Independence on the Homestead

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday July 09, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

This week, as we mark the anniversary of signing our nation’s Declaration of Independence from Great Britain (though I believe King George didn’t get to read it until three weeks later due to the 18 th Century lack of email and texting), I am reminded of...

Homestead Reflections at Huckleberry Tent and Brea...

Blog: Huckleberry Homestead & Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast Lodging near Sandpoint Idaho   -   Sunday May 26, 2013   -   By Timothy & Christine

  One thing I love about Homesteading is that nothing stays the same — growing/decomposing, summer/winter, storing/consuming. You come to value the moment — savor the possibilities of this day. Even though the returning seasons may rhyme,...

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday January 25, 2013   -   By Katie

We do a lot of baking at our house. Because we don’t eat artificial food dye and are trying to avoid artificial everything-else, I recently purged all of the unnatural additives from my baking cupboard. I pitched things like neon food dye, regular food...

Wish List Wednesday | Magazines Welcome to another Wish List Wednesday ! When I first started sharing these posts I intended to do them every Wednesday. Then I realized it was a little obnoxious. So now I’m working on making this happen the...

Eat Healthy. Save Money. {Homemade Crackers}

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Tuesday November 13, 2012   -   By Katie

One of the major reasons why we started Arcadia Farms was to learn to eat healthy, live sustainably and to be producers instead of consumers only. In October I announced that I would start focusing part of my attention on “homesteading” topics , ...

Bread and Broth

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Thursday October 18, 2012   -   By Katie

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I’m hoping to turn my efforts towards some of the non-gardening goals of Arcadia Farms. A major reason why we started this farming thing in the first place was to learn to eat healthy, live sustainably and to be...

Ruling The Roost

Blog: Winged Elm Farm   -   Monday October 08, 2012   -   By Brian

The time of morning, just before sunrise, where the light is revealing the landscape, the animals are stirring but not up, the distant meow of our cat Mickey as he strolls up the hundred or so yards from his den to our front porch is my favorite time of the...

Full Moon

Blog: Winged Elm Farm   -   Saturday October 06, 2012   -   By Brian

I was standing in the oldest orchard. The light was provided by the full moon. High and staggered clouds were moving across the sky providing a stop and go slide show with the moonlight. And, I was reminded again that one of the principle joys of living in the...

Pasture Maintenance

Blog: Texas Herb Company& Crafty Threads   -   Thursday May 17, 2012   -   By Petra

A beautiful morning to really enjoy pasture clean up. I am amazed how well the camelid manure turns this dry and stoney land into great fertile soil. The ranch is full of beautiful wild flowers and I am sure it is because of the great rain that we had the...

  What a wonderful Wednesday it is. We where blessed with more rain yesterday and today the earth and all the inhabitants here are overjoyed with the beautiful warm sunshiny day today. The peacock that found his way to our ranch a few days ago...

Duck Attack

Blog: Smaht Fahm   -   Saturday March 26, 2011   -   By Erin

My heart is heavy this morning--a fox visited last night and took 5 of my remaining 8 ducks.  He took four newly egg laying females, which adds insult to injury.  It's our fault, however, because we forgot to go and put the ducks in their pen last...
