It's amazing 👏 what has survived the pests that have plagued the garden off and on this season.
🐖 Filling freezers!
Just got back from the processor with close to 200lbs of Homegrown pork. Not to mention over 50lbs of it we had made into chorizo.... 😋
Happy Anniversary! 😊
Home grown 🌿
Nutrition is super important for hens as it is for us. In order to support the girls laying, it's important to feed the hens a quality mix. Supplemented by grit on demand, garden scraps and free range foraging is what we've done for our flock over the years.
Buying eggs that you know the hen was not fed toxic pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics should matter. We've found that non gmo soy free has been the nutritious and wholesome. Super happy to know that our girls are getting the best quality feed while ensuring that the eggs they produce are filled with all the good stuff.
We love that they supply us with such a rainbow of eggs, but we still don't know who gives us which color😅 it's always a guessing game
This is one of our newer girls that was gifted to us, we think she's a lavender Orpington💜
This Saturday, we'll be processing 11 rabbits. If anyone is interested in learning or just come to fellowship during this experience you're more than welcome!
Message us for more details yall!
😍 New chickens = new colors of eggs
Our flock was decimated by a fox this year. But God came through! 🙏 We've found multiple people who were giving chickens away which diversified our flock. Now we get so many different colors of eggs!
Enjoying the harvest God is continuing to provide for us and others!
Had anyone else notice the fall weather outside today? Praying the garden doesn't go into shock from it.
📖 First week of homeschooling has affirmed our choice.
😊 Thank you to all the families encouraging us and helping us navigate the homeschooling life!
We are moving our processing day to next Saturday (20th). If you'd like to come by, let us know!

Happy Tuesday. Big moves on the homestead! We'll be weaning bagel from the bottle this week!! Big boy is almost 4 months old💙 His pasture in the backyard will be set up over the next month and half. Can't believe we've had him since he was only a week old baby!
