Farming stories and skills from our small farm, gardening and homesteading journey -

pasture to plate.

The updates are a little thin this week as we watch temps falling and the snow piling up.  Mostly we talk about keeping warm and the successful insemination of our pigs.

In the community we pick up on the Monsanto conversation last week and some new comments about companies like Johnny Seed and Territorial and the internet myth that they buy their seeds from Monsanto.  We also talk about our process for selecting seeds and why we pick the seeds we do. (

In the "We eat Good" segment this week we talk about making pie crusts from lard and how great they really are!
