    May Updates On The Farm

    Pendleton Family Farm May 25, 2021

    Our first pastured fenced, adding more chickens, and anxiously awaiting our first eggs…May updates on the farm.  I’m not gonna lie, it’s getting harder and harder to blog frequently. There is something to always do on the farm and squeezing time in to write (even though it’s one of my favorite things) is difficult. Just this morning as I was filling up waters for all the animals, I kept thinking…

    Pendleton Family Farm April 9, 2021

    Giggling as I type this, but boy have things changed. I’ve never really been a girly girly per se, but I never thought I’d ask for a garden cart for my birthday either lol. Yep, that’s what I asked for my birthday when my mom asked what I wanted. It got me thinking, I can not be the only one who now loves anything farm related as gifts. Mother’s Day Farm…

One, we will use this as long as…

In a nut shell, it’s putting focus on regenerating the soil. It’s pulling carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the ground. Regeneration practices include no-tilling,…
