being a life-long learner // podcast with ELISE GETS CRAFTY

our story is one that surprises even me when i share it out loud. 

this past year & some odd months of owning our farm has been nothing short of absolutely beautiful & exhaustingly hard. 

i think that's probably how all things feel that are worth our time, worth investing in, worth fighting for, worth living within. 

so when elise asked if i would like to come share our story of what it looks like to be a life-long learner & farmer, i 1. squealed & nearly fainted 2. said yes. 

because that's what the farm is for us. it's a classroom for making messy mistakes & if we're lucky enough, sharing a plate of food we've grown with loved ones.  

so, my people, grab a cup of coffee & click right here (i'm episode #24!). share the next thirty minutes with elise & me as we chat about what it looks like to learn on the farm. 

& yes, i've got a southern drawl.

Natalie, I LOVED hearing your story today on Elise's podcast. I always feel inspired when hearing about another person's journey through life but I found myself so in awe of your generous and kind spirit, I didn't want the podcast to end. Thanks so much for sharing, happy gardening! :)

Enjoyed the podcast Natalie! I'd love to hear more about how you are raising your chickens for eggs. We too have a small 4 acre farm-- so I just love following ya'll! And we too just bought our farm in the last year (since June 2013). We of course planted a million fruit trees right away-- we were so excited. My husband also studied agriculture, and so it really is fulfilling his lifelong passion, and in more recent years its kind of become mine as well. Although I find much less joy in weeding :) In any case, we are interested in exploring the idea of having our own eggs. But, so many folks I know have had to rely really heavily on feeds (bad ones). Others I know do a lot of work sprouting their own sunflower seeds etc. Just curious what you all are using-- and how much you typically get out of your flock of 40. I'm a follower on IG too..

You have the cutest voice! I'm from the South and have a southern drawl, but not quite as cute as yours. Ha! It's fun to put a voice with a face. :)
