139-Old Time Skills Are In Vogue Again

This year, 2020 has been like no other.

We have operated with a mindset of modern homesteading for a number of years. For us, modern homesteading means to practice as many of the skills of our ancestors as possible while still using modern conveniences.

For example, even though most of the bread we eat is made right here at home, often it is a bread machine doing the work.

Through this pandemic, others are beginning to embrace these same skills. We support their efforts. Their new skills however are impacting our practice of self-sufficiency. There have been waves of flour shortages, yeast shortages, and now it is canning lids and freezer bags.

Now we are reaching into our skill of flexibility and finding work arounds.

In this episode you will also hear us discuss the benefits of our Gert’s Garden Turmeric balm. This is a story of personal experience with this product. If you would like to get your own, you can order online or request when you visit the farm on Fridays.

138-Our Latest Accomplishments

Even when we don’t think we are making progress, when we look back on the week, we realize there are many things we actually accomplished.

From tomatoes, to carrots, to sweet corn, we continue to harvest and process food. Any excess is available at the farmstand in the corn crib. We will be open September 11 and September 18, 2020 from 10:00 to 2:00. Check out the online Mercantile to pre-order scones.

Mark your calendars for October 10, 2020 for our 3rd annual Fall Festival at the Farm. The Luna Halos will play, we will have additional vendors and a safe, socially distanced experience.

Until next time….

See ya,
