Crock Pot Sweet Potato & Butternut Chili

Hello and happy belated Thanksgiving everyone! By now your tables have probably all been set, your turkeys carved, and your pies devoured.

Apple Hazelnut Toast

For some reason or another I’ve really been struggling to get into any kind of morning meal routine lately. And honestly, it makes sense, breakfast and I have always had a hot and cold kind of relationship. Before meeting my Carrot, I wasn’t really much of a breakfast person. I was very much a “grab…

The Blur of October + RECIPE: Beet & Carrot Slaw with Currants

In the last 31 days, I have traveled to Door County, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and a little cabin off Lake Arbutus outside Black River Falls. My Carrot and I have celebrated our five year wedding anniversary, celebrated Halloween with friends and trimmed so much hemp. At the farm, we packed the last CSA…

Be Holistic: Herbs for Women’s Health

Women’s health is a subject that I hold very close to my heart.

Slowly, it’s coming– this calm beautiful transition into fall. I love Wisconsin summers. Despite the way they seem to race by every year, I treasure them. I hold them dearly. Every season, we work hard to try and find just a few more minutes away from the farm to really savor them without work because…

Storage Crops + RECIPE: Late Summer Green Bean Salad

This time of year just always seems to sneak up on us in the most wonderful way. We are so laser focused on getting all the fall crops into the ground, harvesting the first of the tomatoes, preparing for Soil Sisters, figuring out how to get away for Kyle’s birthday (more on this later!), and…
