This Week on the Farmstead – June 26

Thanks again for popping in and setting with me today while I chatter on about what’s been going on this past week. I’m so excited that you are here, because it’s really the one time in the week that I’m just being me, rather than teacher, if that makes sense! I love teaching but I […]

Why Farming Has to Work for Us

There’s no going back now. We’ve moved our family and 18 years of accumulated items on our .18 of an acre to live on our new one acre hobby farm. We’ve planted trees, built gardens, added animals to the farmstead, and accumulated more items to make the life we chose for ourselves–the life we believe […]

Making the Farmstead Work Like A Well Oiled Machine

I am an organized person, but I wasn’t always. There was a time in my life when I felt so out of control that I didn’t have any idea where to even start to find peace. I prayed about it. What’s funny about prayer is that you think you are praying for one thing, then […]

This Week on the Farmstead – June 12

It’s been a wonderfully quiet week. Todd has been going in to work 2 hours early each day, and because of that, he has been taking the car to work. This (and the heat) has kept us indoors mostly. I’ve had a ton of time to sit and write, which is one of my favorite […]

Commercial feeds are so cheap, easy, and the perfect no-brainer option for the busy homesteader, but are they meeting the needs of your farm? I’m […]

This Week on the Farmstead – June 5

This week, there’s been a lot going on around here! Welcome into our home today! First off, I wanted to show you the fantastic job that Todd did in adding tile to the corner beneath our woodburning stove. Here’s what it looked like when we first moved in: It was cute and homey the way […]

This Week on the Farmstead – May 29

Another great week has come and gone at Stone Family Farmstead! First of all, all of us but Danny got the stomach flu! That was a bummer! I haven’t been sick so many times in one year in a long time, let alone in the same month! The upside was that I was able to […]

This Week on the Farmstead – May 22

This week on the farmstead, I’ll share with you some photos of the wonderfully eventful Saturday last weekend. We celebrated a belated Mother’s Day with Todd’s Mom and Grandma, and some of our closest family attended, which was really nice. Before I get to that, though, I’ll share a little of what has been going […]

Beyond Aspiring Herbalist {and a FREE herbal eBook!}

Are you an aspiring herbalist? I am, and I want to go beyond just aspiring to be an herbalist–I want to BE one. Here’s why. I want to be an herbalist because I want to know what to do when my family has minor medical issues to deal with–or, God forbid, a disaster. I want […]
