Makin' Hay

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Friday July 26, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

In farming, there are seldom any certainties, though a few things hold true—like baby animals in the springtime; frost in the fall; and a hot, dry, sunny stretch in early July that signals it’s time for making hay.  This is not a task just for fun or...


On Being Neighborly

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday February 05, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

On these blustery cold days and shivery cold nights, sometimes we can feel a bit cooped up in our homes, huddling by the wood stove with a dog or two close at hand for added warmth.  Chores begin by encasing oneself with copious amounts of wooly or...

A Fireside Christmas

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Saturday January 05, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

There is no other time of year that is quite like Christmas.  The family gathers from across the country to sit around the farm table, the stockings are hung with care, and children’s hearts are filled with the wonder of the season.  Saint...

First Snow

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Wednesday December 26, 2012   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Over the river and through the woods To Grandmother’s house we go The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh Through the bright and drifting snow-oh Over the river and through the woods Oh how the wind does blow ...

Spring Rains, Sunshine and Sunsets

Blog: Spyglass Gardens   -   Sunday March 27, 2011   -   By Steve or Wendy

Spring time wouldn't be normal if there wasn't rain. What is so wonderful that after the spring rain you witness streaks of sunshine radiating to the earth. Occasionally the skies open to an array of brightly colored clouds painted with Gods finger. And off in...

Smoke is leaving us.

Blog: MM Livestock Co   -   Monday November 22, 2010   -   By Megan

Those of you that have been here know my old mare Smoke. She's the one that always has an orphan following her or a kid on her back. She's the one the boys grab when its time to move cows or go to a jackpot. She's the mother of my rope horse, my ranch horse,...

There is always tomorrow

Did you ever have one of  those days when you just feel like you haven't accomplished a single worth while thing?  Well, today feels much like that. I started the morning off with a million plans only to have the day end with not much accomplished. A...

Blog: Spyglass Gardens   -   Thursday May 21, 2009   -   By Steve or Wendy
