I’m April, and I have a small backyard farm on 3 acres in Ontario, Canada. On this land my husband and I raise laying hens, dairy goats and we garden. Our goal is to produce as much food ourselves as possible.

During the summer I love to shop at our local farmers markets and wander through the Amish market for treasures that I can’t grow myself. I love the freshness and the flavor that fresh local food has, and I do my best to incorporate that into my kitchen.

My favourite things to eat are cheese, bacon, and chocolate and I have no shame in admitting that. I also love all things gluten, a good glass of wine, and I cook everything with a ton of butter. I try to keep it simple and as delicious as possible.

This blog is where I share the process of our farm to table eating. I wrangle goats, chase chickens, and try to pick the strawberries before the wild birds get to them. This is our story, the good and the bad.

Welcome to our farm. Please stay for dinner, there is always room at the table.


Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands. So that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. – 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
