Hello from Five Feline Farm.
And there are the humans……..
We added a family member in 2016: Abby.
And another in 2017: Tiger Rooney.
And yet another in 2018: Honey Bee.
Both Donna and Julia retired in 2019 to devote full time effort to the farm. The felines mostly supervise. Donna does the gardening and Julia does the cooking. We share the beekeeping.
What is a modern homestead you ask? This small farm serves as an outlet for our creativity and interests. But it is more than that. It is where we live and strive to find a middle ground between learning the skill sets of our ancestors and taking advantage of modern conveniences.
Our focus is on eating well, living well and sharing how we do this with others.
We produce a few gallons of honey per season. We developed other products from the hive, such as lip and skin balms. Each year we expand the number of colonies as we can’t keep up with the demand for local honey.
Each year we also expand the gardens. Every new season finds us trying new crops, varieties and techniques to determine what works best. The goal is to grow and preserve as much of our own food as possible, with the exception of meat. Although we remain carnivores on a limited basis, we just can’t quite get into butchering.
We are now offering many of our farm produced products at our Farm Fresh Mercantile, our on-line store and through the summer months at local Farmer’s Markets and Festivals.
So Five Feline Farm has become our way of life. Always experimenting with new things and sharing what we learn with you through the blog Mews From The Farm.
When you subscribe to Five Feline Farm you can expect blog posts and podcasts delivered to your inbox. And as a thank you gift, you’ll receive a free ebook Wisdom From The Honeybees. It’s our take on what humans can learn from honeybees.
