This Week{end} on the Farmstead, September 13

Good morning and happy weekend to you all! It’s been a while since I’ve put my hands to keyboard here at SFF, but I’m here, and it’s been a busy summer for us here. I’ll not break things up in my usual format, but rather, I’ll just ramble a bit about what has been going […]

This Week on the Farmstead, August 14

Good Friday morning, everyone! This one is going to have to be short because I’m trying to get it typed before Kieran gets up! This week has been pretty much non-stop for me. With all the work that I wanted to get done before Kieran got here yesterday, and all that needs to be maintained […]

Happy Friday morning to my favorite readers! This week on the farmstead, it’s been HOT and sticky! And the flies have been AMAZING (and NOT in a good way)! I have one landing on me repeatedly as I type. Life on a farm, right? There’s been some talk about us bloggers showing only the good […]

Why I Gave Up Organic Food–and Why It’s Good

Happy Friday, friends, and welcome back to our farmstead! Grab a cup of whatever floats your boat this morning and set a bit while I share what’s happening here on our peaceful little farmstead in Southern California! This week has been a really nice sort of busy. I think what has made it nice is […]

What’s Wrong With Backyard Breeding Anyway?

This is a question that my husband and I ponder every now and then, and lately, it’s become a conversation that we’ve been having more frequently. Though both types of breeders may have the end goal to sell quality animals, there are clear differences in thought between those who sell ‘responsibly bred’ animals, versus those […]
