Winters can be tough on the homestead. Whether you have a small backyard farm or a large ranch, there are a few simple steps you don’t want to miss before the temperatures drop. Here are six steps we are taking to winterize the chicken coop and animal pens. This will ensure the goats and chickens stay happy and healthy this winter.
As the summer temperatures cool off and the leaves begin to change colors, Fall is the perfect time to gather your friends for a Farm to Table dinner party. There is something special about breaking bread outside with your favorite people during the harvest season.
Building a chicken coop is the ultimate “She Shed” for the ladies. The Stenner Farm flock was expanding, and it was time for a new addition to the existing coop.
Hey there, I’m Lana!
Most days you can find me teaching business in the University classroom or at home on the farm. I’m a wife to my Fireman husband and mom to 5 (raised 4 and just added a precious daughter in law)! We do life on a small farmstead in Kansas City, where we raise goats, chickens & bees. We are fixing up our 120 year old farmhouse one room at a time. I run on God’s grace, strong coffee & lots of KC BBQ. I’m wildly passionate about helping others build faith, family, the farm. Thanks for stopping by today. It’s a joy to have you here.
