Sam & I drove to the farm today and it had me reminiscing & daydreaming about warmer days out there. Tall grass blowing in the wind, rows of colourful flowers, but mostly happy chickens eating alfalfa & laying in the sun. . This long cold snap has been really hard on our farm flock. Actually, it’s more like 60% novice chicken care & 40% weather. And I fully take responsibility for their current struggles. It’s the hazard of not getting to be present everyday or even every week. Our farmhand & friends have been amazing! Don’t get me wrong about that. There are just so many details to hammer out & lessons to learn with every farm animal. That’s why I don’t take lightly the responsibility of each one. But mistakes happen. . Now I’m quickly trying to sort out caring for frostbite in combs and treating an egg bound hen (whom I’ve brought back home to keep a close watch on through it all). . Oh my sweet hens. I let you down some. We do what we can. All the while, wishing for warm sun & frogs for them to chase in the summer. . . . . #farmwife #farmerswife #farmlife #crazychickenlady #happinesschicks #realfarmlife #smallfarmlife #zinnia #flowerfarm #cutflowerfarm #fieldtovase #farmerflorist at Didsbury, Alberta

På vintern är står solen så lågt att det skiner över hela foderbordet. ☀️☀️☀️ . Idag har vi hunnit klippa några får. Vi får ta några i taget, så många vi orkar och hinner med. Sen poof! har det gått några veckor innan man hittar tiden igen. Så vi har en hel skala på ullutväxt i flocken. 🐑 . . . . #visomharfår #minlandsbygd #autumn #sheep #oxforddown #homesteadinglife #smallfarmlife #småbruket #fårgård #sheepfarmer #pasture #bete #höst #självförsörjning #selfsufficient #swedishcountryside #farmlife #countrylife #livetpålandet #gårdsliv #borås #bredared

I love food and I love when others love our food! Here is a beautiful dish using our Tunnel Boned Leg. The description makes me want to move in with these lovely people... ‘Lamb stuffed with rocket and prosciutto, Dukkha and Pomegranate Molasses Rub, on an eggplant and camellia bean mash’. Oh, and then came the comment, ‘We love your lamb.’ We love your cooking! Farming is hard work at any time and right now when we are in the second year of a drought it is especially hard. But when we get beautiful pictures and comments from our beautiful eaters, we are so buoyed! Thank you! #hereathighfield #conservationfarming #farmingwithhabitat #farmingforbiodiversity #ecofarm #ecolife #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #slowfarming #farmyourethics #eatyourethics #eatlocal #eatlocallygrownfood #dorperlamb #slowlamb #weloveourlamb #adelong #tumut #tumutregion #gundagai #snowyvalleys #nsw #newsouthwales #visitnsw #visitriverina #destinationnsw #myriverinamurray at Mount Adrah, New South Wales, Australia

The snow is mostly gone, but the forecast keeps threatening more. I hope we are done with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's always amazing to me that it doesn't faze the calves. They are born during the winter with the softest, thick coats of hair. I never pass up the opportunity when we tattoo the calves to pet them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cattleofig #polledherefords #farmlife #countrysideandfarmlife #smallfarm #livingthecountrylife #modernfarmer #modernhomesteading #smallfarmlife #farmliving #homesteadlife #pnwfarm #mycounrylife #iamcountryside #lifeonthefarm #smallfarmbiglife at Washington

More farm babies! 🥰🐐 Flower gave us her first kids this morning! Completely opposite colors and how beautiful are they!? I just have to say it feels unbelievably good that the farm is growing. ❤️ We have had a long and slow-ish start to our farming endeavors. We’ve worked harder, not smarter for a long time, BUT have learned so much along the way and have grown into better humans because of it. This is our year to stay 100% focused and to truly nurture every part of our land. Remember to feed your dream daily. Input = output.

Today I set up a creep gate for some of the lambs to be able to get out of the shed. Mom's were getting a little nuts being locked inside. Now they can go out and the lambs have a safe corner they can retreat to if they want to. . The weather I looks pretty good with a week of 20ish. . #fiberanimalfriday @jugglingdaisies @taylerbowser . . . . #thewisconsinlife #iamcountryside #raw_country_ #mycountrylife #farmher #iamamodernfarmer #driftlesswisconsin #modernhomesteading #instagramhomesteader #smallfarm #ruralwisconsin #smallfarmlife #countrysideandfarmlife #lifeinthecountry #homesteadliving #farmlifestyle #lifeonthefarm #explore_countryside #trb_rural #country_features #fiberfarm #sheepfarm #cotswoldsheep at Wisconsin

Windy & cold working today 🌫️ ... Sustained winds of 20 MPH and windchills just above freezing. 🌨️ ... But we're more than halfway done with February - March is just TWO weeks away!! 🙌 ... We have a pretty quiet weekend ahead and another hay delivery was delayed due to the ice. ... I'm working more on tracking down a new bottle (cheaper) bottle supplier and just finalized our taxes to be filed today. Yippee!! 😝 ... Do you see your tax refund as a bonus every year? How do you spend it? Shopping? Vacation? Debt? Savings? ... We're usually pretty boring and put it towards our farm's line of credit or put it towards our mortgage for the year. 💸 ... This year we might use ours to purchase a full semi of bottles to guarantee the best price for the year. 🍶 ... Super exciting 🙄 ... It's always this time of the year that we are SO grateful for our CPA. He's a fairy godfather to our farm. 🚜 ... #adulting #fiscallyresponsible #trying #smallbusinesslife #smallfarmlife #taxes #atleastwedontowe #refundsarebetter #CPAforthewin at Two Sparrows Farm

Today in the #summergarden . I still need to get a pic of the messiness. Too many zucchini and eggplant that I give lots away and still need to pickle some, tomatoes, capsicum, apples, chillies, Queensland Blue and Wee B Little pumpkins. I don't always get to the zucchini in time and they end up bigger than our watermelons 😕. And also picked some wild passionfruit we found growing in the paddock last week! Yum! I love seeing everyones beautiful patches and have some plans in place for some refurbishing to start here I hope too. #vegetablegardens #organicgardeing #pesticidefree #homecooking #smallfarmlife #ourpatch

We woke up to a very unexpected Valentines Day surprise. We adopted our sweet donkeys about nine months ago and unknown to us (and the previous owners) she was pregnant! We had no idea! But seriously, aaaalllll my baby animal dreams are in full swing. The Lord is good. Rosalina, please forgive me for all the times I called you fat. If I could give you a massage, vacuum your floors, and bring you dinner and dark chocolate, I would. #babyanimalobsession #donkeysofig #Arizona #smallfarmlife

Mostly the sheep have one trail to hay, shed, water, and feed. No one wants to step off the trail. In fact they just stand there single file waiting...Aphrodite is brave and ventured off the trail, not sure why--maybe just to take the road less travelled. . . . #thewisconsinlife #iamcountryside #raw_country_ #mycountrylife #farmher #iamamodernfarmer #driftlesswisconsin #modernhomesteading #instagramhomesteader #smallfarm #ruralwisconsin #smallfarmlife #countrysideandfarmlife #lifeinthecountry #homesteadliving #farmlifestyle #lifeonthefarm #explore_countryside #trb_rural #country_features #fiberfarm #sheepfarm #cotswoldsheep at Hollandale, Wisconsin

My little Bucky wasn't feeling well last week, so we had an emergency vet visit to find out he most likely had a case of pneumonia. He got treated and had his last antibiotic treatment this week. I am so thankful for all the helpful advice I received and am so happy to report he is doing SO much better!! I wanted to share pictures of his adventures inside for the night (he is not a bottle baby - so was a little confused 🤣) but was super calm and got along great with the other animals. . . . #goat #goatsofinstagram #nigeriandwarf #nigeriandwarfgoats #minigoat #babygoatsofinstagram #babygoats #minifarm #smallfarmlife #smallfarm #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarmer #sick #notfeelingwell #poorbaby #spoiled #spoiledpets #adorablepets #adorableanimals #farmanimals #love #adorable #cutegoat #cutepets #bucky #myloves #loved #lovemyfarm #lovemypet at Cookeville, Tennessee

One mighty River Red Gum. Two scars and a possible Ring. Evidence that we live on Wiradjuri Land. This tree stands proudly on the banks of the Yaven near a little clearing- a great spot to camp. David found this tree just a couple of weeks ago and today I had a chance to see it. #hereathighfield #conservationfarming #farmingwithhabitat #farmingforbiodiversity #ecofarm #ecolife #nature #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #slowfarming #farmyourethics #adelong #tumut #tumutregion #gundagai #snowyvalleys #nsw #newsouthwales #visitnsw #visitriverina #myriverinamurray at Mount Adrah, New South Wales, Australia

*SOUND ON for the cutest noises in the world * 😍🐷 Well, we officially have one named! This little girl has been dubbed “Smidge”. The name just naturally presented itself as I started calling her that considering she is a “smidgen” the size of the others. She quacks like a duck 🦆😍 Yes, her leg got caught up in the dog kennel when she was going out but she did not get hurt. After I saw this as a potential issue I crushed the wire down removing any gaps so no feet or legs can get stuck again 👍🏻 #smidgethepig #pigletsofinstagram #piglets #babypigs #pigsofinsta #piglife #modernhomesteading #iamamodernfarmer #instagramhomesteaders #smallfarmlife #berkshirepigs

On Highfield there is a special little place where Callitris Trees grow. These are Native Pine Trees and are as tough as nuts! Since the wild cattle were removed, hundreds of new baby Callitris Pines have sprouted and grown. Natural regeneration in our conservation area. #hereathighfield #conservationfarming #farmingwithhabitat #farmingforbiodiversity #ecofarm #ecolife #nature #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #slowfarming #farmyourethics #eatyourethics #eatlocal #eatlocallygrownfood #trees #bushretreat #adelong #tumut #tumutregion #gundagai #snowyvalleys #nsw #newsouthwales #visitnsw #visitriverina #destinationnsw #myriverinamurray at Mount Adrah, New South Wales, Australia

The Kurrajong Twins on a dusty day. We are lucky to have both of them still. A couple of years ago during a massive storm one of the trees was struck by lightening. The hit made a long fissure on one side of the tree and part of the strike was powerful enough to go right thru the tree to the other side if it’s copious girth. #hereathighfield #conservationfarming #farmingwithhabitat #farmingforbiodiversity #ecofarm #ecolife #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #slowfarming #farmyourethics #eatyourethics #bushretreat #trees #eatlocal #eatlocallygrownfood #adelong #tumut #tumutregion #gundagai #snowyvalleys #nsw #newsouthwales #visitnsw #visitriverina #destinationnsw #myriverinamurray at Mount Adrah, New South Wales, Australia
