Another #puremichigan #sunset tonight here in southeastern Michigan. Tonight’s array of colors hung around longer than usual... made for a nice end to a long day in the field. #farmer #familyfarm #farming #michiganfarm #johndeere #corn #harvest18 #tractor #rightwhereiwannabe #justabrokefarmer

Good luck to all of the hunters tomorrow on Opening Day!

Please don’t shoot the black ones!

Does anyone else remember this book from when they were little? I saw it today and instantly remembered it. Had to snag it for the girls. Such a cute Christmas book. ❤️

Tucking in all the baby greens for yet again another unseasonably cold night. There's a hint of 40* and sunshine in the forecast for tomorrow though! Bring it on!

Throwback! Yep, this is how we used to start the peppers. A box with tin foil (for light reflection), a single 100 watt LED light bulb, nasty big box store fungus gnat infested soil, and clear cups (roots hate light). How did these little guys make it 🤣. I've learned a lot in the last few years about getting the maximum potential growth out of the peppers inside. We all start somewhere, keep setting goals and chase your dreams. Don't think about it, make it happen! ---> swipe

🚜First round of shirts are finally here! All shirts are made to order, with limited supplies, so order quickly if you want one. We are super excited to be working with Karry Brook of in Detroit. When you buy a shirt you will not only be supporting us at but also her and her family. We tested many printers both in Canada and the USA and her work was far and above the rest. Thank you Karry for all you do and for making this possible. And thank you everyone who comments, follows, and loves what we do. We couldn't do it without you. So much more to come. Happy farming 🌱🌻☀️Link to Kerry's site in bio. - @womenwhofarm & Thanks much for reposted

I've been trying hard to take a break from our small farm but I have such big plans for it, it's been difficult to not have it occupy my mind...constantly. 🤯 I am beyond excited for next year. Steve & I try not to talk a lot about farm plans until after the New Year (since we devote every spare minute to it for most of the year). While Steve and I are both very much introverted people our personalities couldn't be more opposite. For example, when I get an idea in my head, it goes from a thought to 'it is definitely happening' and leaving all rationale and logic aside as to exactly how it's going to happen. 🙃 Steve is the planner. He is a perfectionist to his very core and has a plan B (and C) for everything. Which he usually doesn't need since he has already thought of all the things that could go wrong from the beginning. But seriously, we can't wait to share next year's agenda.
PS, the chickens don't ever come off the roof. It's the place to be. 😅

It's hard to believe that the ducks love the snow! Today it's 19° and they have already been in the water and are currently laying in the snowy grass.

All of our animals have constant access to the barn, food, and fresh water... these two choose to stay outside. 🤣

Blowing out the irrigation lines last week...Bridger absolutely loved it!

24 Degrees and snowy outside, but nice and cozy in the hoophouse. #wintersalads #seasonaleating #hoophouse #michiganfarm #smallfarm #organicfarm

Last night we had the privilege of hosting a local knitting group in our shop for the first time. We had such a great time we would love to do it more often.
Have a fiber group, foodies or book club looking for a field trip? Let us know and we can set up an evening of tea and cookies. While the shop is open Friday 1-5 and Saturday 9-1 we would be glad to arrange a time that works for you, either as an individual or a group.

Seeds, seeds, and more seeds! Shown here are a few different seed heads, a blooming Brown-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba), and an Asian Lady Beetle. Asian Lady Beetles bite, but are beneficial for most of the year and have contributed to a decrease in pesticide use on many crops. The seed heads from top to bottom include: Sweet Violets (Viola odorata, love how the pods pop open!), New York Ironweed (Vernonia noveboracensis, fuzz!), and Garlic Chives (Allium tuberosum)! 😀 🌻🌱🐞

At least it’s pretty 💙❄️☃️

We haven't gotten as far as we would like, but nonetheless, we're still making progress on our new greenhouse. We'll get it done soon enough!

We moved the herd back across the road yesterday. The white polywire fence blended in with the snow. Consequently, several broke through.
🤦‍♂️
Luckily, we guided them back on the right path before they ran around the entire county.
🐃
Huge thanks to our family and friends who helped!! We couldn’t have done it without you.
🙌
Here’s the start before the footage was cut short due to 100% focus being directed to preventing the breakaway.

Happy kids, happy mom. Going on an hour of quiet time 🙌🏻❤️

Don’t get me wrong I love Thanksgiving and a good plate of food, however our house is in full prepare for Christmas mode.
I was looking on Pinterest for toddler friendly Christmas activities for Charlee, ones Mya can participate in too and came across homemade Gingerbread play-dough. So. Easy. But I had to add a little more to it, so decorate your gingerbread man as many times as you want! Many of you know we’ve been doing “homeschool” with Charlee so that’s where I thought I needed a little bit more to this activity. The Gingerbread Man book! We’re gonna read that and then create! I can’t wait to see what they think of it. For Charlee I plan to ask her things like, “find the red ball”. But most of all I just want her to create whatever her little heart desires.
What activities do you guys do that are toddler friendly during the Christmas/holiday season?
