the tunes to keep me cranking! #pushmowersavesusagain #yardwork

In my happy place —> my patio garden. I can’t wait until the day this gets to be my full time job, but until then I’m documenting the journey from patio to farm on @mustardseed_homestead #learningtohomestead #mustardseedhomestead #farmher

One of our chickens went on an adventure! This is Cheeka Key, the only chicken on our farm with a name because she is super sweet. Our hoomom had to crawl under some brush to save her! She spent the night outside because she went missing at dusk. Momma, Gunny and I searched for her for a loooooong time before deciding to try again in the morning. . . . . #chickensofinstagram #chickens #backyardflock #fresheggsarethebest #bullisflocksandcocks #backyardchickens #backyardcoop #farmher #oliveegger #cheekakey

We’re down to less than 500 acres to seed! Looking forward to checking one of the bigger fall projects off the list ... then we can move on to fencing, moving cows home and working on our house. #montanamoment #femalefarmerproject #farmher #eatwheat #wheat #plant19 #grow19 #bestofmontanaag #bigskycountry

The first run of 5 beeves is back from the processor and we cooked two boneless ribeyes last night to taste the quality of all the hard work - it was amazing! Tender, juicy, good flavor, and delicious fat. . I am so thankful for the animal this steak came from. I had a tearful moment of overhwelming gratitude last night as I ate, remembering their entire lives from when I watched them being born to the day I took them for harvest. The emotions that come with raising food are deep and intense - a connection that is muddled with sometimes conflicting shots of fulfillment, pride, humility, mourning, and reverence. I say reverence, because for me, raising animals is a fusion of the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. It takes all of me to raise a happy, healthy animal eventually harvested for food. To feel so many things and to be so profoundly engaged in work that revolves around life and death, is nothing short of spiritual for me. . #foodmatters #gratitude #grassfed #grassfedbeef #womeninag #agvocate #farmher #holistic #wellness #eatlocal #knowyourlocalrancher #knowyourlocalfarmer #buylocal #slowfood #slowliving #countryliving #ranchlife #homecooking #homemade #food #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #nutition #protein #theoriginalprotein #simple #simpleliving #hardwork #loveyourjob #goals

We're making a big decision on the farm...we're moving our Old Spots out. Don't get me wrong. We love them. Like, legit. Love them. They're my most favorite pigs of all time. But they're big and they're hard on the land. They don't root, never have, but they do tend to congregate in one area that has become a bit of a quagmire. We either have to pour a concrete pad for them to get through winter without losing our minds or we need to take a break from pigs. We're really trying to focus on our pastures so we can become more sustainable and at this point they're mucking up a lot of things. So...if you're interested in pork please let me know. It's $6.50 a pound for quarter, half or whole hog. That includes on-farm slaughter and our butcher fees. Your price is $6.50 out the door. And, if you're looking for an Old Spot Boar I may have your guy. I bought him this Spring as a four month old from Luther, the President of the Old Spot Association, he's amazing stock and not so big he can't be moved. That's him with the ear tag. #gos #pasturedpork #oldspots #bigdecisions #farming #farmlife #pigs #farmher

Self Portrait: 120 Birds Later . I was on kill today. I'll admit it's not my favorite job (but I don't think it's probably anyone's, right?), but I'm proud I'm an equal partner in this farm and able to do all the jobs. And I'm very grateful to have the privilege of knowing where my food comes from, and the ability to share thoughtful food with others. . . #selfie #selfportrait #farmer #farmher #farmlife #pasturedpoultry #slowfood #processingday #knowyourfarmer @sylvanaquafarms

#gettoknowahomesteader Photo Challenge September Week 3... Homestead Heritage. When I first started this journey, I had the vague knowledge that there were farmers in my family tree. We would stop at the holidays and visit the distant cousins on my mom’s side, still running the family farm in Central Texas, but I had no idea what crops they were growing. There were a couple trips to collect souvenirs from the old farm on dad’s side up in Michigan. I knew the women on my mom’s side did needlework and had first learned to knit from them. It didn’t stick. Then, after a first failed attempt at music school, I went back to college for photography. My dad had found old family photos by then that showed the farmers as more than that. There were gems like this first photo, a study in light on the barn. Someone loved landscape photography! After I picked knitting back up during photography school for the stress, I also found out my mom’s side farmed cotton! So, I like to think my homestead’s heritage is beautifully rooted in farmers as artists and will hopefully continue with another generation... . . @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @naptown.funny.farm #womenwhofarm #womenfarmers #farmher #farmernotthefarmerswife #homesteading #fiberfarm #fiberfarmer #farmerasartist #farmingartist

TGIF! I have LOTS of new friends around here (almost 900, y’all!), so here’s a little intro! • • I’m Mackenzie, the farming artist behind your favorite stickers 😉 I live with my husband and 4 kiddos on a 74 acre farm about an hour south of Charlottesville VA. He raises cattle, sheep & YAKS 😲 (yep, we’ve got 27!), and I paint to keep sane while I try to figure out how I managed to fall into this crazy life! 🤣 I’ve been #artsy for years, but painting in this capacity for only a year 😲 We’re renovating a ~150 year old #farmhouse sooooo we’ve been living in our RV since last July 30th (but who’s keeping track? 🤣). I needed something to keep me sane, so I picked up a paintbrush, and if you’re here you know the rest! Our house is ALMOST done! We were supposed to move in this weekend, but that was before I got accepted to participate in my BIGGEST opportunity YET - the annual art show in Occoquan VA next weekend! So planning for that in addition to a few hiccups in our timeline along the way have extended that date into next month. But hey, it’s SO close, and I have enough to keep me busy until moving day, so I am DONE complaining (I did that a LOT 🤣) • • In my spare time, I enjoy walks on the beach, picking wildflowers, and ... who am I kidding? Did you just read my autobiography? I hide from my kids to eat the good snacks and enjoy a glass (or 2.. maybe a bottle?🤣) of wine to keep sane ☺️ I AM, however, pondering an audiobook subscription because I WOULD like to read, but time is never on my side 🤷🏼‍♀️ • • So there you have it folks. Do we have anything in common? Ha! If we do, please show yourself! I need to know I’m not alone in this crazy life 🤣😘 • • • • • #artist_community #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #artist #artgram #acrylicartist #etsy #etsysellersofinstagram #stickers #stickerart #stickermule #stickerartist #stickeraddict #charlottesville #charlottesvilleva #cville #momboss #mompreneur #bossbabe #bosslady #farmher #farmerslife #farmerswife #farmersmarket #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #farmliving

Are the mice/voles mocking us? Or truly showing gratitude for all the potatoes they’ve been able to nibble on? 🤷🏽‍♀️ What a beautiful sunny, breezy day to have my hands in the dirt. The last few nights I’ve been vividly (and semi-consciously) dreaming... and waking up very disoriented as a result. Although my body feels tired today, it felt good to be outside and in touch with the ground. 🍂 Whatever you do... do it with love. 💚 . . #wildsacredjourney #awakenyourwild #walkyoursacred #eatlocal #buylocal #lovepotatoes #farmher #nomad #lovewhatyoudo #getoutside #loveisthemedicine #energymedicine #lessonsfromnature #allofcreation

☀ End of summer harvest ☀ Man, that felt good to say! Wanted to show y'all some more luffa progress. These are my best sponges yet, and came from gourds harvested about the same color as these two. I'll let them dry in the house at least a few weeks before peeling. You have to manhandle them a bit, rolling on a hard surface to loosen the skin of the gourd. Then I'll let it dry further on a rack until it looks like this. I have no desire to bleach them white as I've had suggested to me quite a bit - isn't it the whole point to have a natural sponge? . . . #growyourown #harvest #gardener #luffa #selfsufficiency #virginiagrown #farmher #organicgardening #veggies #sustainablefarming #nature #dirtykneesfarm

“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20 Some days, our dream of having our own farm and being real homesteaders seems impossible, but we have faith that it will happen (even if it’s only the size of a mustard seed some days). This account is here to document our journey from Patio Homesteading in our Condo to the Farm we are saving up for. #mustardseedhomestead #learningtohomestead #thoseareactuallyturnipseeds #farmher

The New Rice: Minus The Carbs and Grain-Free The new rice that's in town. 🍚 For those of you that don't eat grains🌾 there are a couple of rice options that you can use at home. One of them is called Miracle Rice. It is made from the Japanese yam called konjac. It acts like rice. It's in a saltwater solution that you have to drain out. You can even fry it. Another option for a rice substitute is cauliflower. You can either buy it already riced, Just meaning that it's been chopped small enough, like the size of a grain of rice. Or You can do it yourself with a food processor. But if you do it yourself, just use the pulse setting to manually control it Otherwise, you could actually turn it into more like cauliflower mashed potatoes, if you get it too smooth. You don't want it super smooth. You just want it chopped into rice- sized pieces. Both ways…bought already chopped, or manually chopped, work equally well. And you can mix this Miracle Rice with the cauliflower rice if you want. When we do stir-fry for Oriental food here at home, that's what I use. I use the cauliflower rice as the rice base underneath the stir-fry vegetables. So there are some new rice options in town. I suggest checking them out, and see what you think for yourself. I personally don't really miss the regular rice. Between these two options, I can pretty much make any recipe work these days while sticking to my low-carb diet. Remember … Be The Organic U - Feed Your Soul

Please welcome today’s Woman in Ag - @thesuburbancountrywife Pt1⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Hi. My name is LeeAnn and I'm an X-ray Tech, Fire Wife and Mom of 4 trying to live the "Simple Life" and make the most out of my backyard in the middle of the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio.⠀ .⠀ I was raised in the suburbs with no background in farming or gardening. We ate store bought canned veggies, frozen meals and ate bland cooking. ( No offense to my mom. I loved her cooking anyways, but she never added any spices.🤣) ⠀ I always loved the country life and wanted to learn how to cook with "real" food and be able to pass that down to my children. So, rather than moving too far away from our families, my husband and I decided to bring the country life to our little suburban home.

ANIMAL INTUITION: Notice how they react to the food you give them. 🌽 Do they love it or just tolerate it? 🥕 Giving your pet the best diet will prolong their life, prevent diseases, and help them fight illnesses when needed. After my dog suffered a liver injury last summer, I switched to a raw fermented diet even though my vet was against it but I followed my gut and my dog is thriving on @answerspetfood

Please welcome today’s Woman in Ag - @thesuburbancountrywife Pt2⠀ .⠀ .⠀ We started with chickens ( doesn't everybody 🤣) , then we built a hoop house to start to grow our own food. Then we added some ducks. And just recently we are starting to prep a 15,000 sq. foot space for an outside garden. We can't get too much bigger as we do have to cofine to the city limits on how many animals we have and outbuildings we have.

Please welcome today’s Woman in Ag - @thesuburbancountrywife Pt 3⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I want to show people that you don't have to have lots of land to grow and raise food for your family. And, that you can also make some profit from your own backyard. So, join me as I learn how to farm and garden.

My supervisors, giving me advice on building the door for their run. Bossy buggers 😂😂 And as I type this, I'm listening to the grandson cry because he is in time out with a spanking for throwing yet another temper tantrum. Homesteading and homeschooling isn't all fun and games, and sunshine and roses. This week has been dang hard emotionally and mentally for me with the grand.

I finally broke down & ordered an egg basket (thanks amazon prime 😉). It was much needed since over the past couple weeks my hens egg production has exploded. I realized after a couple broken eggs that packing them in your shirt isn’t the best idea. Is it just me or does everyone think farm eggs are beautiful? 🥚 💓

FunGuy will have shiitake and oyster mushrooms Saturday at the @yellowspringsfarmersmarket from 7am-noon! 🍄🍄👩‍🍳👨‍🍳 Farm News: We have been busy with the last batch of chickens for the season. I am happy to say they are finally outside. 😎☀️ Although, we are pushing the limits of pasture-raising chickens with this unpredictable weather. 🤔❄️☀️⛈️🤷‍♀️ But, that's Ohio.... Violet and I (Rachael) moved all of them out yesterday, before it got REALLY hot. It was a warm 90 degrees in the barn during the move. 👎😅 This morning Violet and I hooked up our new "off the grid" chicken watering system. Now, we no longer have to haul 5 gallon buckets full of water. 🤩🙌👏👏😌 The pigs are roaming around in their new patch of pasture/woods. 🌲🐷🐽 I'm excited to announce that lamb will be available next week. 😋 (Parenting boast: Violet is totally a farm model. 😍) Come and check out our last farm tour of the season this Saturday from 2pm-4pm and see all this yourself. Tennis shoes or boots are recommended. This is a FREE educational event to learn about where your food comes from and why/how we do what we do.

Who is super excited for our next BIG #gettoknowahomesteader photo challenge in October?? Be looking for more info next week on that. 🙋 As you know we've welcomed a few co-hosts for next month and we're so excited to introduce them to you. 👩👩👩👩 We will be slowly sneaking you the details about our October challenge as it gets closer. In the mean time, our #followfrday today is @naptown.funny.farm She is definetly #onetofollow. ➡ Jen is an amazing lady and we asked her to share a little something about herself. Here is what she had to say... 📣 Hey! Im Jen and im the curator and creator of Naptown Funny Farm. Along with my husband, we are from the east side of Indianapolis, Indiana and have started our homesteading journey with our first flock of chickens and a small garden. Our long term plan is to buy a house in the country and add a donkey and probably an emu. 😉 We currently also share our home with 6 cats, 2 dogs and a Bearded Dragon. Its no surprise as I work full time as a practice manager and veterinary nurse at a local privately owned veterinary hospital! Our goal is to become as sufficient as possible with the idea of a healthier lifestyle and diet via working our own land. The true American dream! ❤️ Go check her out and show her some love, we're so excited to have her along for this wild ride. 😉 If you haven't posted a picture to go along with this week's theme, homestead heritage, you still have time! We love seeing how everyone chooses to play along. And make sure to keep your eyes peeled for next week's co-host reveal, some amazing co-hosts. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

These old barn beams.😍 But, no way are we going to use them in our new house even though that was the plan. After doing a little research, we decided the risk of an infestation of powder post beetles wasn’t worth it since we didn’t have a way to get these heat treated and chemicals are not an option we will choose. # Plan 2 is for them to become an outdoor structure and picnic table down by the fire pit. # Life can be like that. We think we have it all figured out and then a big obstacle happens. # God is never surprised and He will make a way for us. Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. # Will our house be “beamless”?

I just spent the last 3 hours "working" in the gardens. Its warm but a nice breeze. The leaves 🍁falling and the bees still buzzing🐝 Pumpkins🍊 and a few stray tomatoes🍅 Watermelon🍉 and apples🍎 Beans for shelling and roses still blooming. That time of transition. Today is still summer yet tomorrow is fall. The meat birds 🐔played at my feet and I gathered bunches of patchouli, parsley🌿, lavendar, lemon🍋 balm, eucalyptus and lemon verbeena. I only pinched a little rosemary as its hardy and I'll let it keep growing strong and its so tasty fresh! We have more peppers🌶 than I know what to do with. Carolina Reapers galore. Pablano, sugar peach, banana, wax, bishops hat, jalapeños. Must preserve. Saved more coriander and marigold🌻, and collected eggs. Friends, you need anything? Some meat?🍗 Eggs🍳? We've got food. Do you need clothes👕? We've got plenty. I dont have much 💲 but I'll share. I wake every morning giving thanks☝ and every day I'm shown I'm worthy of his grace❤ Happy Friday to you.

“As much as you transform the land by farming, farming transforms you. It seeps into your skin along with the dirt that abides permanently in the creases of your thickened hands, the beds of your nails. It asks so much of your body that if you’re not careful it can wreck you as surely as any vice by the time you’re fifty, when you wake up and find yourself with ruined knees and dysfunctional shoulders, deaf from the constant clank and rattle of machinery, and broke to boot.” The Dirty Life, Kristin Kimball

You guys! First, apologies for being MIA. Again. Second, I won a giveaway that my lovely friend @daenelt was hosting a couple of weeks ago on her blog, @livingoutsidethestacks. The winner received a canvas from @canvasonthecheap. I knew immediately that I would have ‘Joe Pye Weed’ printed on the canvas if I won. And guess what?!?! It is beautiful. I love it. I love it so much that I’ve already ordered another canvas and have plans to order more. There’s nothing like seeing your own pics in print. That is all. Happy FriYAY! . . . . . . . . . #simpleliving #homestead #homesteader #homesteadlife #nikon #nikond3100 #nikonphotography #catskills #catskillmountains #upperdelaware #upperdelawareriver #ourgrassisgreen #oursimplelife #countrylife #rurallife #farmher #chickenlibrarian #happyhomesteading #chickensanddirt #chickenlife #canvasonthecheap #joepyeweed #giveawaywinner

Okay so I’m super ready for fall, but NOT ready for my seasons changing sinus infection. 🙄 Between side effects from my flu shot and throbbing sinuses, I’m laying up today and treating this bad boy before it gets worse. Lots of fluids, lots of tea, lots of healthy foods to kick it to the curb. I’ve definitely found that one day of rest at the beginning stops it in its tracks, instead of knocking me down and needing medication. So here’s to lots of tea and puppy snuggles, and being able to trade work days for tomorrow. 😂🤧 . . . . . . . . #teammorethanyouseek #teamfueledbeyondfitness #furmommy #beaglemom #labmom #huntingdogs #farmher #outdoorswoman #outdoorgirl #outdoorsy #exploreoften #findyourhappy #sheadventures #girlgetoutside #herwanderfullife #furchildren #drivenbypassion #whatdrivesyou #effyourbodystandards #embracethesquish #healthateverysize #donutsanddeadlifts #coffeejunkie #caffeinequeen #homegrownfood #homesteading #smallfarm

An anti-agriculture movie is being played at The Ellen Theatre in Bozeman this weekend. I agree that it's incredibly frustrating when people try to take down our livelihood, but I don't believe that anger, aggression, and name-calling is the best solution. . So instead, I am going to tell you a little about my family and why we are the rule in agriculture and not the exception. . Even today, there are four generations that are active on our ranch in Montana. My Grandmother, Father, Brother, and his young kids are all involved. The kids love going out and helping dad whenever they can. . It's important to us as a family that we are raising products that fit the demand of the consumer. The consumer has spoken and told us they love eating animal protein, including beef, and they want to know more about where their food comes from. . Instead of just getting angry and talking negatively about people who don't agree with us, we want to share our story. . We know that every type of meal choice is fine. It doesn't matter if you eat meat or you claim to be vegan, the beautiful thing about living in America is you get to choose. . But one thing we like to talk about in agriculture is voting with your checkbook. . So if you are supportive of animal agriculture, I strongly encourage you to do this: . 1. Today, use your checkbook and vote by purchasing an animal protein for dinner. . For some of you, this might be going out for a steak dinner tonight or maybe feeding your kids chicken strips. As you enjoy your dinner, I'd love for you to share a picture in the comments so that we can see the direct correlation that we have with agriculture on a daily basis. . Our 4th generation family cares about every single product that we are producing for you. We are there when it's -10 or 100 degrees, or when we're tired and don't feel like working. . The cattle get fed first, they have a nutritionist, and are well cared for. Rancher and farmers care about your food because it's the same food that is feeding their family and our friends.

It’s official! I have a new farm and a new home. In the same location! ⠀⠀ THANK YOU UNIVERSE! ⠀⠀ Seriously. This took some major manifestation power. I can’t tell you how many opportunities I’ve turned down in search of the full yes, and THIS is IT! ⠀⠀ It’s a gorgeous spot in Winters with amazing energy and good vibes from the landowner. On his 23 acre property, he grows citrus and palm trees for his tropical plant nursery business. He’s renting the casita out to me, which is a little studio separate from his main house. There’s even a greenhouse about 10 feet from the casita! There’s so much potential here and I feel the excitement in my bones. ⠀⠀ Prepping to move in a couple weeks and will be starting a cover crop right away. Here’s to new beginnings! ✨ ⠀⠀ #flowermama #farmerflorist #moving #transitions #newfarm #notill #moving #upgrade #farmher #womenwhofarm #mompreneur

This is my view from the back porch. We’re just getting started with our little homestead, but eventually the garden area will be full to bursting (I hope). We’ve only lived here since the end of May, but we’ve already grown so much (mostly because I’ve been planning this life for so long it’s hard for me to put on the brakes)! Chickens, goats & gardens - oh my! It’s a lot of work, but it’s the best kind of work. And yes, doing it with littles in tow makes it more difficult for sure, but I have a vision for our lives, and for them, that cannot keep getting put off. “No such thing as the right time, situation or place. You have all it takes. Just dig within. Exhume all the greatness inside of you and transform the world with an inexhaustible drive and without fear of limitations.” ~ Chinonye J.

Learning where you food comes from and how it was cared for as it grew is one of the main reasons I started my homestead. It is also one of the reasons Annemarie started her farm. . Making sure animals have the best life possible is the only way I cope with my homestead. The relationship between you and the animals is a special thing, because you’re no longer eating things from a grocery store. You’re eating things you’ve spent time caring for each and every day. . Sure, it is tough. But it is better than any other alternatives where quality of life and food are concerned. . . . @sullifarmandkitchen #sullifarmandkitchen #thetannehillhomestead #cornishcross #canont6i

So.. I really really want to create a separate page, strictly Ag/everyday type stuff that I do, and share it with y’all. Because really... you can’t make this stuff up. And here’s a little proof. Any help with a catchy phrase, handle name, whatever they call it nowadays, would be greatly appreciated. Creativity is not my strong suit (unless it’s midnight before your daughters first birthday party and her outfit got shipped to NC instead of VA). Ready..... GO! Please... 😂😂 #ag365 #womeninagriculture #womeninag #farmHer #farmherfriday #womenwhofarm #farm365 #redangus #boergoats #chickenfarmer

Penny, the buff Orpington I got recently, is NOT happy I separated her from her teenagers. She'll get over it 😂 Once the passing shower goes by, I'll get the teenagers in a cage and outside for some grass and fresh air. They haven't been outside since I got them. We will keep them in a cage where they can still be seen, but Penny needs to stop being bloody and over protective of them. #chickens #homestead #flockrebuilding #farmher #fivetopsfarm

My top 5 ways to stay on track during show season: ⁣ ⁣ 1️⃣ Drink a lot of water. I know there are much more tastey options 🍻 but try to get in all your water and then some. Not only will this help you stay on track, it will keep you from feeling sick, hungover, and from snacking on all the things. ⁣ 2️⃣ Meal prep! Whether that meals bringing food along or mentally preparing yourself for what you will eat before you get there... have a plan! I encourage you to pick the one “fair food” you must indulge in (for me it’s milkshakes 🍦). Enjoy it and avoid the rest. ⁣ 3️⃣ Walk. Don’t take the elevators. Nothing to do? Pace up and down your alisle. Add some lunges, calf raises, squats. You’ll be surprised how much a little extra movement will do you good. ⁣ 4️⃣ Keep up with as much quality sleep as possible. Your body can’t function at 100% on shitty sleep. Don’t expect it too. ⁣ 5️⃣ Give yourself some grace!!! Any weight you gain, any progress you loose can be gained back just as quickly as you lost it. You weren’t put on this earth to worry about gaining 10 pounds. Live your life. This health and fitness journey is to amplify those awesome times, not take away from them. When you get back to normal, DO NOT TRY TO OVERCOMPENSATE YOUR WORKOUTS. No 2-a-days. Just pick up where you left off. You can double up your veggies and water. But don’t put your already recovering body in more stress! You are gonna be just fine girl. ⁣ ⁣ I promise.
