White Pumpkin Pie

Every year we go to a local pumpkin patch up the road from our house. Each year, this sweet old man tells us about his pumpkins. Tells us about how the deer ate half of them again this year. He tells about the little pumpkins, the big pumpkins, the giant pumpkins, the gourds, the weather….but the best part? He tells…

The Homestead Dog | Meet Delilah

I’ve always wanted a livestock guardian dog, but it also needed to be an incredible family dog that could be with us at all times. Unheard of, right? Everything I have read has continuously said LGDs must remain with the herd at all times. I thought a livestock guardian was outside of our near future, because honestly, we only live…

He Grew Up Today…

He grew up today…. He pulled on his boots and walked right through my front door. He grew up today… He rarely says “mama” anymore—it’s mostly just “mom”. Unless he’s sick, sad, or really wants something. He grew up today… Maybe not in terms of years, or of adulthood. But today when he stepped through that front door all on…

What you’re about to read are raw emotions from a night of pain, grief, tears, and heartache. These are some of the emotions that a woman struggling with infertility goes through.

Our Holistic Remedies Cabinet | Essential Oils and Herbs

I often say the very beginning of our homesteading journey happened when I began diving more and more into herbal remedies. Herbs have always been my passion along this journey, and more recently, I’ve added essential oils (EOs). While herbs will always be my first go-to, because they are in their most natural form, EOs are a close second, or…

What is a Homestead and Homesteader? | And the unnecessary title wars

I was sitting with my grandmother a few weeks back, and because of the simple fact that we own small livestock, she is always asking how the chickens are…any new rabbit babies…how about the bear, is he back? I always chuckle, because it seems to be the first thing she brings up when I walk through the door. She’ll proceed…

Homemade Chicken Tacos and Tortillas

This past week, I decided, very off the whim, to make some chicken tacos completely from scratch. In the below video, you’ll see the very quick process, and below that, you’ll find the…

How To Properly Use and Season Cast Iron

I believe my mom cooked more with cast iron than my grandma ever did. At least, in my lifetime. Growing up, I didn’t really understand that cast iron needed tender, loving care. It’s like a living and breathing extension of your kitchen. One that I now thoroughly enjoy as an adult in my very own kitchen. But keeping cast iron…

Rabbit Care Basics for the Beginner

So you want to start your homestead rabbit journey, and you’re not sure where to begin. What do they eat? How much do they eat? What happens if they get sick? How do they live? While these things can all be elaborated on extensively, I’ll try to sum it up for you in a condensed version. When you’re done here—or…

Artisan Sourdough Bread and Starter

One of my favorite things to indulge in is bread. Though I can’t indulge often—because large amounts of gluten simply don’t agree with me—I have found that Sourdough bread is less harsh on my body. Because of the fermented yeasty goodness, sourdough can be a great bread alternative for those with gluten sensitive digestive systems. Not only that, it’s simply…

Canning Peaches With Raw Honey

Canning is hard work, people—let me tell you. I do a little canning each year, but nothing like what my great Aunt used to do. When I think of a garden and canning, I automatically remember Summertime at Great Aunt Vergie’s house. That woman, she could can. Between her and my Great Uncle Al (who was married to my Great…
