Our Homestead

My homestead is a work in progress, but it brings me so much joy.

Check back in the near future for more!


One of the things that brings me a lot of joy is making things homemade. My list has grown shorter since I started working, but it tends to be up and down. There are several things on this list that I always make and some that I don’t make as often. There are many recipes on the “Recipes” page. This is going to grow a lot over the next few months as I load many of the recipes that I haven’t included yet.

  • Sourdough
  • Greek honey vanilla yogurt
  • Granola
  • Whole wheat bread using freshly ground flour 
  • Most dinners (see the recipes page for a lot of my recipes- I’m going to be adding many more this summer)
  • Muffins, pancakes, waffles
  • Lara bars
  • Stove top popcorn
  • Tortillas
  • Salsa 
  • Tomato sauce
  • Elderberry syrup and gummies
  • Soy candles with essential oils
  • Some cleaners (I do prefer a few store bought natural cleaners)
  • Brined and roasted nuts and seeds
  • Desserts

Backyard Chickens

The breeds we have are:

  • Easter-egger
  • White Plymouth Rock
  • White Leghorn
  • Cochin

My Raised Beds
