Happy New Year!

This year, we’re moving into the New Year slowly, sticking with more family time and less busyness. We had a very cold Christmas for our area followed by the new year feeling like spring, with temps in the 60s! We’re still waiting on the lambs to be born and thinking we may use a marking harness next breeding season so we can have a better estimate of due dates! In 2021 we happened to witness breeding so we knew when to expect lambs but not this time.

We’re still making broth continuously to keep us all filled with the warm nourishment it provides daily, and we’re continuing afternoon mineral rich adrenal cocktails for more mental clarity and energy. Of course we’re also continuing to making sure to support our bodies with enough sleep, and making sure our home is filled with safe products so we’re not adding to our toxin load.

There are more announcements for the month below, including a new free homestead accounting course and a new resource to help you get started with your own website or transform your website if you need help improving it!

One last thought: Instead of focusing on resolutions or a word of the year, this year I’m leaning into obedience. I want to improve my heart in submitting and being refined to serve His purpose for me. I’m looking forward to using the Acceptance essential oil blend that is one of the free gifts this month. Using this blend will help me remember that I want to be more obedient, to be “light and salt.” Read more about obedience here.

The Holistic Homestead Course

We welcomed a number of new students to our course in November and we’re temporarily closing the doors for the course while we focus on serving our current students and enjoying some rest and family downtime.

If you missed your chance to get in during our sale, sign up for the waitlist and be the first to know when we open the doors again! We plan to do this mid-January.

Ewe Lambs coming soon(ish?)

We hope to have ewe lambs ready to go to new homes sometime in March (assuming they are born this month!). If you’re interested in your own babydoll lambs, please sign up to be notified on the product page by clicking on the image below!
