Hi to you.....

Hi to you...

Welcome to the blog of Apple Prairie Farm. I want to show you around our farm, maybe inspire you to try to raise a few animals or even put some seeds in a raised bed in order to have some homegrown goodness! The food we grow on our farm is flavorful and as good as it gets! When our family sits down to enjoy a meal that we raised on our farm, we look at each other and know that we have to keep doing what we are doing. Can't find this much flavor in the grocery store!

In the winter every now and then I enjoy doing a large homestead project. We live in some very cold tundra, therefore hanging outside for long amounts of time is not an option for me. That's why homestead projects take place inside the house in the winter. Besides, I a...

Why would someone want to start a farm? We started our farm on accident. We just wanted a few fresh eggs from a handful of chickens living in the backyard. Nobody warned us that it is a slippery slope! Slippery Slope that we are still sliding down! We had no idea how e...

 Every late fall, I feel so worn out. I am so ready to hibernate! Bring on the movies, books and the hot coffee! I don't want to do anything or go anywhere! I want to cook and enjoy the delicious food that I have been growing, preserving and freezing! For months, I hav...

There are ways to tell if you might have fallen down that slippery slope that brought you down that path that is called homesteading! That slippery slope could have all started with getting a couple chickens for some fresh eggs! Maybe you bought a shovel! Perhaps you e...

 I believe that one of the first steps for us on our homesteading journey was building our chicken coop. Actually maybe the first step was being at a friend's house and she cooked me a fresh egg. I could not believe it was an egg! Is this an egg? How can this be an egg...

I have made only one type of cheese. Why only one, you ask? The reason is that this recipe is so easy! I would love to learn how to branch out and try making some hard cheeses, but that would mean I would have to wait for the cheese to age! Which means, I will be that...

This last summer we tried a fun new way to make corner posts. I don't think it took any longer than the corner posts that you dig three holes 4 feet down. I am a little tired of seeing our hard work of fence posts push up out of the ground when the frost heaves the pos...

 This post is in remembrance of one of the best beagle farm dogs that ever lived. We brought Daisy home on December 17th, 2001. She roamed this farm like she was the boss! It was her, against the wild animals! She made sure no one messed with her farm critters. She did...
