Newbies - Just starting out

A place for those of us who are just dipping our toes into Homegrown living. Maybe we're looking to change how we buy our food, what we buy...Maybe we've started our first garden and have questions. If you're green, this is the place for you!

"thanks David.  Something similar to us, although I'm not sure we're young enough to launch a full blown homestead.  Think it's biting off too much to take on animal husbandry and a small farm at 50 or 55? "

A Letter From My Farmer - It's Spring!

It was so nice to be able to picture the beginnings of the food I will be eating this summer, and what farmer Steve is up to as the ground awakens again. I thought I would share it with you, too!

An example of my CSA share - can't wait!!

Hello all!

An Ode To The Casserole

This less-than-wintry winter we’re having here in New England has got me thinking about how to fake winter – at least the indoors part – with warming, savory foods.  Part of the fun of winter is holing up inside, keeping cozy, and cooking a pot of something good.

For months now, I’ve been enjoying the lessons all the animals have been teaching me about unconditional love, sacrifice and patience, the basics of parenting. I’ve watched when a sudden storm brews up and a cold rain starts pelting down as my tiny Bantam hen […]
