Do you know that person who lives in a tiny duplex in town and grows their own food in their tiny back yard? No? Don't have one of those huh? Well we use to be that family until we were blessed with almost 2 acres of our own. Now not only do we hand blend tea on our farm using the best that Oregon has to offer but we make an effort to grow as much of our own food as possible.
From eggs, to lamb to produce and beyond. This week we are taking you around our farm to show you what has been 'springing' up! Thanks for stopping by and checking out our virtual tour. Maybe some day you will be growing your own food too! We would love to have you join our journey!
Do you already garden or raise animals for food? Share with us in the comments, we would love to chat about it!
It's spring time down on the farm and that means the spring garden is in full swing. Learn how to trellis peas (or green beans) in a poly tunnel in this weeks video. What is tea time without a good spring salad that includes peas?!
Howdy howdy from down on the farm! The sun is starting to make appearances here and there which is making us think of our favorite sun tea! We love sweet tea, our sweet down on the farm is some local raw honey and our favorite tea to brew in the sun is High Desert Hibiscus. Here is our video of the week with a quick demo on how we brew tea in the sun.
10 lbs of dark chocolate and the best dried Royal Ann cherries in the area! That is what takes us on this weeks Youtube adventure as we pick up product for our farm store. Check out how the cherries we use in our Cherry City Chai tea are dried and then the other special treat that this lovely farm makes with them! If you happen to be in the Eola Hills area in Oregon just outside of Salem make sure you stop by Cherry Country to take their cherry and chocolate factory tour! We are very thankful to Celeste and Marsh for giving such a great tour and letting us film!
Our chickens to new grass that is! Check out the work they have been doing to get our garden spot ready, what it takes to move them around and our new baby lambs.
Were SO excited to be back at the Salem Saturday Market and we thought we would give you a sneak peek of what it takes to get there, set up and home again! Along with some of the other fantastic vendors at the market, check out this weeks video and take a ride with us to the market!
Our yard is over taken with black berry leaves, here in Oregon they are invasive and usually a pain for many a land owner. They grow wild on the side of the road, they over take everything if not kept at bay. We have taken that problem and turned it into a solution by using them in one of our most popular teas. Check out this weeks YouTube video on how we use many of the wild edibles and weeds in our yard!
Howdy there! We get lots of questions about our greenhouse/hoop house/ poly tunnel when it shows up in the background of pictures, videos and in conversations. So we thought this week that we would give you a tour of our poly tunnel. We grow all four seasons in our poly tunnel and the bulk of our veggies for our family of 6. Come watch us grow!
Last week we built a portable chicken coop and this week on our Farm Channel we are putting the chickens in their new area surrounded by electric poultry netting. They will till, fertilize and debug the space for our future tea garden. Check it out below!
The abundance of rain this week on the farm kept us working inside the house and inside the barn. It proved time to get the chicken coop done though and one step closer to getting our herbal tea garden in the ground. Check it out on this weeks Youtube video!
