#26: Seven Rules for Slow & Steady Progress While Negotiating the Learning Curve of Homesteading.

I feel for them, because when we first moved into our farm, I was in the same space. Between getting my home set up and wanting to do ALL THE THINGS and just being so pumped for owning my first farm, I felt like a spinning top. And not in a good way.  Today I'm sharing my Seven Rules for keeping your sanity and making steady progress on your farmstead.

#25: How CSAs Can Outcompete Grocery Stores when the Customer Experience is Put First.

My family buys a CSA share every year, even though we grow a LOT of produce, meat, dairy and eggs each year.  So let’s have that conversation because I clearly see both sides. Full of tips and info for producers and customers alike. Let's get growing.
