We {my husband} made our first charcoal over a year ago and we will never go back to store bought briquettes! Here’s how he did it: My husband took 55 gallon barrel and cut out the bottom...essentially a 55 gallon toilet paper roll. He sat the barrel up on blocks so air could flow underneath, and then filled it full of 12in mesquite logs. He lit the logs and once it was burning/hot all the way down, he poured a gallon of water on top to smother the fire & he covered the top with a piece of sheet metal, put a rock on top, and kicked out the bricks so that the barrel was on the ground...you need to cut off air flow. He let it sit for a couple days and viola! Homemade charcoal! . . #WasteNotWantNot #HomemadeCharcoal #Homestead #BackyardHomestead #TheGrayHomestead # #Homesteader #Homestead #DIY #MesquiteCharcoal #TexasMesquite

Bee humble. True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less. - CS Lewis. #wordstoliveby 🐝 How do you practice humility in your life? We’ve had some unexpected events occur lately and this is something I am constantly reminding myself of. . . More about our lip balms: Our beeswax lip balms are made with beeswax from a small, local farmer near us in South Dakota. 🍯 We use organic ingredients and a paperboard tubing that is recyclable and 100% biodegradable. ♻️ Our lip balms are DOUBLE the size of a normal tube! 🙀 A portion of the proceeds help us plant 1 acre of wildflowers through our partnership with the Bee and Butterfly Habitat Fund. 🌻

When it comes to being me, I'm 100% myself at all times, for better or worse. But when it comes to selling things, like these pretty butt nuggets from our ladies, I'm weirdly introverted. I dont want to seem pushy, I HATE pushy sales people. So I go to the opposite extreme. Today I went against what I wanted to do (nothing) and I messaged a customer that I hadn't heard from in a couple of weeks...turns out he had been crazy busy and he indeed needed eggs! . Moral of the story, find a happy medium, dont be pushy but dont be a mole person. Be like the cute Prarie Dogs at the zoo, pop out, look cute, get a little sun, sell some eggs, then go back to your hideaway. Ok, I understand that's a blurred analogy, but yall get the point, right?

Went outside to take a picture of these pretty eggs to say spring was coming and boy is it ever! I found this flowers popping up through all these frozen leaves! 😍 i spent the day planning my seed order, writing down chicken, turkey, and duck breeds i want to get, and researching incubators!

Who's interested in a private class the day before the conference? Join me! Reposted from @homesteadersofamerica - Here’s a sneak peek of some the classes we’re offering: 🌿 Beekeeping for Beginners— Take an in-depth look at hives at The Farm on Quail Hollow in nearby Bentonville, VA. Just a few miles from the fairgrounds! Weather permitting, you’ll get to be hands on with the hives, learn how to keep bees from expert beekeepers, and more! 🌿 In-Depth Wild Foraging With Darryl Patton— You’ve been askig for this one, and we heard you loud and clear! We’re meeting at the fairgrounds and taking a crew of 20 people to Shenandoah National Park (just a few miles from the fairgrounds) to do an in-depth nature walk on trails with expert herbalist Darryl Patton. If you’ve ever wanted to learn about wild herbal foraging and wild medicinal and edible plants, you don’t want to miss this! 🌿 Preserving the Harvest with Ann Accetta-Scott— One of our most popular hands on classes last year is back this year! Learn how to pressure can, water bath can, ferment, store your harvest, and more! Students loved this all-day class and walked away with freshly preserved food that they canned all on their own! 🌿 Blacksmithing on the Homestead— Learn basic blacksmithing skills from Josh Langfitt! The first half of the day will be basics, and the second half of the day will be putting those skills to use and making something! This workshop was so cool last year! 🌿 Raising Meat Rabbits from Hutch to Plate— Another popular workshop from last year, Jeremy from Independence Acres Homestead is coming back for another round this year! Learn in depth on how to raise, grow, breed, butcher, and cook rabbits on the homestead. Each student (or couple) gets to butcher their own rabbit (provided by us) and take it home! Recipes and hands on cooking are happening too! ...and we have several more workshops that we’re working on! 🌿 Stayed tuned for more classes, info, and the announcements for when registration is open! HOA members get first dibs on class seats before released to the public. But don’t worry, we normally have seats leftover! But it’s one of the perks for being a member!

Adding the final touches before blocking this scarf for #hufflepuff No. 1 in the family, Mav. This pattern is one I created a couple winters ago, so I’d wonderful being able to finally finish up some of these creations! Speaking of finishing creations, I found MY scarf that I crocheted (just need to finish the final edging and trim) last spring & then totally forgot about because we moved promptly after! Luckily I found it at the bottom of my yarn box when I started on this project! . I just love using my time to create things like this, from yarn emerges a fun creation!! I don’t think I’ll ever get over the magic of yarn work, the magic of “nothing” becoming “something” just hooks me in every time, whether I’m crocheting or knitting!! How about you??

Starting (maybe a little prematurely) some pepper seedlings inside today. I made a little plant stand with grow light to get things going. I also found an interesting looking Permaculture book at the thrift store for $6. Next winter we’ll have some animals so I hopefully won’t be as impatient waiting for spring to get here.

It's been a long day around here. Pop's little helper held the hose so we could burn down some old brush that was blocking our way to the compost bin, which has received it's bi-yearly flip. 🐓 🐓 🐓 🐔 🐔 The new flock is getting their fluffy butts kicked by the old guard and I'm dyin. The pecking order establishment is harder on me than it is on them I think. Of the six new girls only one is having a hard time. Shes a runt, scared and stressed. So she's been in my arms most of the day :) her name is officially Baby. With a dose of liquid chicken vitamins, some dried mealworms and black oil sunflower seeds and a safe spot in a nest for the day...well just send us some good chicken juju please.

Hi friends!!! I haven’t been on IG much lately, Matt and I went out of town for a much needed weekend together. We got to see @turnpiketroubadours in concert on Thursday, spent Friday morning out shopping and Friday night out with friends. We’ve spent the rest of the weekend cuddling our sick girl, who I think has influenza😢After a weekend full of yummy food we are getting back to our normal way of eating. We are done with keto and back to a homemade, whole food diet. Lots of ferments, veggies, home grown and locally grown meats, wild game, and of course lots of sourdough😋 I’m starting a new starter today and using @amy.fewell recipe. Can’t wait to start using this in a week or so! #sourdough #sourdoughstarter #homesteadinglife #homesteading #homestead #homesteader #homemaking #homemaker #homecooking #homemade

One of the trees that came down today was a black birch that I had been delaying cutting down because it was a beautiful tree, but it was planted in the worst possible spot. But, at least it will go to good use as firewood.

May I use this Sunday to fill you with my overwhelming gratitude for the recent steps we took regarding our herd, being our equestrian four-footers. On Wednesday end of day our second mare arrived home. It was exciting, as last year we had three horses, 2 geldings 1 mare but 1 gelding didn’t work out in this herd, he found another home.. So we searched, waited, thought it over and decided on this young mare, unspoiled by human negative intervention and full of curiosity. We thought her to be the perfect fit for our small herd. And she is, everything works out so beautiful. The two mares buddied up, our Zoë being the alpha mare. They groom each other. Sleep when the other one is keeping watch. Kick when things needs to be settle a bit and walk, gallop together in our terrain. The gelding (is he?!) being the head of the herd but so strongly social towards us, humans, it’s amazing. Think a dog wagging his tail when he sees you, well this horse Bo is whinnying every time he sees us!!! ~ Next to all this horse adventure we also have 3 burros born!!! We decided for them that for now they can’t leave our terrain as there are killer dogs loose out there (long story, don’t ask 🙈) until they are way bigger. For anyone following me longer, they know we lost 3 mini burros to pneumonia last March... We will NOT have that happen again!!! Life is full. When you run a homestead there’s the ups and the downs. Period. But you do have a hand in how things evolve to a certain degree. ~ Immediately when our new mare arrived we let her go free with the others, without halter. Trusting the course in this. She was clearly handled by humans from birth, not afraid at all, no negativity imposed. But being tied on a rope for her whole life for sure. Her enthusiasm is enormously. And we love to see her happiness. With the other ones & the fact that she can be horse, as horses should be allowed to be. We ride every evening in the hills here, her just being on a leadrope as she needs to gain stamina and muscle first. ~ photo of our second burro born on his first day on 20th of January 2019. ~ My heart is overflowing 🙏🏼 ~ #voiceforthevoiceless #homesteader #grounding #meditation at Chile

A simple red barn. ✨ I remember the first time I saw this barn and walked inside. My face lit up as I looked at five empty stalls and dreamed of the animals that would call this place home. It was about 2 and a half years ago, and at that time we had 0 farm animals, but a whole lot of dreams. It fills my heart with such joy to think back to the time when we first visited this property and decided to make an offer. Now we get to call this place home, and slowly work to make it our own. The next big project? Tackling this barn and renovating it from the ground up! We can’t wait to share it with you this Spring!! • • • #sunshinefarmny #redbarn #farmlife #barnreno #thefarmhousemovement #homesteadersofinstagram #farmer #barnrenovation #bigredbarn #smallfarm #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarmer #farmher #homesteader #modernhomesteader #homesteadinglife #nyfarm #wny #upstateny #upstatenewyork #farmlife #modernfarm #modernfarmhousestyle #farmdreams #homesteadersofamerica #modernhomesteaders #vegetarianhomestead #plantbasedhomestead #homestead

Our family LOVES fishing! What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day ❤🎣! Usually we use fresh water drum for this recipe but tried blue catfish this time 😋🐟 It was delicious (even though the spice bag popped open)🙄 I usually use fresh baby potatoes and fresh corn on the cob, but it's a lil early. Mock roasted corn was a perfect addition! I dunno what to call this recipe but I'll share for those that want to try something different with their white flakey fish! 1 box Zatarain's shrimp &Crab boil (Just follow the box directions) 4 # fish Salt Lemons Cayenne (or slap ya mama cajun) . . . . . #fishing #fishinglife #fishrecipes #fishingislife #fish #catfishing #bluecatfish #catfishdinner #catfishrecipe #angler #freshwaterfishing #freshwaterfish #homesteader #homesteadinglife #Homestead #homesteading #homesteadliving #homesteaders #homesteadersofinstagram #homestead #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadlife #wildfoodlove #foragedfood #wildfoods #modernhuntergather #freefood #livingthesimplelife #simplelifepleasures #livealifeyoulove

I took this video yesterday. And in a weird twist, when I went out this morning to do chores, these 3 ducks were no where to be found. I didn't find any feathers, no signs of a scuffle, no other birds missing or hurt. They just vanished. So bizarre; the poor things. Now we've only got 1 runner hen left. Makes me sad 😔

The second seed request came today! It's from a woman with a son who is allergic to much of the commercially available foods. The doctors believe it's due to pesticides and such but he even has trouble with produce. Today I'm asking for any and all unique varieties you may have to make meal time more interesting for this young man! The mother was very humble with her request but indicated that interesting varieties would be helpful 🌱💕 If you have any interesting varieties please send out the brief form (link in bio) and it will give you my address. #thankyou #igetbywithalittlehelpfrommyfriends #seed #seedhoarder #seeds #seedswap #extraseeds #theseeddeed #edibles #growyourownfood #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #needforseed #growhappy #idigit #lovethyneighbor #sharingiscaring at Chesapeake Beach, Maryland

#ruminantsrule ... I never imagined a sheep could be such a character. We'd kept goats before we got sheep, and my experience of goats was of lofty, impatient animals who don't have a whole lot of time for human company - they'd much rather be rock climbing or adventuring up a mountain than hanging out with us monkey brains, and they don't much like being touched or petted. Sheep are different. Sheep are warm and fuzzy and affectionate, docile and cuddly. Freya greets us with bouncing delight, follows us around as we work, and not just for the treats in our pockets - she's lookin' for lovin'. And, sheep are far more intelligent than they're ever given credit for. They follow the flock with blind loyalty not out of brainlessness, but out of devotion and their overwhelming need for closeness (there is safety in numbers when you're a prey animal, after all), yet each sheep is its own distinct and unique individual.. . . . . #sheep #milksheep #sheepmilk #pasturedlamb #pasturedmeat #grassfed #grassfedmeat #homesteading #yes2meat #nourishedlife #nourishment #shepherdess #sheepherder #nutrientdense #homesteader #smallholders #ethicalmeat #ethicalomnivore #consciouscarnivore #knowyourfood #localmeat #westcorklife #supportsmallfarmers #ruminants #grassconverter

The only thing I got was about 4 jalapineos... However! I've been reading and watching YouTube videos like @roots_and_refuge and I'm going to document the progress of growing through IG.

Even the dogs get #farmfresheggs. . . . When our dogs were pups, up until they were about 2 years old, at each feeding, they would have kibble, rice, and eggs. It was a lot of extra work making sure that there was always cooked rice ready. At the time, we were both working full time, an hour away from home, and had just started farming. . . . So when at 2 years of age, our female stopped eating the egg and rice, it gave me the freedom to just stop. Some times, the "just stop" is difficult or challenged. But there are times when , enough is enough. Our female was egg and riced out. And I was egg and riced out. . . . But raw eggs, raw meat, raw veg is good for dogs. And we dont like to waste. Their diet now; primarily kibble. But every few meals, when we have it available, they will get an egg, some chicken, beef or pork liver, a chicken foot, or another raw organ meat. . . . Its good for them. It makes good use of quality food that we normally dont consume. And, it gives us another way to build sustainability into our farm. . . . #mightyoaksfarm #mightyoaksfarmmaine #rawfooddiet #dogfood #dogsofinstagram #sustainablefarming #homesteadlife #homesteader #farm365 #farming2019 #familyfarm #farmlife #farmher #thereallifeofafarmwife #mainefarm #shapleighmaine #realfoodisgoodfood

Nesting❤️ it means so much more to me now that I’m a mama. I tried to get so much accomplished before Jack arrived. He came two weeks early, in the middle of July. It. Was. HOT🔥! There’s a photo of me on here sitting on my garden bench eating a tomato the day before he came. I was so miserable, and as most of you know, I HATE the summer heat! I was trying to harvest Okra (which let me remind you... I had planted a 100 foot row of🙄😳! First time planting this crop😂) we could have harvested a 5 gallon bucket EVERY DAY last summer, but being soooo pregnant, so sooooo miserable, and soooo hot, Id say a good 90% of the okra I planted went to waste/pigs😩BUT still even with 90% not harvested, we ate a LOT of Okra! Fried, sautéd, roasted, you name it, we ate it😂! If I wasn’t outside in the garden, I was inside prepping Jacks room, folding baby clothes, or shopping online for the endless supplies needed to add this new little housemate of ours (or I was sitting on the couch vegging out because, did i mention I was miserable?😂) and day dreaming about our little man helping me one day in the garden😊 I doubt Rabbits have that many thoughts about their kits that are about to arrive, but sometimes days before, or even minutes before kindling begins, they make a nest for their sweet babies. Some new mamas will have small litters, 4-6, and more mature does can have up to 15+! My record for kits is 14, at which point you take a few and disperse them to other mothers who also have just kindled, in order for them to survive. Does only have 8 teats, so you need to make sure that everyone has good access, as she will only feed them 1-2 times per day! I’ve been raising meat rabbits for about 5 years now, and have raised thousands of bunnies now. Would I consider myself a pro? No!! There’s SOOOOO much to learn about rabbits still, but I’ve got most of the basics down now:) I’m excited to have kits in the next few days, as I have really missed those snuggly puff balls! If you want a breeding trio, let me know! These guys will be ready in about 8-9 weeks to leave their mamas! Then about 10 weeks after that, you can begin breeding, and be harvesting rabbit meat by fall! at Blue Whistler Farm

Okay guys, truth time. I am VERY excited but oh so nervous. See, as a wife, a mom, a caregiver and a homesteader.. I don't take a whole lot of time for myself. Now its not that its not offered, because it is but I feel like I let everyone down when I'm not there and caring for everyone. But I'm tired... I'm tired and not in the best health that I can be in, want to be in or should be in and its effecting the way I care for my loved ones. So an opportunity arouse for me to do something for myself, help me get healthier and help other people get healthy as well.

Here is our swale freshly carved by Agi Cabel and friends including @314blankspace. In the background you can see our recently birthed workshop and kids dedicated geodesic domes and large deposits of soil (and substrate) that will be shaped into a future permaculture designed mixed orchard. If you want your gathering caught on camera from a series of natural views, we encourage you to contact Doug Mullin Photography. LOOK AT HIS WEBSITE to see his work. He has been a photographer for the praxis project in 2018 & 2019, but captures many other gatherings throughout the year. http://ow.ly/ZvKx30mRPYs Photo taken by @an_cat_dugh AKA - Doug Mullin Photography @ http://mullinstreamphotography.ca =============================== The Praxis Project is a catered 3-day gathering with entertainment (music, dance and more), in-depth education (workshops, discussions, and lectures) and permaculture in practice, in rural New Brunswick. AKA - Intimate Annual Transformational Festival. "The Praxis Project" is an annual collaboration by Ditch Rich Nurseries, Earth Education League (EEL), & South Knowlesville Neigbourhood Coop, alongside many partners and sponsors.. =============================== Here is the Praxis Project Website -- http://www.praxisprojectnb.com Here is the Praxis Project Facebook -- http://www.facebook.com/praxisprojectnb Here is the Praxis Project Instagram -- http://www.instagram.com/praxisprojectnewbrunswick Photo taken by @an_cat_dugh AKA - Doug Mullin Photography @ http://mullinstreamphotography.ca Design by: J.

I don't think anything can challenge me as much as you do. * * I have to be so careful with what you see from me, as I'm afraid of what you could become with a bad example. You have no idea how much you make me grow, how much you break down whatever perceptions I had of myself, how many rivers I would fill with the tears that I've had with you in mind. A mover, a shaker, your 4 year old self is inevitably going to make stuff happen around you - Is it going to be coming from the kind, sensitive little person that I see so often, or is it going to be the scary, explosive one that you can be? Will you destroy the walls that try to keep people in, or will you turn to destroying yourself and others? * * People that aren't trying to get better wouldn't be questioning their everything so much, I guess. I shouldn't worry so much. * * Give me the strength you have for me to raise you into the best person you can be.
