I’m Laura. Wife to Kevin, the one who takes all my crazy ideas and makes them a reality and Mama to PJ and Shaelyn. I live in Western New York with them, my parents and my maternal grandfather on a 40 acre farm. Our home is uniquely set up, with three individual living areas and a large common space, where we can gather together. We are trying to sustain a life that looks back to earlier times, when numerous generations lived and worked together providing as much for themselves as they could. I’m an addicted knitter, novice spindle and wheel spinner, organic gardener, farmer-in-training, beginning shepherdess, chicken flock manager and dabbler in all things crafty. All livestock on the farm are heritage breeds and we do our best to use mostly heirloom seeds in the hopes of doing our part to revitalize the forgotten. We strive to be kind to the earth and do our best to give back what we take from her. I enjoy cooking but would prefer to bake. I love red wine, chocolate and ice cream and usually consume all three after the children have fallen asleep, at least on the nights when I don’t fall asleep with them. Thanks for stopping by to check out what is new on the farm and I hope you keep coming back to see what’s next.
