Soap making day! You’ve heard of farm to table so here’s farm to bath! 80% of this soap is made from “ingredients” from our own farm. Talk about self sustainability! The frozen buttermilk cubes- is cultured milk from our cow Sara, two eggs- from our flock, and lard (not pictured)- rendered from our own farm raised pigs. The only “store bought” items are the lye and coconut oil. Stay tuned for the big soap reveal! .

Today we have had such a gorgeous & crisp morning! We had a HARD rain last night and most things are flooded around the property but also so very green and lush!🌿🍃
.
We have carrot sprouts popping up {yay!} 😍 but also a ton of weeds {nay!} 😠 lol! So I went around all of the beds and pulled all the weeds this morning. Feeling energized and ready to go for the day! The soil microbes giving me my daily dose of anti-depressants! 🤣
.
Keep bringing the rain Mother Nature! 🌧 We love it! Also, Happy Martin Luther King day everyone, have a beautiful day!

***Service Day Monday for Martin Luther King Day at Unity Farm 10-1pm. Come help pot up trees, prep the farm for the season, take home veggies and commune with nature and community. The more we start creating space for BIPOC folks to have a voice and a seat at the table - (for us this table is in agriculture, health, and true connections to the land) this quote sticks out, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” -MLK. We can’t see the whole staircase yet, but we know why we are climbing. You are a part of that climb, and we thank everyone who supports us, partners with us, learns for us, and inspires us to keep moving forward. #seeyouonthefarm beautiful artwork by @obeygiant #mlkday #serviceday #freedomfarmers #urbanfarming #selfsustaining #selfsufficiency #mlkserviceday #pdx #unityfarmpdx #portlandoregon #bipocfarmers #bipoc #pocfarmers #blackfarmers #oregonfoodbank #communitypartners

Blue Monday!

Banish the blues with your very own #ecosphere and get closer to nature.
An ecosphere is a self-contained Ecosystem within hand-blown glass. They are all unique to one another.
Being closer to nature is a proven way to lift mood. And an ecosphere puts nature right in the heart of your home or workspace.

Raw Milk is such an important part of our farm. We make butter, buttermilk, cheese and soap just to name a few. And we can never forget milk in its purest form. .

Day 1 on our property vs Day 280 😍 We’ve checked so much off our list and yet, I feel like we still have SO much to do.
.
The very next projects include: Fencing in the entire property; planting some sort of tree or bush along all of the fencing to create more privacy; building a larger goat area; building a separate duck area outside of the chicken run; adding gutters on the chicken run; buying rain barrels to collect water for the animals and garden; laying sand/rock in the chicken run; painting the house; putting hardwood in the house and adding a sliding glass door in the living room for easy access to the chicken coop; beautifying the garden with rock and pollinator attractors/flowers etc & putting up a large green house.
.
Phew, that seems like ALOT but analyzing it more, a lot of these projects can be done within a week or two and Kyle and I tend to work really FAST, we are a little impatient 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏼‍♀️ lol! We may even be able to solicit some help from friends with homegrown food, eggs and herb. 🥦🥚🍁🤣

It's been #oneofthosedays--I won't forget you days.
#kaizen sets the pace each day

Our day started with @myresetproject

Endearing people were met, energies were extended, words stacked up as building blocks to grow onward.

Thank you @jamesmwong for connecting the dots ...the way that you do.

Thank you @theSeanway for leading our 4 Dimensions of Fitness. Our workout was completely different, prompting an extra mindfulness regarding how our bodies currently move to how our bodies can move with practice.
@its_delaine_ You're outstanding! Thank you for always showing up, ready to have fun.
AND THANK YOU to my daughter @gcella967 for working into the night with me & then shepherding the Brahvo. Super high fives as always.

If your interested in mealworm farming this is an important tip! I took this video to show what deformed beetles and dead or dying pupa look like.
It's important to wait a few days after the pupa has turned into a beetle before moving it to the breeding drawer. If any beetles show any deformities or die early they won't pass on bad genes. This will make for a healthier colony.
In this video you can see two dead pupa, two deformed beetles, and a healthy newly morphed beetle that's still a lighter color, but free of imperfections. #louddogfarm #selfsustaining #bangorfarms #mealwormcolony #darklingbeetle #coolbugs #culltime #feedyourbirds

So for Christmas I was gifted an aero garden. It's a self contained, self sustaining indoor herb and veggie garden. My Italian basil, Thai basil, and dill are growing like it's no one's business! The Sage, Thyme, and Parsley are still working on catching up. #aerogarden #herbs #indoorgardening #selfsustaining #growbabygrow #basil #sage #thyme #parsley #dill

August 2017, accessing our first steps on our newly purchased homestead 🌄 (Ignore my dorky comments 😜)
We've accomplished so much since this first video, it reminds me to step back and appreciate all we've done in such a short time with very little time and money. We now have running water, 5+ acres cleared, a forest plan in place, and an agriculture plan starting. Next steps are to plant the forest, build a high tunnel, get septic in, run power, and get a foundation poured for a cabin. Step by step we grind 💪 (and no we still don't own a dozer 😪 )

We spent years going to bed with our last words to each other "I love you, sleep well, and I want property" 😏
Now we go to bed every night saying the same except the last part is "I want to LIVE on the property"
Every waking moment we spend planning, penny pinching, and working to make this next part of our dream a reality. Now that was have our 2 month old to think of, our fire is blazing to get out of the city and give him the homestead life we've been dreaming of.
Will it be easy? Probably not. Will it be worth it? Absolutely! 🙏
