The Night The Wind Blew

We’ve been watching the weather quite closely the last couple weeks. Between wanting to have the windows open during the day, making sure we close them before the rain starts, to figuring out if we need to add more straw to the coops to help keep the birds warm, there is always some reason oneContinue reading “The Night The Wind Blew”

Recipe: Home Made Chili Powder

Picture this: A chilly winter afternoon, I decided to make a batch of turkey chili, with some of our delicious pasture raised turkey that we ground and froze. I get half the ingredients into the dutch oven, grab the container of chili powder, and it’s empty. SERIOUSLY? You can’t have chili without chili powder!!! WhatContinue reading “Recipe: Home Made Chili Powder”

I have seen many different setups that work, and manyContinue reading “Being Farmers Market Vendors: How We Set Up”

We’re On The Front Page!

Last week, we got a message online from a writer at the local newspaper. He was interested in interviewing us about the unseasonable weather we’ve had in our area lately, and we were more than happy to have him come and visit. Brooks Hepp, from Battle Creek Enquirer, came over that evening and we chattedContinue reading “We’re On The Front Page!”

We Hate Helium Balloons

Pretty intense title, right? Well, we chose to omit some more… colorful… language from it. This should be sufficient to get the point across. So, why do we hate balloons? Several reasons actually. Balloon waste has been found in the great lakes. We’ve rid ourselves of microbeads in most of our cosmetics, but the wasteContinue reading “We Hate Helium Balloons”

Something Fun: Taco The Goat Stickers

Since acquiring our hodgepodge of goats, one of the little guys has amassed quite a fan club. Taco, a tiny little thing, has captivated so many people. He is small. Like really, really small. And I think that is part of his appeal! We decided to work with our friend Nicole Lapointe, who we’ve hadContinue reading “Something Fun: Taco The Goat Stickers”
