Guys...I hope I’m wrong...but I think Fall might have just skipped us here in Montana!๐Ÿ‚ I keep holding out for  some late, gorgeous weather! But it’s snowing again... โ˜ƒ๏ธ Sophia, Bianca and I will just have to settle in! ๐Ÿ™ˆ Before I had farm animals, winter meant hot baths, cozy sweaters and good books! โ„๏ธ Now, it means making sure everyone is warm and has water in negative temperatures! ๐Ÿ˜‘ Not so fun. Besides Christmas, which I do LOVE ๐Ÿฅฐ, what else is there to look forward to about winter?? I’m trying desperately to focus on some positives! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Happy Monday! Let us take a minute to tell you about our milkshake cups. Did you know they are made from a corn-based plastic and are 100% biodegradable and so much better for the planet! โ € . โ € . โ € . โ € . โ € . โ € #robertishere #floridacity #homestead #florida #southdade #southflorida #tropical #tropicalfruit #foundinmiami #moretoexplore #fruitstand #farm #milkshakes #familyownedandoperated
“And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? “  Exodus 4:10-11  This was Moses’s greatest fear. He stuttered and stammered, the words didint seem to come out right and never would he have thought that God would use him as a public speaker. One who would be a leader of thousands. God had plans to use Moses in mighty ways to deliver his people, the Israelites from Egypt. How often do we look at the task at hand or something God desires us to do and believe we can’t do it? We may feel we dont have the wisdom, the understanding, the strength, the boldness, the patience. We may not think we have the qualifications, and we don’t... At least not on our own. What we do have is God and that more than surpasses all that we may think we need. “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.” Exodus 4:12  The one who created our voice  can give us the words to speak. The one who created our bodies can give us the strength. The Creator of the universe can give us the creativity The omniscient one can give us wisdom.  Where we lack, He is abundant. In our weakness, He strong. When we are discouraged, He gives us hope.  Let’s place our faith in God, that He will be the lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path ๐Ÿ•ฏ. God is enough, and He is all we will ever need.
Working on getting into the holiday spirit! #pacnw #firstsnow #diy #holidays #xmas #cabinlife #cabininthewoods #homestead #pnw
Beige comforting food at its finest. Porcini risotto with a dash of nutmeg for winter warmth and excellent Parmesan I brought back from Italy. Risotto is one of the first things I ever learnt to cook. I was obsessed with it as a kid. I love the rhythm of it, the set of rules and the constant stirring. It’s a meditative dish to make. Already looking forward to my Arancini tomorrow. There’s such a market these days for quick meals and fast food. But really it’s slow food that we so desperately need. Slow food and proper cooking tells farmers that we value the food they’re creating. So in turn they grow with pride, striving for quality and sustainability. Fast and cheap food signals to farmers that we don’t care... so they only strive for high yields. Which results in fertilisers, treating animals like machines, soil death, pesticides and extinction. Somber note to end - but the thought came to me and didn’t want to shy away from it.
From @newysvegiepatch -  A bitterly cold and damp afternoon in the veg garden spent daydreaming of a hot bath and creamy broccoli soup by the fire once the sun goes down tonight. • • • ๐Ÿ“ท @newysvegiepatch .  #gardenactivist #broccoli #growyourown #gardenlife #growfood #farmfood #urbanfarming #homestead #farmgirl #homesteading #veggiegarden #paddocktoplate #sustainableliving #sustainableliving #organicgardening
Happy Monday, friends! ๐Ÿฅฐ โญ๏ธOur #homesteaderhaven theme for this week is “INTRODUCTIONS”โค๏ธ I would love to know more about YOUR story, your farm & family. We will feature 4 of you next week!!! . ๐Ÿ’ƒ To get this party started... โญ๏ธMy name is Kipper ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป I’m a recovering big city girl ๐Ÿ‘  , now a thriving mountain farm woman. My heels and handbags are long gone. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ . ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป‍๐ŸŒพ These days, I’m in a t-shirt and #muckboots . If it ain’t comfy and can’t get dirty, there’s no good sense in wearing it around here. I would be totally fine never leaving the farm. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ I loathe shopping, unless I can do it at home online in my PJ’s. . โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐ŸŒพMy hubby and I have a small farm in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains called #gracehavenfarm, named after one of our rescue dogs, Gracie. ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿด๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ We have a 5 cows, 2 horses, 12 hens, 2 stands of honey bees, and 5 guineas. They all have big personalities and stories of their own. โค๏ธ .... ๐ŸคฉThen, there’s “the groupies” (our 3 dogs + 3 cats) that despite acres to roam, are constantly at our side. ๐Ÿ’œ . ๐ŸŒฟOur farm is chemical and pesticide free, and we believe in using sustainable, healing methods of farming and gardening. ๐ŸŒพ . ๐ŸฅฐWe are both winning personal battles with chronic illness through healing foods (Paleo works best for us) and Functional Medicine. ๐ŸŒณ โœ๏ธ Most importantly, none of this is possible without God. He has blessed us in ways we could never have imagined, and we are forever His. โ˜๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’œThank you so much for following us on our journey! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป It’s your turn! โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปPlease follow and tag your hosts in your posts: @themustardseedfarmco @one.grace.filled.life @sassy_feathers_farm @virginia.farm.living  and invite a farm friend or 2 to introduce themselves! . #ruralliving  #happyfarmily  #โค๏ธmyfarm  #homesteadeverafter  #smallfarmcharm  #countrysideandfarmlife  #theyarejustwee
Local pears poached in red wine infused with warming aromatics. Bay, star anise, clove, all spice and citrus. The wine then reduced into a fragrant syrup to go with some creamy Gorgonzola and toasted walnuts. A favourite dish of mine and so apt at this time of year. Can be made well in advance. Recipe will be on my story highlights.
Here's @thegeogarden picking up some gorgeous carrots. Yum! ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ• . . . ๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธGarden Poem of the Day๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ . "Genius Horti" By Nathan Marvel . 'Tis she that to these gardens gave That wondrous beauty which they have; She straightness on the woods bestows; To her the meadow sweetness owes; Nothing could make the river be So crystal pure, but only she, She yet more pure, sweet straight, and fair Than gardens, woods, meads, rivers are. Therefore what first she on them spent, They gratefully again present; The meadow carpets where to tread, The garden flowers to crown her head, And for a glass the limpid brook, Where she may all her beauties look; But since she would not have them seen, The woods about her draws a screen. . ____________________________________________________________ .

For us, the only thing that’s better than checking out an alternative home like the Darfield Earthship is getting the tour from a structural engineer who knows how they should be designed and built to make sure they work where you live.  We learned so much from Mark @metaphystations and hope you enjoy what he has to share in our latest video! ๐Ÿ“ฌlink in bio ๐Ÿ™ thank you for watching!  #exploringalternatives #darfield #earthship #metaphystations #explorebc #canada #explorecanada #greenbuilding #engineering #sustainable #underground #livingunderground #passivesolar #homestead
Everyone outta da bus! ๐ŸšŒ ๐ŸŽฅ @muddyacresflowerfarm • • • • • We had a very very slight dusting of snow. Finally at 4 o’clock today I went outside to coax them out of the coop. My crew believes snow is similar to hot lava. . . . #backyardpoultry #backyardflock #chickencoop #winteronthefarm #farmlife #countrylife #countrylivingmag #muddyacresflowerfarm #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #poultry #backyardpoultry #chickensofinstagram #farmlifebestlife #farmlife #homestead #rurallife #rural_love #countryliving

I’ve been reluctant to cut a door in the back wall of the cabin, but after two years with no settling, I’m confident that the cabin can handle it structurally.  Click on the link in my bio to watch the full video

My first green egg! Yes, it does look more blue but I can assure you that it is light green! So I guess you could call it a sea foam green โ˜บ๏ธ . In 4 days, 3 more of my hens started laying, so that makes 4 out of 11 hens producing eggs now! I had a feeling that they would start soon though because of all of the signs they were showing; red combs, rooster jumping on them, becoming more vocal and checking out the nesting boxes... It’s so exciting when you go out to the coop and find unexpected treasures to collect! The hens are going on 35 weeks though.... so it was about time ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜† Won’t be long and I’ll have more eggs than I know what to do with! . How many eggs are you collecting a day? . . . #chickens #happychickens #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #backyardpoultry #chickenlife #chickensofinstagram #hensofinstagram #mypetchicken #happyhens #ilovemychickens #chickensofig #lifeinthecountry #countrylife #modernhomesteading #homestead #homesteading  #farmher #modernfarmer #farmphotography #iamamodernfarmer #lifeonthefarm #offgridlife #offgrid #offgridliving #wildernessliving #wilderness #simplejoys #simpleliving #simplelife
I am so grateful for this garden. We love greens! Our family loves greens! So, to be able to harvest enough for others to enjoy is truly a blessing. . . .
