We fancied up the old building on our property this week. We have always desired to use this as a Farm Stand and the dream might finally be coming true. It's unclear what this building was used for, we've heard it used to be an old gas station... There is a tag on the electrical box inside stating that the electricity was last turned off in 1954. Our house was built in 1937; it's cool to think that this building could have been a busy spot in this little town years ago with people coming and going for gas and morning coffee. We are excited to bring it back to life, filling it with vegetables, eggs, milk, meat, honey and cheese 🙂

Meet the “us” behind #modernpine! We got all spiffy for a wedding today and it’s probably our first picture all together since Easter. 🤦🏼‍♀️ So I’m not looking at the camera but this is the only pic where the boys are so 🤷🏼‍♀️. It’s hard to describe through social media how much I love and cherish my tribe...and would do anything for them! My oldest loved wearing suspenders like his farmer papa. 😍 • • • #blessed #family #countryfamily #mytribe #countrylife #countryliving #countrycouple #policewife #policewifelife #farmgirl #farm #farmsofinstagram #hobbyfarmer #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarmers #gardensofinstagram #mom #momlife #boymom #momofboys #crazychickenlady #countryboy #countryboys #runwildmychild #chickensofinstagram #instachicken #lovelife #godisgood

We are that family! (There are two babies but one is hiding under her mama) .. ... taking the little goat herd to their dads house for the weekend. Hubby and the girls have a youth trip this weekend and since my husband volunteers in the ministry the boys and I are tagging along as support crew. As for the goats—-Mama was low on milk and they are super tiny so we decided they needed extra supervision. We are super grateful to our friends for providing our original herd, a buck for rent, babysitting and mentoring us! Met them about 6 years ago on a park and recs team and our paths kept crossing. Then one day another friend asked if we’d give their goat a home. I checked the her paper work and discovered I knew her breeder and since then our herd and friendship has grown!! ... * * * #mentors #kidsitting #babysitting #goatherd #ministry #goatsinatruck #thatfamily #countryliving #daffodil #delphinium #dahlia #dairygoats #goats #nigeriansaanencross #friends #hobbyfarmers

Time for the fourth and final bunny introduction. This is Rupert, another baby Giant Angora. He is the biggest of the three babies and also the quietest, although he decided to be very active when I was trying to take his picture. 😃🐇💓

My parents are cool. I grew up in a home where #harvesting our own food was a #hobby and a #wayoflife. My parents would #can or #freeze a summer's worth of hard work to support a family of five a year (not including 3 kids' hungry friends)... As an adult, especially working in the food and beverage industry, I appreciate this #lifestyle, knowing where my food is from, and how it is produced... I love supporting #localfarmers ( #produce or #livestock), #hunting and #fishing (not just for sport, but for survival). I am so thankful to know the work that goes into #harvesting, whether it be a fresh cut flower bouquet, a cucumber, a fresh dozen eggs, a cage free chicken... the list goes on... Regardless, my dad posted his most recent #freshharvest... and it looks delicious. Trader Joe's and Whole foods has nothing on my parents.... #michigan #radish #spinach #bokchoi #fresheats #hobbyfarmers #farming #greeneats #healthyfood #supportlocal #food #gogreen #veggies

I have harvested my first Angora fiber!!! 3oz of unbelievably soft and clean cream colored fluff from Cayenne. I will be blending this with some of Tedi's mohair and spinning it as soon as my current WIP is off of the wheel. Cayenne was very well behaved during the shearing and it was so much easier than shearing a goat. 💓💓💓

Another bunny introduction...This is Martin, also a baby Giant Angora. He is the sweetest little thing, but really they all are...except Cayenne, she has more than a bit of attitude. 😃💗🐇

The theme for today in the #gettoknowahomesteader challenge is TRACTOR. When it comes to tractors I belong to team green so I just got to say that I’m feeling a bit conflicted posting this image 😂 but it’s my most recent tractor image from a couple days ago. Tractors are a huge part of our life because fixing them allows us to eat :). Mike talks about tractors almost every waking moment. Seriously not kidding. Sometimes he even talks about them in his sleep 🙈. In his spare time he watches tractor pulls lol. Several years ago my Uncle Don started calling him The Tractor Man and it stuck. Mike lives up to his nickname every day. So cheers to tractors 🍻. #tractors #atablefullinthewoods #moderndaysoldways #hobbyfarmers #photochallenge #tractortech #aglife #farmlife

Thea chilling in her cage while nibbling on a piece of hay. She is a 9wk old Giant Angora, so she will be ready for her first shearing in a few weeks! The bunnies have already been a lot of fun, but it has been so hot that they are comfier in their cage with a frozen water bottle to snuggle up against. More time for getting acquainted when it isn't quite so hot. 💓🐇

double.l.ranch

All the home build talk, and I haven’t ever introduced us! We are Neil and Shelley Loving. We met in 2010 and married in 2013. Between us, we have 3 grown boys; Sterling is 24, Cody is 23, and Stiles is 21. We have always been city folks. We were raised in the city and we raised our kiddos in the city. . . Neil had a massive heart attack in 2014. We sold one of our businesses, sold our home, sold most of our belongings, bought an RV and took off. We traveled the coast of Florida for 10 months. When we got back to the city, we hated all the concrete and congestion so....we bought a ranch! We bought 55 acres in North Texas. On our honeymoon, we both got a “Loving Life” tattoo so that’s where we got the name “The Double L Ranch”. . . . This IG page is to journal our journey from city to country. Neil is a contractor so he is the one building our home. He is there 10-12 hours a day making sure every detail is done perfectly. He’s amazing. He’s done such an incredible job. Our home is beautiful because of this man. We can’t wait for this new life. We have learned so much and have so much more to learn. Here’s to Love and peace and reconnecting with Mother Nature. Thanks for following along this crazy path we call life. Live life now. Tomorrow is never promised! . . . #ranchlife #cityfolksgoingcountry #lovinglife #newranch #homebuild #barndominium #hobbyfarmers #futurehomesteader #icandothis #welovelife #heismyperson #mylobster #followyourdreams #workhard #hardworkpaysoff #liveyourbestlife #livenow #gratefuleveryday #truelove #loveyourlife #findyourlove

I haven’t done a “farm” post in awhile! ...the Kids were so excited to welcome this little kid this morning! its been a rough goat season we’ve sadly lost 4 babies and this Guy right here has been a trooper, and took care of the mamas and had to deal with the little ones that did not make it! He has a sensitive side so i’m so proud of him for stepping up. He said “after this season I might just become a Veterinarian” ...side note a lot of Local goat farmers are losing kids to premature births its been an odd spring. tell me how’s your herd doing? #goat #goatsofinstagram #maybaby #animalhusbandry #hobbyfarmers #loveourherd #howsyourherd #proudmama #homeschoolkids

Cheers to the beautiful souls who grew up on farms and lived the lifestyle. && cheers to the motivated non-farm or city people who chased a dream, a lifestyle, a way of living closer to earth. Both types of farmers/hobby farmers that embraced the messy days. Prayed in the hay loft for cures to animal illnesses. Spent hours googling, learning, asking. Saw life at birth & life at death. And throughout the journey, despite the hard days, the days that overwhelmed them, never gave up. There's something to be said about those who tend to the animals 24/7 that produce our foods, milks, and wool/fiber for clothes. Coming from a city and moving to rural Wisconsin I cannot tell you how much I've learned about this farm thing. Through the wisdom I've gained and the things I've seen ... You farming folks are the people who work so so hard and get little praise from society. It's messy, it's expensive, the days are long & sometimes the shifts don't end. I hope the bigger society can better understand that ... You are the people our world needs most. ❤️🌿 . . . @katmannel

So after a brief pow wow in the bathroom (isn't this where all couples talk?!), we figured out which seeds were going where and then got after it! 🍉🍅🌽 Maybe we should start calling ourselves "primitive farmers"! I was literally tracing a Newks cup with a paint pen to show where to cut the holes at. We ordered some fancy hole punching seed spreading contraption after about two rows of this....My pregnant ass was dragging 🤰🏼Everyone worked hard except the littlest one, Phoebe just made a palette inside on the floor 🤦🏼‍♀️ * * * #NotEven25%Done #ComptonFarms #MoreRowsToGo #wannabeFarmers #HobbyFarmers #MrPsPatch @discgol4

Naked pig wrestling. A true story. We have officially been living on our land for three years now. This weekend while fencing, my daughter commented how proper our work is. And it’s true compared to how we fenced the first few times - pigs would get out heaps. Once I was naked sun baking on our veranda and the mumma pig got out, made her way 200 meters up to the house and got into the chicken feed. @ $20 a bag I ran down to save it and realized I was naked wrestling a pig. Lucky we live on a huge block of land and I wasn’t busted by the neighbors. Although I’ve grown up on hippy communities and off grid, having animals is a whole new trip for us. We brought the land 7 years ago now and started building and prepping this place to live on and we have loved every minute of it. It’s been a huge trip hard as fuck at times. biggest lesson is all the work is never done and to enjoy the small wins and stop to appreciate the sunsets always. Loving Instagram inspiration on homesteading, art, on body acceptance and friendships. . . #boorabeemountain #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #offgrid #offgridfarms #hobbyfarmers #3yrs #learning #farmlife #hardworkpaysoff #livingthedream #womanwhofarm #womenwhofarm #practicesmakesperfect #nakedsunbaking #smallwins #hippykid

Lesson learned...do not let Dewi help with shearing! He usually isn't around when I shear, but I was doing Timmy in the evening, so all of the animals were hanging out waiting for dinner. He started by just observing, but that soon led to him eating little bits of fiber that had fallen to the ground. Then he developed a taste for mohair and started stealing locks right off the shearing stand! It was hard keep an eye on him and the shears at the same time, so he finally got quite bold and grabbed a huge chunk of fleece off the shearing stand and ran. 😂 Thankfully he is a dear and it wasn't hard to catch up with him and take the fleece out of his mouth before he ate it. 🐐💓🐴

Phoebe and I have been dreaming about chicks and our garden. She wants watermelon and strawberries. I want potatoes and carrots. And We both want 🥚'S !! Been sketching and studying layouts on Pinterest and trying to figure out how to make it work. Open to suggestions/ideas in a 1 acre area...... (and don't want to drive my neighbors nuts too!!) 😉 #comptonfarms #wannabeFarmers #hobbyfarmers #simplelife #MyPoorHusband #backyardgarden @discgol4

Okay thoughts, people. Going to have a silly amount of 🐓 soon. Going to have to sell 🥚. Desperately want a cute stamp from Etsy but need a “farm name” for #hobbyfarmers and #hobbyhomesteaders when did you name your place? It seems silly since we are literally so tiny right now but...I already have a name 🤣

I always let the girls eat a little from the barrel because the boys are hay hogs and won't let them at the feeder. We want to get these 2 bred soon, but we don't want to permanently own a buck. We're heading to the sale barn this weekend, hoping we can find a good buck to "borrow" for a few weeks. We'll let him have his fun then take him back and sell him again.

Went to pick up our milk today and these gals were having a snack. I would love to have a Jersey milk cow one day. Not sure if we'd be able to use all that milk, but dang, wouldn't that be cool?
