Be Holistic: Natural Medicine & Self-Sustainability During a Global Crisis

Guest series by Steph Mullis of Holistic Medicinals Our collective and individual life experiences have all drastically changed in the past few weeks. Many of us are now isolated at home in our own individual groups and families facing evolving relationship dynamics, global heaviness and shifting work patterns (or even unemployment) all on our own….

Pasta with Broccoli, Sausage & Whipped Ricotta

Hello friends. How are you? Are you handling this sudden shifting world around you alright? Are you getting the things that you need? Are you also struggling with differentiating between a want and a need? Are you settling into new routines okay? Are you feeling supported? I have so many questions for you and I…

Homemade Golden Milk

I had hoped to sit down today to write a long post about our greenhouse life– the things we’re planting, the rearranging and bettering of farm spaces we’ve done, the tables we’ve built, and the excitement surrounding the start of our eighth growing season. But suddenly that all feels a little frivolous, a little less…

Celeriac Mash with Brined Pork Chops

It’s been ten days since we landed back in the United States and life has never felt more spacious. Which honestly, I did not expect after being gone for the better part of February. Our days have been equal parts farm doing and farm dreaming since returning home– a balance I relish. We’ve inventoried seeds,…

Perfect Roasted Potatoes

Our farming season begins next week! Our CSA is 55% full! We’re hiring! It’s one week until March, four weeks until spring. We have a bazillion pieces of infrastructure to research, buy and build. I just got home from nearly three weeks in Europe. Lordy lordy do we ever have a lot to catch up…

Collard Butternut Panzanella with Lentils & Seeds

Each year of farming, our recovery period seems to take a little bit longer than the last, and by that I mean that after each growing season it seems to be taking longer and longer to put ourselves back together again.  It’s not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. Each year we…

Jalapeno Chive Biscuits

I discovered the simple wonder of a flaky, homemade buttermilk biscuit a few years ago thanks to Smitten Kitchen. Back then we were making biscuits to slather with butter, jam, honey and/or gravy nearly every weekend. It felt like biscuits had taken over my Instagram and I was sharing a biscuit recipe every couple months,…

Kale Salad with Shredded Turnip, Radish & Mustard Dressing

Hello and happy 2020 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday and most festive start to the new year. We had a perfect blend of social chaos (for some reason we decided to host our first ever holiday party a day before our first of four Christmas-es began), obsessive reflection (I spent at least…

Salted Chocolate Pecan Shortbread

Our family cookie bake took a dramatic turn this December and we stopped doing the big Milwaukee Zauner women all-day bake-a-thon we’ve been doing every single year since I was literally in the womb. There was no sadness or big conversation that led to the change. The tradition just sort of naturally reached it’s end….

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. Family has come and gone, and hopefully you all had a stellar holiday filled with all the good stuff: good food, good wine, people you love, football, cozy sweaters, and so much gratitude….
