Food is the best when it is fresh. Don’t you agree?
Fresh ingredients is what my family and I strive to produce on our growing farmstead.
My family loves eating the things we produce on the farm! Everything tastes so yummy and delicious.
Here’s what we grow to eat on our farmstead:
My love for raising livestock and crops started at a very early age. I’ve literally raised cattle since I learned to walk. My first calf was a Charolais named “Buddy.” I grew up helping my parents feed and care for the cattle on their small farm.
I also had a huge garden at home. With the help of my parents and siblings, I learned to grow all sorts of veggies. Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Carrots, Cucumbers, Green Beans, Peas, Potatoes, etc. My grandmother also had a huge patch of strawberries, rhubarb, melons, and berries. You could say I was tutored with several green thumbs.
So, now that I have my own farm and my own family, of course I would have cattle and a garden! Everything else has been full of new adventures and lessons learned. You can find those lessons by clicking HERE.
Everything we raise on our farm requires time, nutrients met, and plenty of care and love. If we as farmers did not love and do everything it takes to raise a product, we would not do it.
We support local growers and farmers that grow other produce items we don’t. We experience other people’s farms around the area and pick their apples, blackberries, peaches, and blueberries.
Supporting these local growers not only helps them to keep their business sustainable and growing. It also provides us with fresh produce that we don’t grow ourselves.
I also love the networking involved with supporting these backyard businesses.
I share my recipes featuring my farm fresh ingredients:
But most of all, fresh is best. There’s no denying that simple fact.
I hope you enjoy the fresh country eats I enjoy sharing with you!
