When I hear people talk about how roosters wake them up in the morning, I think, ‘who wouldn’t want their loved ones to sing them awake every day?’ Sweet Charlie, I appreciate your effort and dedication, there’s nothing I’d rather wake up to. 💕🎶

We moved the bucks into their own area as the girls near their delivery dates. As hormones get really wild the boys can misconstrue labor for heat and the girls just don’t need to be worrying about anything but their own bodies.
The boys are not impressed with their “isolation” and would very much like to file a formal complaint.
I told them to take it up with the peacocks.
Bone broth or stock was a way our ancestors made use of every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments that you can’t eat directly can be boiled and then simmered over a period of days. This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health.
🍲 Bone broths contains minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others, as well as glucosamine and chondroitin, the compounds often sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain.
🥘 Bone broth is fantastic for digestion, and studies have shown that the amino acids (protein) produced when making bone broth reduces inflammation in the respiratory system, effectively helping colds and flu.

#buylocal heading down this dirt road driveway to pick up some #freerange#chicken#eggs . Truth is risking my life to get eggs 🥚 is fun. Reminds me of when my buddies and I used to #offroading in the one guys #Mini . lol If it got stuck in a tractor rut, we would all hop out and lift the car out and continue on our merry way.
Ever just feel PUZZLED when it comes to what to put on your plate and where your sources should come from?
🥚 🥓 🍅
The food industry can be so confusing at times with all these key words we see like organic , free range, pasture raised, etc.
🥚 🥓 🍅
It’s good to know where your food is coming from and what it went through before it gets to your plate.
🥚 🥓 🍅
Don’t let this get you frustrated or overwhelmed. Below are some definitions of these words we see daily on our labels:
🥚 🥓 🍅 •free range: kept in natural conditions with freedom of movement •cage free: free from a cage but might have still been in a building and not free to roam just anywhere •pasture raised: the animal gets a significant amount of their nutrition from pastures. •grass fed: the animal is fed grass from the pasture and not from grain •organic: foods produced from the method of organic farming so no pesticides or chemicals used.
These are just a few that I like to try to get when choosing my foods. My tip just try to get as many of these words on foods you are buying but don’t let it stress you out.
We had five eggs today! I expected that over winter I would need to buy eggs but I haven't had to buy a single one which is just brilliant. We now have a fridge full so I feel some cakes coming on and these ones are headed to a friend. This was always the plan- to go some way towards self sufficiency and have some left to sell/gift and I've achieved it this year. This requires a celebratory gin and a happy dance 🍸💃 🥚
Grass has been the principal source of food for cattle and sheep for centuries. However the economies of industrial production have meat large scale farmers grow and finish their animals faster which can only really be done through introducing high-energy livestock feed. Basically, cereals and soybean. If you think about it, slow-growing an animal naturally by only feeding them grasses and herbs without bulking them up with grains and allowing them to live outdoors, can only be a good thing for the animals, the environment and for us.

So much has been written about the health and environmental benefits of sustainable food production. Farming is as old as the hills but the way in which our food and meat has been produced changed dramatically with the advent of mechanised, industrial farming on a large scale in the nineteenth century. Industrialised food production has brought adverse consequences to our environment and wildlife. Put simply, eating 100% grass fed, outdoor reared, free range meat and game is better for us, the animals and helps support a more bio diverse natural ecology
Seeing the delicate nature of our planet in all its glory we know how important it is to protect the natural environment that the small family run farms that we work with here and the valuable contribution they make to the biodiversity of the countryside continues. Farming is as old as the beautiful hills around us and small farms where animals are reared naturally outdoors grazing on a diet of grasses, wild flowers and clovers and live in harmony with their surrounding environment
The garden in winter and the chickens making the most of their extended winter range. What a time they had yesterday when we were digging up some Jerusalem artichokes and oca and chooks diving in after every worm as it turned up.
