It's a cool, sunny, catch up on washing eggs kinda day. Let's just say we got in the weeds so me and LR worked together and knocked them out. Scary how much we are alike in our conversations. Like really scary. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #theperfectpasturedegg

It's been cold, rainy, and downright gloomy these past few days which calls for lots and lots of broth. (Yes it's also called stock but let's be honest, that doesn't sound as good as broth.) But while making broth, you also have everything right there for some good ol traditional roasted chicken.... so why not. Simple comfort foods are my favorite. Emphasis on simple. What comfort foods instantly slow things down for you? Foods that when all is ugly around you, regardless of that, when you eat it, it's as if roots come through your feed and anchor you to the ground. That savory moment. You know what I'm talking about!! #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway

This week has been one of those weeks that require a lot of reflection and honest discussion. First, I want to thank @fivechicksandafarmer for putting up with me during this time because I have been quite the bear. (Your words of encouragement and your ability to listen were the picture of being my "helpmate". I am so thankful for you.) I wasn't mad at anyone, but as @legitfirstbornchick would say, "just being salty". (Not sweet). We started farming in 2006 and have been doing it full time for over 7 years now. We started very small. We had very little working capital and farming requires a lot of input costs before you ever have product to sell. There's a saying that goes, "If you want to make a million dollars farming, you better start with two." Well, anyone that does this for a living realizes the difficulty that farming brings and how true that statement is. Farming's not about the money. Yes it has to be viable. Any business does. But if it were only about money, and profit maximization, well, you would be discouraged and honestly, quit. Farming is in fact a lifestyle. Now over the last couple years, Instagram and Facebook have been a great way for farmers to connect with the outside world. I would honestly say it's revolutionized the ability for small farmers to connect, and get product into consumers hands that never would have known said farms exist. Because of these opportunities, we have considered options that we have never considered before. Adapting in business is usually what keeps them growing. But our WHY in farming has always been that we wanted to connect people to the local food systems around them. When there was no social media, this meant creating chat forums, going to business's and doing health talks, lots of open farm days and tours. Really bringing those people that wanted a different option for food in close and connecting them to something amazing. Local people, supporting local farms. Creating a "Community Through Food" that invested in not just the food, but the story behind the food. It was a lot of leg work, but it was super exciting to see it coming together. ***Cont in comments

Happy birthday to the most awesome 8 year old I know. Ruthie, I feel this last year has been an extremely fruitful year for you. I have seen so much growth in your attitude and personality. I know it's hard essentially being the middle child in a run of four girls. I can't even pretend to understand that whole birth-order process. However, the deep conversations we have had this year, through lots and lots of time spent together, has been such a blessing to this daddy. You're such a gift to our family. You're amazingly beautiful, extremely smart, witty, creative, independent, giving, and your love for babies melts my heart. You see, you have every excuse to be extremely selfish. To not have to give of yourself to help love on and take care of babies when they are around. After all, you're eight. However, you choose to hold, cuddle, love on, and invest in any baby that comes around you. And with a happy heart on top of that. This selflessness is a picture of the heart change that is going on in your life and more then anything, this makes me proud. I love you so very much and thank you for loving me the way you do. I am so excited to see what this next year looks for you and I will be there cheering you on because I am your biggest fan. Happy Birthday. You rock!! #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway (photo cred: @fivechicksandafarmer You're hot!!!)

The first night after lots of litters is always the toughest. Everyone is getting settled in, you went from being by yourself to now having 9, 10, 11 little ones swarming you. Did I mention you weigh 400 pounds and they weigh less than 1. This should be overwhelming to say the least but last night, all our mommas did an amazing job. 30 piglets born yesterday evening. 30 piglets still alive this morning. Good job gals. Y'all make it look effortless. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway

Carnitas mixed with Yonder Way Eggs equals awesomeness. Some eggs are good but these yolks y'all are beyond great. #theperfectpasturedegg #theyonderway #yonderwayfarm

The weekend eggs are washed and cartoned. These suckers fly off she shelf so good thing is, they won't be here very long. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #theperfectpasturedegg

I figure most people never get to see babies being born so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!!#yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #foodwithastory

"It's the final countdown!!!" (With my best Europe voice) Our true farm to table dinner with @bangersaustin is just 3 days away. 3 days!!!

Not very often are the pastures dusted with the white stuff. So when it happens, we all kinda act giddy as kids and the snow tales will commence. Pretty sure we got 12" last night. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe 18. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway (seriously though, it was 80 degrees 3 days ago).

Warm dinner on a โ€œcoldโ€ night. Chicken from #yonderwayfarm #yonderway #farmfresh #farmtotable #castironskillet #castironcooking

A food pic for once. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Grass fed chuck roast from @yonderwayfarmer That was in the crockpot all day. Brussels sprouts and onions that are almost burnt (just the way I like them). So delicious!

We got to go to the Yonder Way Farm today. A delicious lunch, tour of the farm and the animals & the kids got to hang out & play. It was fun! And Justin got to meet his real family ๐Ÿ˜‚ #yonderwayfarm

when you're just a little camera shy ... but still cute!! #yonderwayfarm #thanksgiving2017 #gingers (๐Ÿ“ธcreds @tannermantt )

A progressive state. I feel a farm has to operate with that mentality while also trying not to get the cart in front of the horse. But after twelve years of raising food for people to cook in their homes, we are super excited to have a space to showcase our products right where they were raised. Can't wait to see what pans out and incredibly thankful for the community that supports what we do. #communitythroughfood is a beautiful thing. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #foodwithastory

Eating healthy and responsibly can feel stressful. But the more youโ€™re educated about your food, the better choices you can make. This post isnโ€™t meant to upset you. Its purpose is to give you the facts so that you can be empowered in your purchases while grocery shopping. Switching to pasture raised eggs once a month, or buying from local farmers, might seem too small to make an impact. But small acts, when done repeatedly by many people, become movement towards change.

Man, had such a great time getting to hang out with the @abundantpermaculture family. Such a great crew, great story, and fun conversation. Thank y'all for sharing our story. For listening and documenting it. Cheers to your many adventures. Looking forward to the next time our paths cross. Go on over to their YouTube channel as watch then video they did on our farm.

Rebeka and Justin Rhodes (and fam) made a short stop in Buda on their Great American Farm tour! So grateful for the wonderful video they made of Farmer Javi and the cool shots they got of the farm. Gonna frame this one for the Farm store. They are on to everyoneโ€™s favorite Yonderway Farm next (@yonderwayfarmer @fivechicksandafarmer) and I am super excited to see the video there! All my heroes are farmers yโ€™all. .

Well that's a wrap. All the tables are put away, the chairs are stacked, and the dishes are washed. A lot goes into these events. They are exhausting. But.......they are so worth it. Food is a powerful force. It's something we all have in common. I don't care what political affiliation you are. Whether you're black, white, brown or purple. What your thoughts are on marriage or whether you're rich or poor. We can disagree on so many things but at the end of the day we'll all agree that we have to eat. Preferably 3 times a day. Sitting around with so many people from all walks of life, in different seasons, young and old, dropping their guard and sharing their stories over an insanely great meal is what it's all about. Just as all food has a story, (Some you're proud to support, some you're truly troubled over), all people have a story also. Getting to meet so many new people and hear a small part of their stories is super exciting. It's like the first sparks to what you hope becomes a roaring fire. It was a blessing to get to see so many choose to be a part of our farms story. I hope that there will be many more farm dinners and this community that we get to be a part of will continue to grow stronger. Thank you everyone who attended. We honestly couldn't do this with out you and can't wait to do it again. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #oldworldantieks #bangersaustin #foodwithastory #communitythroughfood

Easing into this Monday morning, but still soaking up the goodness of the weekend. Such an amazing experience at the Banger's dinner at Yonderway Farm. What an awesome experience to see what Farm to Table truly means. I'm so proud of the vison and passion behind my Sister and brother in law's farm. I always walk away inspired to be more intentional in knowing where our food comes from. It's always an honor to get to help them put these events together. Love you guys. @fivechicksandafarmer @yonderwayfarmer #yonderwayfarm

Dinner at the farm #yonderwayfarm #farmtotable

We have released a few more tickets for tomorrow's event at the farm. @blinkychef from @bangersaustin is smoking 3 whole pigs out in the pasture on some redneck smokers. It is phenomenal. @oldworldantieks has set up an amazing atmosphere to enjoy an amazing pairing of beers and wines along with just kicking back and enjoying the evening. The menu is fantastic, the people will be fantastic. Did I mention that that night will be fantastic? If you truly want to have an experience you can never get anywhere else, come eat with us. I promise you won't want to miss this. Ticket info in bio. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #bangersaustin #communitythroughfood

Today is a GREAT day for two reasons: Celebrating the #HoustonAstros #WorldSeriesChamps2017 (Woohoo!! ๐ŸŽ‰ โšพ๏ธ) AND picking up our first-ever delivery from #YonderWayFarm in #TheWoodlands!! They offer the cleanest, all-natural, highest quality beef ๐Ÿ„, pork ๐Ÿ–, chicken๐Ÿ”& eggs๐Ÿฅš and much more! If you live in the #Houston or #Austin area, you must order their products. Their cows graze on grass, the pigs root up the pastures and their chickens forage and roam freelyโ€”they are happy animals! Not only are they fresh & tasty and ethically raised but Farmers Jason & Lynsey and their four adorable chicks are THE sweetest family! #SupportLocalFarmers http://yonderwayfarm.com

Sometimes your best blind is a chair right behind the tractor and shredder. We've had major coyote problems lately. Coming up and grabbing our layers during early morning and throughout the day. I can't stand that. Feels like someone is coming into your house and robbing you. Especially when they kill multiples and don't eat them. Got one taken care of just at dawn, now waiting to see if any stragglers care to make an appearance. Sitting here watching all the hens roam around and knowing there's one less coyote coming up kinda makes you all happy inside. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway

The broilers love these cooler mornings. We're finally feeling like fall y'all and everyone is all the happier for it. This is about 1600, truly free range pastured birds doing what they were created to do. Fresh grass + fresh air + NON GMO corn/soy free feed = amazing chickens. Pretty simple equation. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #foodwithastory

It's pretty amazing to watch her in action every single day. Her intentionality not just with the animals and farm, but with our customers constantly blows me away. Thank you LR for your hustle each and every day, especially today. There were many uh curveball thrown at us yet you took each one in stride and pushed through. Thank you for always being right there till the very end usually with very little grumbling. So rest well tonight, we get to do it again tomorrow. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #foodwithastory

We never got into farming to be divisive about food. We simply wanted to be a part of what we felt was the alternative to the conventional, mass produced food system that is all around us. All food has a story. Knowing this, we wanted our story to be one that we were proud to showcase to all that cared to be a part of it. A story that allows us to hold our heads high and sleep well at night. A story we hope inspires, and causes good conversation. That's what food is all about. It's the binder that draws people together and breaks down walls that normally hold up under pressure. Real food does that. And if you can actively be a part of the process that is farming, through being a consumer, well, you enjoy that food a whole lot more. Ignorance isn't bliss when it comes to food. Be a part of the farming communities around you. Know the story behind your food. You won't regret it. #yonderwayfarm #theyonderway #foodwithastory #communitythroughfood
