invited to supper

Blog: Richert/Phillips Farms   -   Saturday January 24, 2015   -   By Michael

   Our friend of many years finely had us over for dinner--he is the one that cooks the sap for us and we split the syrup 50/50. Being a farmer like us a good idea like sharing a meal in the evening always seems to slip by as the years roll on until...

Sleeping Earth

Blog: Spyglass Gardens   -   Saturday January 03, 2015   -   By Steve or Wendy

As we celebrate the New Year, we look forward to its unfolding. Looking out at the fields all covered with snow we can hear the earth sleeping. Such a silence is peaceful and sweet. While others scurry about, the farmer simply admires the slumber of the good...

Winter work

Blog: Walkers Fresh Veggies   -   Monday December 29, 2014   -   By Mark & Carolyn

The day after Christmas I was able to finish up my fall plowing!  What a change from last year -- I have 21 of our 26 acres chisel plowed this year. I use a tool bar with five heavy spring shanks spaced around 16 inches apart,  with wide sweeps and...

Honoring the Team

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday November 11, 2014   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Lingering Doubts

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Friday October 17, 2014   -   By Brian

Henry Ford once said "if you believe you can or believe you cannot you are right".   If there is doubt, self-fulfilling proficiency is likely to occur.  If you believe you can you have a greater chance of success.  I have to keep...

Not a Sexy Topic?

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Saturday October 04, 2014   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Blog: Home Farm Herbery   -   Thursday September 04, 2014   -   By Arlene

This week’s email question asks, “Do you have any suggestions on making the perfect classic French omelette in an easy fashion?” Though I personally am not a breakfast egg eater and I am a poor cooker of eggs over easy, I do like and...


Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Wednesday August 27, 2014   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Let’s be honest, holes happen on farms.  I always get holes in my jeans from making hay—throwing bales, stacking, climbing, crawling.  There’s a sand-strewn hole just under the garage foundation where the thirteen-lined ground squirrels have taken...

Summer on the Farm

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Wednesday August 27, 2014   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara
