We’re entering into solar winter and I’m spending more time in the kitchen cooking warming foods and increasing our daily broth intake as well as staying on top of our supplements and making sure our wellness cabinet is stocked. We’re also still making sure we’re supporting our bodies with enough sleep, and making sure our home is filled with safe products – from our cleaning supplies to our personal care and supplements. Plus all the cozy diffuser blends for warm, welcoming smells throughout the house!
One new supplement we started recently that is really helping Peter sleep better is an Adrenal Cocktail. Check out my latest blog post if you’d like to learn more about it.
Below you’ll find news about new farm products and new Young Living products, recipes, seasonal tips, diffuser blends, DIYs, free gifts you can earn from Young Living this month and how to use them. It’s a lot, so make sure to save this page to come back to throughout the month and I’ll add to it if I find anything else seasonal that I’d love to share with you!
The Holistic Homestead Course
Follow us on Instagram for a big announcement about the course on Monday, November 21st! We have a fun plan for this year’s small business Saturday.
New Farm Products Launched
We’re expecting lambs around the New Year and hope to have ewe lambs ready to be picked up in March. Depending on how many ram lambs are born, we should also have a fair amount of extra pasture raised meat available next fall. If you’re interested in either, please sign up to be notified on the product pages!
We’re also starting to add Farm Merch! What else would be useful to you besides a calendar? Contact us and let us know!
Get Togethers At the Farm
During the months of November and December we are planning to host gatherings at the farm. Meet the animals, ask questions and join us for some fun seasonal DIY projects that you can take home with you. Contact us for more info if you’re interested!

Warm up your holiday season with the limited time Evergreen Essence essential oil blend! This seasonal favorite will bring the clean, crisp smell of snow-draped forests into your home. Here are some ideas to use Evergreen Essence throughout the season:
- Sprinkle a few drops on logs before burning in the fireplace

Recipes & DIYs
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays, as we welcome our extended family, give thanks for another year of abundance and prepare homemade dishes from food grown on the farm as much as possible. Check out some of our tried and true Thanksgiving recipes, that are mostly dairy and grain free below.
This year we will also be incorporating our raw milk and experimenting with Einkorn since we now know we can all tolerate it! Woohoo! I’ll add any new favorite recipes ASAP for you to try too!
PS The stuffing and cranberry sauce recipes in the link below are always crowd pleasers!
