Jubilee and Celebrity 🍅. I love the Jubilee!  It is an heirloom variety that not only has a fabulous flavor, it brings a lot of bright color to food creations.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks~John Muir  Autumns call has come upon the farm and the chickens have slowed there production. The rains have brought abundant green to the pastures that will nourish the animals farther into this season than it would have without it. The garden, stripped of its abundant summer glory, waits for the emergence of its slow food til it's tucked away to rest and rejuvenate til next year. The cycles of the farm continue to amaze me.#musings -

An entirely homegrown dinner 🌿
.
-homegrown duck roasted with a homemade Italian plum sauce
-fresh from the garden five minutes prior 'Piracicaba' broccoli that just won't quit
-mixed variety mashed potatoes we harvested earlier in the season
.
.
Feels amazing not only to eat the world's most delicious food- but to know that you are entirely responsible for it from start to finish!

Let’s talk eggs this morning!
•
Did you know that the yolk color is based solely on what the hen’s diet consists of?  It’s all dependent on the amount of carotenoids in the diet. Chicken feeds have all kinds of things in them.  They even have added marigold extract to help enhance the color of the yolks. But this is why actually knowing your farmer is hugely important.  The deep color of our yolks don’t come from extracts, it comes from the foods rich in carotenoids that we feed our hens. Bell peppers, tomatoes, plums, pumpkins, carrots and tons of kale and other  fresh greens.  No faking it here!  But with that being said, even yellow hued egg yolks are still healthy!  Just less carotenoids in the diet!
•
Another way to tell the freshness and health of a hens eggs is by the whites. Cloudy, thick whites that stick close to the yolk are proof of happy, healthy, hens and super fresh eggs. See how the whites form a little shelf around the yolk?  That’s what you want from your eggs!
•
Swipe to see what a store bought egg looks like in the pan and the difference!

The bittersweet time has come for our broiler flock. AD Yes, we raise meat birds in the city! Raising them is a profound experience and something that has changed how we eat forever. 
We have spoiled these beautiful creatures for months, giving them room to forage and the best nutrition with @scratchandpeck. Not to mention this little chicken whisperer has given a hug or twenty to these birds as they explore the yard.

The topic of #meatbirds is one that makes people uneasy but it’s been an adventure and one worthy of discussion. 
We have a post up today that breaks down the details of raising broilers... check it out, link in profile!

Spring Meat Chickens Week 5 Update: Oh boy, are they growing fast! They've doubled in weight since last week, now weighing in at an average 148g, and are smashing food and bedding. As hoped, the cross I've created means they're feathering up quick, and should be on pasture in two weeks. The costs are going up exponentially; we're up to $17.87 in total, or $4.46 per birf

I want to see them driving a tractor on our farm. I want to see them riding horses and quads all over our property. I want to see them working hard and taking care of their animals.
.
I want wide open spaces. Room to explore. Neighbors only in the far distance. I want to raise and grow most of our food. A big farmhouse for family and friends to gather in.
.
That’s my big dream. That’s why I’m working this side business. You might all just think I’m crazy but I’m going for it! I want to give my kids everything (within reason of course) ♥️ and to do that I have to stretch and grow and push myself to get over my fears and just do it anyways.

Chicks first night out of the brooder, they still get the heat lamp, it’s a little cool at night. #muddybootshomestead #raiseyourownfood #pasturedpoultry #lifeonthehomestead
It's a little late for #MeetMyGoatMonday with @the_young_homestead and @chelleninmt, but I finally got in from the garden and am waiting for dinner to cook. I pulled some of our corn stalks today, these guys were quite happy to help me get rid of them. 😁

Chickies are 9 weeks old and still need Mama Hen to stand guard and tell them when to bathe, what to eat, and when to go to bed. They occasionally almost make a real cluck here or there but they still mostly peep like little flufflings. I especially love their feather coloring and their bright yellow feet!! .

The one on the left is a ranger I kept out a a breeder and is fed layer feed. The one on the right is a ranger and fed grower feed. The difference is barely noticeable here, but the meat bird has grown significantly in a couple days while the breeder bird is slowing up. I will try to get a picture in another week of both side by side on the ground. Both of these are hens. The roosters are already larger.

If you saw my stories, you saw that I had a pretty crappy set up for the CornishCross. Well, it works fine for sunny days and for a day or two of rain. But when you are supposed to be getting rain all week long, I had to do something different. I divided the chicken tractor/green house to keep them dry. We are too close to butcher date to loose these birds now.  Also, I need a better rain jacket, this one was just for looks. #itstoppedworking Also, not pictures are the several others that with stood the rain to get these chickens to a dryer place. #dontaccusemeofnotcaringaboutmychickens #ilovemychickens #ilovetherain #raiseyourownfood  #cornishcross #surburbanhomestead #iamamodernfarmer #sustainablity #backyardpoultry

My husband and I were chatting yesterday about how weird it is to hear a good rain shower or thunderstorm. It’s been a long while since it’s rained well in our area.
.
The entire weekend has been cooler, wetter, and calmer than several weekends before it. I’m soaking it all in with hot coffee and day dreaming of the future.
.
Now I bet you’re wondering what does this caption have to do with this photo. Am I right?
.
Well, this is one of the cows on Annemarie’s farm (@sullifarmandkitchen). Each time I come across it, I think about how working hard towards my dreams will pay off. Seeing someone so determined to go after what they want in life is motivating me to keep pushing forward, and you should too!
.
Don’t let anything hold you back from turning your dreams into reality! You’re worth the effort!

Introduced the dairies to the rest of the goat/cattle herd today. 😬🐐🐂🤗
.
They have an area that’s 50% bigger than the size paddock we give them on a normal day and we can finally provide some supervision as they get acclimated to each other.
.
The hierarchy is so interesting! Herd Queen Lemon was the first to approach, followed by her deputy, Cupcake. It’s like they wouldn’t even dream of sending any other representative of the herd to check out the newbies out besides those two. I’m fascinated by those herd dynamics. 🤔

If you ever want to see an ALMOST 60 year old, chase and wrangle piglets and not spill a drop of beer while doing it, come pay a visit to my husband. He can teach you the tricks of how to be redneck AF. 😂 can’t live with him, can’t live without him.

Roasted butternut squash ravioli was the perfect supper to celebrate the first day of fall.  I grew my best ever butternut squash this year and they’ve been curing for about a month so flavor is perfect and the color bright.  My new pullets have started laying too so fresh eggs for fresh pasta.  Perfection.

15 piglets wrangled via horse back and on foot. We are bloody, dirty and my god, we stink.
•
We sat down together to watch the piglets in their new pen and Ellie came down and said, “Oh!  Look at you two sitting together like that!  I need to take a pictcha!” Yes girl, you do!
•
I was ready to kill James this morning, but I sure am glad I didn’t. Because I needed all the help I could get chasing and wrangling those hogs! 😂

Saw these couple Perdue chicken "farms" yesterday (have also seen Case farms in the area too), and as #foodinc and many other articles exhibit, it's a pretty true reality. It makes me sick! Why do they have NO light coming in? How many chickens are crammed in that space? What kind of life is that for a living creature...living in dark, crammed, and unhealthy environment? And, no trespassing....worried about the animals getting sick...yeah right! If you're doing no wrong and treating the chickens humanely, then why such secrecy? And we put these things in our body! 🤔😣🤕

Yesterday's ebony egg, and two from today for a comparison on color 🦆
.
That lighter gray is what our particular Cayuga girl laid today! The 'bloom' fades sometimes gradually, sometimes all at once, depending on the frequency that they lay. Once they've laid eggs daily for about a week, the color is usually a very light & dusty, dirty gray-white.
.
The white is from one of the other ladies, likely a Khaki Campbell, to show the typical duck egg color.
.
.
What do you think- convinced on Cayugas for your flock? We do love our ladies around here!

Good morning from Lexa! Piggies are out free ranging, but they love us, so that means hanging out in the yard with us. The littles are practicing the archery skills they learned at Forest (home)school yesterday. I'm sipping coffee in the shade and I think it's a pretty perfect morning.

Our laying hens have over 1/4 of an acre to free range on but that doesn’t stop them from being naughty sometimes and jumping over the 8 foot fence.  The easiest way to deter them is to throw them off balance by trimming their feathers on one side.  We keep our hens partly contained to prevent them from going in the gardens. So this is an effective and pain free way to keep them in their pen and out of our gardens!

Its official. All four of our chickens are laying! Sometimes even double yolks (we discovered that by crowing - pun intended - how they were finally laying regular sized eggs, only to crack them open and realize they were just doubles). And I have to admit I am most excited that we have different colors for each bird. Still not sure who lays what color (though the kids say they know) but our breakfasts are MADE, man. Now they can finally start to earn their keep...

Over the past year, we started raising rabbits. I now cook with rabbit a couple times a week. I usually just swap it out for chicken or pork in my favorite recipes. Last night I made a “beef with broccoli” type stir fry but used rabbit instead. 
The other amazing thing with rabbit is how productive they are. Rabbits can produce 6 pounds of meat on the same feed and water that a cow will produce 1 pound of meat. 
Rabbit meat is:
✅ One of the easiest digestible forms of meats ✅Contains the least amount of fat and cholesterol of all meats
✅Almost cholesterol free
✅Delicious, mild tasting, and extremely versatile .

So I'm a homesteader & LOVE it! We haven't fulfilled all our homestead dreams yet but will when the time us right. You often hear people say homesteading is "getting back to a simpler life". Whuch migjt make u think its easier, to be honest its anything but easier.
🐔
Its much easier to go buy a loaf of bread then make it from scratch (& I still totally go buy it sometimes), its much easier to hit the farners market or grocery for fresh eggs & produce. However when you raise & grow your own food man its fun! Its fun to see your kids get excited about feeding chickens & planting seeds, gatgering eggs & harvesting food. While it might not always be simple, it sure is a good way to live & a GREAT way to raise kids!

This year we really learned a lot about what worked and what didn’t in the summer garden. We’re so looking forward to expanding on that knowledge and being more successful in the garden as each season passes.

I was looking through Instagram the other night and stumbled across a really pretty flower farm account that caught my eye.

Long story short, Lynsey from @muddyacresflowerfarm is my neighbor! We have a lot in common and I’m so happy to have found her! 
I’m going to use her tag #bloomsigrew to show off some of my sunflowers. Everyone, go check out her flowers, give her a follow and use her hashtag to show off some of the blooms in your garden!

Everyone loves🌻🌸

The ping pong balls are three weeks old and are getting their first experience on grass. They have begun to escape their brooder and and are pooping all over the garage. They will go into a, very spacious, chicken tractor this weekend and will be on grass full time as they grow out. #backyardchickens #cornishx #raiseyourownfood

Che Guevara and troops assessing storm damage and coaxing terrified pigs to the trough. Day two without electricity over here. Anyone else? We’re embracing some old fashioned farm living and trying not to cry over sour milk.

It was kinda a drizzly day yesterday but mostly cleared off so we could sit outside and enjoy our supper.  About the time we were finished we were blessed with the beautiful rainbow that is sadly captured through my iPhone camera.  It was super brilliant and we could see the whole rainbow 🌈. Supper, well what is not to love about this pizza!  A homemade crust with homemade basil pesto for the sauce followed by a light sprinkling of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, followed by homegrown zucchini ribbons, tomatoes, garlic and thyme.  Artichoke hearts round out this yummy pizza.  The recipe, which I modified a little is from @halfbakedharvest #eatoutside #eatoutsideoften #creatingextraordinarymomentsdoingordinarythings

It’s pretty much like we added more children to the family #crazychickenlady. Just look at these sisters free-rangin’ though! ❤️

I’m AMAZED at the amount of people who tell me they want backyard chickens! I think there should be a movement for the HOA’s to allow chickens! What say you? Are you dreaming of chickens??

Don't mind the dirt, fresh off the nest! Still waiting on 10 other new layers to start. When they do, we'll have even more of an assortment! 🌈

'Piracicaba' broccoli, I could sing praises to you all year long 🌿
.
This short row, buffered by nasturtiums and calendula on one face, and collards on the other, has been one of our greatest garden successes this year. It has produced seemingly endless florets, since early June. It has been hardly bothered by any pests or disease, despite a constant presence of cabbage moths.
.
And the flavor? I could sing about it for days. Nutty & fresh, with a depth of earthiness I can't quite describe. You haven't tasted anything like the wonders of homegrown broccoli!

We’ve picked our 4 breeding rangers! I am 99.9% sure we’ve picked pullets (hens). I have raised enough chicks to be able to tell the difference at this stage. I have set up this cage next to the chicken run so the big hens get use to them. I’ll introduce them in a couple days.

It was late.  I was out finishing updates to the electric fence grounding and also installing a switch for the lowest line (in case of heavy weed interference, like now) when I heard a loud crash... .
.

The turkeys are getting big fast.  And they are little trouble makers.  This one knocked over the bay sink and decided to claim it.  I will be so happy to get them outside with the ducks and geese and maybe not have such a mess in the barn and old milk room anymore. .
.

The plan is to deep clean tonight.  It will be worth it, but oh man, it's going to suck. 😬 .

Someone is back at it already. 🙄 .

Not sure if it's Mama or Snowball, but I am not sure if I should let them sit this late in the year.  They are both proven mothers, at least, and the point was to have a regular supply of ducks. .

I’m so thankful that I was born in the southwest, because otherwise I may not have ever met salsa verde!  Roasted Salsa Verde!  I love this stuff!  I love using it to make Chile verde, stuffed chilies, eat it with tortilla chips, on eggs or just eat it right out of the jar 😂. There isn’t a way that it’s not delicious.  Roasting all the veggies is the most time consuming part of this job but well worth it because I like the extra roasted flavor blast it brings to the salsa.  My tomatillos were small this year and my green chilies big but that’s just how it goes in the garden some years.

I love using it to make Chile verde, stuffed chilies, eat it with tortilla chips, on eggs or just eat it right out of the jar 😂. There isn’t a way that it’s not delicious. Roasting all the veggies is the most time consuming part of this job but well worth it because I like the extra roasted flavor blast it brings to the salsa. My tomatillos were small this year and my green chilies big but that’s just how it goes in the garden some years.
When’s Thanksgiving?✨✨✨Because these turkeys are huge, and they step on my toes, and it hurts! 
Some of our neighbors have grown curious and have been asking if any of them are available for the holidays. 
So it looks like next year we will need to add more Premier1 electric poultry netting for a large batch of heritage turkeys! 
Raising your own holiday turkey is a must for homesteaders! The flavor of these birds is incredible, best turkey around. 
And the turkey burgers🤤

Yolky goodness!
.
Happy that my girls’ yolks have got a more orangey hue again. This summer they lightened up and we learned that wheat and sunflower can have a disproportionate effect of lightening yolks, even when the birds are on pasture eating as much green matter and insects as their hearts’ desire!
.
We changed up the feed formula and now their yolks are once again more reflective of how we raise them: plenty of space and room to dustbathe and take short flights and moved to fresh pasture for the best eats weekly!
.
Put these beauts (actually from pullets that just started to lay!) on top of leftover brown rice, plus sautéed zucchini, squash and Japanese spinach mustard greens... all sautéed in @mauthesprogressmilkbarn incredible butter.

I'm thinking, someone has earned the right to stay! The rooster, not my husband 😉 husband already gets to stay 😂
.
We hatched a group of 'barnyard mixes' from our flock this spring, the girls of which will re-join the flock, and the boys will march off to freezer camp before long. Except, it seems, this handsome fella!
.
.
Why him? Well, he's got a good stature. Large size, good meat ratio. Great color. Excellent temperament. Hasn't made a sound, or even a dance toward the ladies. He is amiable with all other roosters, poultry (ducks, geese, turkeys), and us!
.
I'm also just fascinated by his cross- My best guess is our silver laced Wyandotte hen x Heritage Rhode Island Red rooster, with largely dominant SLW traits?

We got some dairy goats yesterday! 🙌🙌
.
These beauties are Saanen and Oberhasli crosses, so bigger girls who can hang with our meat goat herd. We bought two nannies each with fairly big female kids who are still nursing, so that eases the milking burden as we figure things out. Stay tuned!

There’s an undeniable connection to the earth that you feel as a farmer.  A lot of times I believe it’s what gets us out of bed when we are overworked and exhausted. It’s knowing that the Earth has brought us a new day and as farmers we have to take the opportunity and run with it.  If the sun can rise and start again, so must we.

With the cooling down of the weather, radishes emerge once again with the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

When you’re trying to take an #eggbasket picture and the kitty photobombs it, and it actually works 👌🏻 #booyeah
