A tired and happy me tonight, after a very productive day in the garden. The forecast promises another long period of hard frost starting tomorrow night which brings us quite a bit into March before I will be able to get something done again. So I think I will spend the time sowing some of my early flower and vegetable seeds indoors like chili and onions, and as soon as the ground thaws again it is time to direct sow broad beans outside.

The girls are killing it with the spring eggs even though it still feels like winter in Wisconsin.

As requested, here are some additional photos of the #rabbittractor with the bunnies in it for the first time today. We still have some final details to complete like getting the lid hinges on and reinforcing the wheels, but it’s working great already. #pasturedrabbits #meatrabbits #raiseyourownfood #albertahomestead

Recap of my video last night: two weeks in, and at 14% weight loss. 😱Zero mold growth or signs of rancidity, with an unbelievably sweet smell. I’m going to let this baby hang for another two weeks before sampling. But, my husband and I agreed to just let it keep hanging. And whenever we have a hankerin’ I’ll go down and cut a hunk off for dinner (yes you can do that!) This will allow us to sample the guanciale throughout the curing process to taste the development of flavor as it ages. I am already thinking about what type of cure to try next 🧐👍🏻🐷 #charcuterie #guanciale #curedmeats #curedmeat #westonaprice #cured #meatlover #homecured

Raise your own food-~ Doesn’t need to be complicated with herds of cattle or acres of crops. A simple act of gathering eggs is one step closer toward ending factory farming and being more connected to our food & our land. So here’s to you...from the urban farmer who raises 3 chickens to the callused handed, up at the crack of dawn #farmher or him. Thank goodness for our awareness and keep on keeping! #chickenkeeping #farmon #farmlikeyoumeanit #saynotofactoryfarming #farming #raiseyourownfood #raisechickens #homestead #smallfarms . 👫 ⤵ Double tap & tag your friend Love it 😉 . 🐔 !🙏 Plz Follow us - @chickenloverfc if you love Chicken❤️! .

Better late than never.... Our 20 meat birds arrived this afternoon! This is our first time raising actual meat birds instead of just our unwanted roosters. We decided to raise Red Ranger birds mostly because they grow more naturally and free range and move around a lot more than other meat bird breeds. It will take a little longer to get them nice and fat but it will be worth the wait! Cheers to raising your own food 🍻 . . . . #redrangers #redranger #meatbird #raiseyourownfood #growyourownfood #pasturedchickens #freerangechickens #farmtotable #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteading #iamamodernfarmer #farmlife #farmher #womenwhofarm #vermont #vermontbyvermonters #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag

Up close and personal✨ I’m a huge fan of big roosters. I like them large and in charge, like my roo, Action. Action is doing his job well, but when it’s time for retirement aka crock pot this big bird will make the best chicken tacos.

The deal with it table....😬 I seem to be good with the time it takes to plant it, tend it and pick it but once it comes in it makes me a little cray cray 😳 so this table has become my holding area... Today, however, it's getting clear. Tomatoes will be roasted and turned to sauce, basil will be added to said sauce,cucumbers will be fermented into pickles and the calendula will be de- petaled and jarred. What's the best way to store the peppers????

Read until the end to hear what she did with the piglets last night! You should know in the very beginning of this story how proud we are of our 1 1/2 year old free pound puppy. Matt and I have always loved and owned dogs. But as we started the adoption process, we re-homed our St Bernard and decided to wait until everything was done and our girls were home and adjusted before we got another. Side note: I praise God for that glimmer of wisdom we had and the seed in our minds that said it wouldn’t work to keep him in our home. We quickly came to learn our sweet Ayana was terrified of medium+ size dogs. After we got home, and after working with her to overcome her fear we discussed getting a puppy for the family at Christmas time. We knew we wanted to adopt a mid-sized mutt with black lab in it because Matt’s childhood dog was a wonderful black lab. Then, last spring, my friend messaged me, “we can’t take care of this puppy we adopted from the pound, do you guys want her?” My brain said, “you wanted to wait until Christmas!” Then my heart said, “but she’s perfect!” Matt picked up Sarah, named her, and surprised the kids with her. Ayana immediately liked her and pet her (which was still a big deal back then). 🌟my story is too long for Instagram, keep reading it in the comments🌟

If you like hot peppers and spicy things, home grown organic peppers blow the rest of them out of the park. The longer you age them on the plant, the hotter they become. • Peppers are also able to produce all year round, so if you have a sunroom, peppers are actually perennial veggies and can keep on keeping on all through the winter! • Here are a few of the pepper varieties we currently have on the farm! • • • #onthefarm #inthefield #lifeonthefarm #humanelyraised #smallfarm #localfarm #supportlocal #buylocal #smallbusiness #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #sustainablefarm #farm #farmlife #lifeonthefarm #country #animals #animallovers #farmer #savannahga #downtownsavannah #blufftonsc #bluffton #lowcountry #southcarolina #womenwhofarm #raiseyourownfood

I went out to spend some quiet time in the garden before the kids get up. Instead I found this naughty chicken wandering around where she's not supposed to be. The fox are watching, little chicken! I chased her around a bit with no success until she decided enough was enough and put herself back. Crazy bird. Now I'm back in the house breathing in one of my favorite oil blends to get me back to that Zen state I was looking for to begin with. Serenity is super good for that. (And even better is the fact that today I ordered a bottle of Serenity and they threw in a bonus bottle of Lavender! I'll get you the deets if you want some!) #lifeonthefarm #feelingzen #chickenlittle

When your husband leaves for work early on a Saturday morning and you can’t sleep due to the medicine you are taking, you take advantage of a beautiful morning. . Of course, you may regret this later in the day due to still being sick, but really, it was totally worth it. . . . #sunriselovers #sunriseonthefarm #earlymorning #thetannehillhomestead

Brent specializes in perfectly prepared meats. 👌🏼 #summergrilling We were out of chicken so I just ran down to our neighbors’ house and picked up a couple of freshly harvested ones. This might be my favorite thing about living out here. Thank you, @allthingsbrite for some beautiful, delicious birds!

You order, I pick. Oh yeah, then I deliver to your door. Doesn’t get much fresher than that! • New #eggular memberships coming this fall! • We’re far from it, but our goal is that all of our #eggular members order all of their meat, veggies and eggs through us instead of the hassle of the farmers market or the grocery store. We’re getting there with the meat and getting better with the veggies!

Day #15 for @essence_homestead #summeronthehomestead Today’s theme is - “Lessons Learned.” I doubt I have enough time to discuss them all!...because there are so many! I have learned so much about gardening, livestock, canning, sewing, self-sufficient living, and even how to be a better mother - all from homesteading. I think when you decide to live the way we homesteaders do - you constantly learn how to either do something new or make the things we already do, even simpler. (Oh.....and the pictures of the flowers have nothing to do with today’s theme lol - just thought they were pretty.) #homesteading #homesteadersofcanada #homesteadingrocks #simplelife #countrylife #gardening #raiseyourownfood #growyourownfood

We're harvesting our first batch of #tilapia right now. 9 months old and we're averaging 23 oz each. We're harvesting them in small batches and are starting to experiment with purge tanks, water temps, etc for flavor. If you raise tilapia, how do you handle the days before processing them? #Aquaponics #Aquaculture #raiseyourownfood #fish #learnsomethingnew

The white rocks sure did grow well. They weighed in at 8-10 lbs at 9 weeks. Even with a few losses, they are very cost efficient bird to raise. And they don’t appear to be too fatty either.

Ferinand is looking lovely in his new nose ring... Of course the first thing he tried to do when we were done was nurse🙄 I had hoped sassy would wean him but with the approaching due date of the new calf creeping up in September it was time to intervene. Sassy needs at least 30 days of being dry( not milking) before calving to keep her in optimum health.

Chickens are weird. They have 8 nesting boxes yet they insist on using the same one. Sometimes at the same time. The one on top literally laid her egg on the head of the bottom one. 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️

It’s #farmherfriday again! Thanks for hosting @camoandfeathers _ Today has me thinking how we can literally live sustainably off of less than 5 acres. I’m very fortunate to have 20 acres on one of our farms and just shy of 6 on the other. Here I’m learning how to grow crops, raise meat rabbits, raise beef/dairy cattle and have he horses, lake and woods to play in. Wild herbs grow all around and the sky is so clear at night. I truly am blessed to have #rustikalewandernacres - a nod to my Volga German ancestors who farmed in Kansas and Missouri. My family was a family of farmers and while it skipped my dad, I’m glad to be reclaiming the meaning to my last name. (My last name literally translates to Little Herder.) _ #farmher #womeninag #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #farmer #country #sustainableliving #raiseyourownfood #growyourownfood #iamafarmher #modernfarmer #hobbyfarmer

So I learned some new words today while Brent installed our living room ceiling fan. 😂 Seriously, I’m so happy because this is a game-changer for these hot summer days in a house with no a/c. Who knew building this barnhouse ourselves would take this long??? Little by little we are checking off all those small summer projects that just need to get done. Only a few hundred more to go. 😜 #patienceisavirtue #thehousethatbuiltme

#farmfail time 🤣 . We have a litter of 4 meat rabbits we've just been putting off slaughtering due to time (we'll be doing that Sunday) and a week or so ago I wanted to take the chance to experiment with putting them out on pasture with the chickens... . I'd heard other farmers on here had great success with that, and everyone was very content with the arrangement when we tried it. However, it was not to be. Apparently our rabbits don't care about electric fences and walked right through 🤦🏼‍♀️ they explored everywhere, ate weeds mostly. we wrangled 3 throughout the day, but the fourth... nowhere to be found! . A couple days pass and I go in to check on the rabbits one hot afternoon. I guess it missed its friends, because sure enough, it had found its way into the rabbit house and was hanging out. This rascally rabbit had gotten into our orchard and decided that pear wood was delicious, but luckily did not girdle the tree! . . Moral of the story: learn from your mistakes and build them rabbit tractors 👍🏻 . . . . . . #rabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #rexrabbit #meatrabbits #grassfedmeat #pasturedrabbit #farmlife #homestead #growyourownfood #raiseyourownfood #homesteadersofinstagram #pnwfarm #westernwafarm

Here we go again... Sometimes I feel like we’re getting pretty good at this whole farming/homesteading/raising our own food thing, and then other days we go down and count our chickens and realize we’re missing a whole bunch. So back to the incubator we go and in 21 days we will have more fluffy chicks to add to the flock. Cross your fingers they all hatch and they’re all hens 🤞🏻 . . . . . #homesteading #homesteadersofinstagram #farmlife #farmher #womenwhofarm #homesteader #growyourownfood #raiseyourownfood #incubator #hatchlings #vermont #vermonting #vermontbyvermonters

The sex change fairy hit one of our "girls," so now we have 2 SF boys and 3 SF girls.

First of the year. ❤️ In spite of all of its faults, the one thing I really like about Instagram is the record it keeps on all the farm things. 🌱

At the end of this month I will be heading to the mainland to pick up ten new different purebred hens. White and black Sussex, a few that lay green and brown eggs and several others whose names I don't know the english equivalent of 🐔 with those ten, as well as our 18 chickens hatched this year, it means that even though we are expanding the chicken fencing (again) we still need to say goodbye to at least 10 of our older hens, and they are headed for the freezer and dinner table. It is always slightly whistful to say goodbye to animals who have served us and entertained us, and who I have cared for daily, but until the day I decide to become a vegan (which I doubt will ever happen) that is also how I prefer to get meat on the table: happy, stressfree, freerange and natural from birth to death 🐔 ❤
