The livestock are hungry this morning—always hungry.  The chickens line up at the door, the sheep crowd the gate, the tilapia splash at the surface of their tanks, and the pigs squeal and grunt in complaint.  Obviously, we’re taking too long to...

Chickens Got Cabin Fever!

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Thursday February 28, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

This morning, the chicken watering vessels were torn apart and scattered across the floor, with extension cords barely attached.  The feeders were flipped over, feathers and dust lay everywhere, and on each little red face was a perfect expression...

Almost everyone takes a moment at this time of year to commit themselves to personal improvement in the coming 12-month.  Many of the more traditional commitments are well known—losing weight, exercising more, quitting smoking, or spending more time...

Thanksgiving is more than just dinner.

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Tuesday November 09, 2010   -   By Candace

I looked out at the garden tonight when I got home from work.  The hoop house over the peas was fluttering in the breeze, some straggler tomato plants had flopped over, brown and soggy, rattling raspberry canes... It certainly doesn't resemble the wildly...

Autumn has arrived!

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Sunday September 12, 2010   -   By Candace

Fall has come to Indiana in a rush this year.  After scorching in the hot sun for weeks, it is as if someone flipped a switch and the cooler evenings are here, the quality of sunlight has changed and the days are suddenly shorter.  As for me, I love...

  I got this photo years ago from someone…    The story goes that a teacher decided it would make a great lesson in arts and biology to have the kids paint their own little ceramic clown…    Then they each added some purchased...

Deer Season - don't forget to wear ORANGE!

Blog: Ramblings from Havenwood Farms   -   Friday November 20, 2009   -   By Shanan

Well, this morning is the start of Illinois'  early season shotgun hunting for deer.  I walked outside to feed the animals and heard quite a few distant gunshots.  The morning was cool and foggy, but the deer must have been moving.  ...

Starting all over again...

So, I barely survive our first attempt at raising and selling turkeys, getting them all to our customers (who were fabulous, by the way) and cooking a 35 pound turkey for Thanksgiving - not to mention Christmas looming over everything and this...

So, how many ways can you use turkey, anyway?

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Thursday November 20, 2008   -   By Candace

We partnered with a really great guy from here on LocalHarvest to take our turkey's and his to be processed together.  He already had an appointment and generously offered to let us share it with him.  This was his second year and our first.  He...

Have we met?

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Saturday November 15, 2008   -   By Candace

On a forum where I'm a member, I asked when was a good time to send turkeys to be processed.  The response I got was, "When you get tired of feeding them, and when they get mean."  I'm pretty sure this person wasn't giving the same...

What's that smell??

Blog: Great Expectations   -   Friday November 14, 2008   -   By Candace

I get up early. I always have.  To me, the morning is the best part of the day.  I don't understand why some people (like most of my family!) like to sleep the day away.  So, as with most mornings, I got up at 5 a.m. to let the dogs...
