Hello! My name is Kristy and I am the “farm girl” around here! Three years ago we bought this 50 acre run down farm with the dream of living in the country and starting a productive farm from scratch. I am married to my hubby Daniel of 13 years (just how did that happen?!) and we have two crazy kiddos, Hannah and Xander (I KNOW how that happened! 😉 ) To be able to get the kiddos outside to play and learn is a dream come true. We want them to know that hard work pays off. We also want them to learn where their food comes from and how to treat all forms of food, whether it be animal or plant, with respect and just as importantly, humanely.
A little more about me: I am very much an introvert. There is no denying it. I have even been called a Hermit before and it is justified. Hahaha! To choose between going to a gathering of a bunch of people or working in my garden is not a hard choice at all…the garden will win every time!
I currently work full time outside of the home at a large corporation. I enjoy it but my heart is always left on the farm.
I started this blog to share with others that you can cook a yummy home cooked meal WITHOUT being a professional chef. I am just a regular wife, mom, and farm girl trying to feed my family yummy, mostly healthy 😉 , quick meals at home as much as possible.
Join me as we try out all kinds of new recipes that I find in old cookbooks, magazines, and even online. Along the way I’ll throw in tidbits about our farm and garden progress!
