157-Gardening Begins in January

Did you know the gardening season begins in January, even when it is snowing?

It does here at Five Feline Farm!

This episode is chock full of what we have accomplished in the past week. We are recording video of each step and will release that in Five Feline Farm School within a couple of weeks. If you are not already on the list to get course related information in your inbox, you can sign up here. You can also participate in our very brief survey to let us know the types of information you are most interested in. (Don’t worry, we have your answers recorded if you have already completed the survey.)

We also discuss the new potting shed we have on order. One question we answer in this conversation is how we made the decision to order a pre-made one instead of building our own.

You will hear us referencing Larry at Thompson’s Sales in Mattoon, IL. If you are in need of a portable building and within driving distance, please check him out.

One last thing–if you have somehow stumbled on this podcast episode and are not already on our email list, we have a free downloadable ebook for you: Wisdom From the Bees. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for allowing us into your inbox.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

155-2021 Projects

Hello and welcome to our first podcast of 2021.

Here at Five Feline Farm, we are excited about the possibilities this year. We have a lot of plans, ideas, goals and projects. Some of these you will see or hear about very soon and others will take longer to execute.

If you have questions for us or suggestions, please drop us an email or contact us through social media. We love to hear from you!

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

154-2020 In Review

What a year!

2020 presented challenges and victories to Five Feline Farm. We adjusted hours, locations, products, procedures and days of the week. Just when we thought we had a plan, something changed and we changed too.

A huge shout out to all of our customers, friends, family and fans who persevered right along with us. We appreciate each of you more than you know.

In this episode, we cover quarter by quarter the growth of our business. We also note a couple of links for you. First is the link to Julia’s Medium posts. Second is the segment on Ciliving by Erin Valle featuring Five Feline Farm.

Over the next couple of months, our onsite store will be closed, although you can still order on line. We will be using this time to complete some overdue projects, build new things for the farm (including digital products) and get some much needed rest. The podcast will continue weekly as will our social media posts.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

P.S. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about new plans and offers.

153-We Are Blessed

This week is a huge shout out to all of our friends, fans, supporters and customers.

Each of you have contributed to our best December ever here at Five Feline Farm. We are exceptionally grateful for all of you.

We also had the privilege of appearing in a spot on CiLiving on December 17, 2020. Erin Valle interviewed us, filmed interesting things, and put together an amazing story about our life here on the Farm. You can see the link here if you missed it: CiLiving Story.

For the next couple of months, we will be closed on site, but we are not going away. You will still hear from us weekly on this podcast, and our online store is always open for nonfood products. In January and February, we will be working on a few projects around the house and farm as well as developing new ideas.

Thank you everyone and Happy Holidays.

Donna, Julia and the Felines
