Just the sweetest. For those of you who have children, what’s your favorite part about raising them on a farm?
I couldn’t pick just one of these to share so you get them all 😍
Where did my baby go? .
She’s using a fork. She successfully poked each bean and put them in her mouth. .
You guys. I’m not ready for my baby to act like a big kid! .
I guess this means I need to find a new baby. Who has one I can borrow? Or babysit? Or keep? 😂❤️😉

One of the best things that we have loved since opening up the farm stand is the community we have been building. One of our CSA members brought us some vegan, rice paper bacon to try. It was delicious!
This was one of our hopes and dreams when thinking about opening a farm stand. Sharing food and creating community. Seeing that come to life is such a blessing! Can’t wait to see what this year brings us as we continue to expand what we are doing here on the farm.
Just a small picnic spread on our outdoor table. .
Homemade French fries. We used 15 lbs of potatoes. There is enough leftover for another meal. .
That’s about 5 lbs of salad. .
Two pans of baked beans. Approximately 5 lbs beans. .
Four pounds of homegrown beef into hamburgers. And I bought four lbs of beef hot dogs too. .
This is two meals worth of food for us. We did have extra eaters today with my husbands WWII crew of boys here to work on things. .
Food doesn’t have to be a lot of work to be good and filling. And eating outside makes everything taste better!
We survived our first snow at the farm! With as warm as it's been this winter, I didn't think we would get to see any snow. It's melting now and the chickens are celebrating with some time out in the yard ☺️.

When most people look at this pic they wont see anything special but when I look at it I see a wonderful thing.... the beautiful sun coming up and ITS NOT RAINING! 🙂 I am thankful for rain on the farmstead because it fills the catch tanks and makes the pasture grow but we have had so much rain lately the ground is saturated with puddles standing everywhere... the sunny morning is nice #therobbinsnestfarms #farmsteadmorning#farmsunrise#lifeonafarm
Finally posted this essay that I’ve been meaning to write for a while now. Been reluctant to share because I’m a little self conscious about my writing sometimes, but here it is. Embracing the process and putting it out there. All feedback welcome, good and bad. Part two to come.

Woke up early this morning, grabbed some overnight oats 😍 and then went on a little walk✨
Overnight oats are super easy to make and taste amazing🥰 it’s actually so fulfilling that I could only eat half the jar!
•1/2 cup of GF Oats (you can use any you like, I have celiac disease so I have to eat gluten free)
• 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk
•1/4 cup of dairy free yogurt ( I use So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative)
•1-3 drops of vanilla extract
• 1 tablespoon of agave
Let all of these ingredients sit overnight in mason jars. Once ready in the morning throw in a handful of your favorite berries and boom you’ve got breakfast in seconds! My husband and I usually make 4 for each of us so it lasts us four mornings!
It’s always a great idea to use fresh berries but frozen ones work as well! Just don’t add them until the morning! Or do add them and let me know how it is! 🌱
Aaaand another egg post! But I had to because we got our first blue egg of the year! 😃 The other day I noticed some stores have Easter decor out already. Well apparently with this blue egg, my chickens are starting to decorate early for Easter too! And we can't overlook the wonderful speckles on the beige egg. Nice touch ladies! 👌🐔🥚👍
🥚While we’re waiting for our #silkies to hatch (Day 18🥳) our older girls sure are distracting us with these beautiful eggs! 🐣Who else is close to Hatch Day?🐣

**Early Morning Struggles are Real**⠀
I slept crappy AF Sunday night and that totally was reflected in my workout yesterday morning 🥺⠀
The quality of your sleep 😴 or lack thereof can most definitely determine the trajectory of your workout the following day... it did mine.⠀
I did not want to get up and workout yesterday morning but I made myself and had to really push through it BUT I did it and I didn’t die 🤪⠀
This is where your “WHY” for being on your fitness journey has to be strong enough to overcome anything life throws your way including a bad nights sleep 🛏 ⠀
And life will definitely come at ya so be prepared...have a strong “WHY” AND get a good nights sleep 💤 😉 ❤️⠀
Have a great day Y’all 😘
Only a handful of days following the devastating fires in the Adelaide Hills.. Here we were so lucky to be able to shoot our AW20 campaign images at the stunningly beautiful property @netherhill_farm@one_fat_emu ✨🔥 Owner Kate said just an hour before we arrived the threat of fire was again apparent with water bombers circling above their homestead. You could tell, it was eerie and so smokey. Photographer @wmamot said shooting this burnt out paddock it reminded her of autumn in her home town of Poland. 🍂🍁 everything was burnt black but tinges of orange/rust shone through.
I’m happy to say now Mother Nature has been kind and I’ve seen Kate’s insta showing lovely bits of green coming through after receiving much needed rain! 🌿🌱
Tried raw milk for the first time. Still warm, fresh out of the cow. Not gonna lie, I was a little nervous. All the things you hear about pasteurization and why it’s necessary - this is the context that I grew up with. It’s nothing short of brainwashing, even if it is benevolent and well intended. Because we are so far removed from the process of producing food, even the best of intentions can lead us down the wrong path if they are misinformed.
Pasteurization is a “necessary” process to make milk safe. The truth is, that is the case most of the time. It is necessitated by the way we produce milk en masse - industrially, short-sightedly, and without much thought for anything other than volume and profit, animal welfare and sanitation be damned.
The other truth is, it props up a system of producing milk in a terrible way that also results in a severely inferior product. Healthy cows eating what they’re meant to eat, roaming pastures the way they’re meant to roam, these cows produce milk that can be safely consumed when properly harvested and handled. And it is WAY better for you, and tastier too. Yet, it is largely illegal to buy. One day, I hope, we’ll all wake up to the absurdity of these food regulations that exist under the guise of protecting the masses but in practice serve to hinder small producers from being able to compete. Bless the intrepid farmers like Emily and Molly at @pt.ranch who find ways to overcome these obstacles and serve their communities.
Oh, and the milk was delicious and sweet. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed warm milk until now. And, maybe it was the adrenaline from my conditioned fear of the raw milk I was about to drink, but it gave me a surge of energy. Raw milk, the new energy drink? 🤔
Had a great time at the Alpaca Celebration this morning! Who knows what direction it will lead, but loved hearing about a possible new addition to our homestead. Who has taken the plunge? Do you love having alpacas? #homesteadcreatures#lifeonafarm#sundayfunday

Our egg break is over!!! And boy did the ladies bring egg season back with a bang. I just had to take a break from farm chores and do a photo sesh with this jumbo egg that doesn't even fit in the egg carton 😂. I think I know which one laid it and if I'm right, it took her two days 😬. Poor thing! Haven't cracked it open yet, maybe there's two yolks?! .
I haven't been posting a lot lately because things on the farm have been so busy (no farmer can relate to that I'm sure 😉. Totally kidding!!). Between pruning our acres of blackberries all on our own, repairing the decades old trellis and irrigation system, starting seeds, planning and researching our crop rotation system, (whew!) we are learning what being farmers is ALL about! We are also signed up to attend a NC blackberry and raspberry workshop this spring which we are really excited for! But in the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy our ladies giving us eggs again! #excitedforthingstocome
Big thanks to @janoskis_farm for letting us stay on your farm. It has been awesome. •
And big thanks for what you are doing for your community! •
This family has been farming since 1890! In 2015 they entered into the farmland preservation program. Farmland Preservation is a program to permanently preserve farmland meaning it will never be developed into housing plans or building complexes. This program will guarantee a future farm fresh food supply. The program is a partnership between all levels of government... and non-profit organizations with a common goal of saving prime farmland. The Janoski Family used all of the money received from the Farmland Preservation program for the new addition to the Farm Market. Their goal is to assure a way of life for the future generations of the family. And for their community to always have access to fresh food!
My fervent hope is that I will still be making cheese until I am old.......I mean, really hands on cheese making. Cutting curds and knowing, through a life time of experience, the feel of when pH and curd firmness intersect. The perfect point at which the whey should be drained off and the warm curds ladled into moulds. Cheese making is our life's work. For us, it has always been about the pursuit of excellence and making cheeses from our terroir. We could get huge...... milk thousands of animals. Have an impressive automated facility with employees busily going about their work, following a standardised process......but it is not our way......our offering is cheeses crafted over decades of knowledge, by two sets of hands. With meticulous understanding of the intertwining subjects of science, milk and art...... #eatrealfood#foodwinewomen#foodstories #foodwinewomen#womenincheese#simplepleasures#singleorigin#realcheese#rawmilk#rawmilkcheese#terroir#slowliving#allthefeels#lifeonafarm#thecreatorclass
