And FYI I never look like that. My wardrobe consists of strictly plaid. I wear baseball hats 99% of the time. My eyeliner is always snugged. About the only thing truthful about that picture is 1. I like to go barefoot, and 2. I snuggle chickens.  I’m April, and I’m the voice behind this blog.

My husband Dan, and I farm on 200 acres in Ontario, Canada. We currently raise goats and chickens for milk, eggs, and meat. We garden, forage and barter with only one goal in mind: to eat the best food possible.  Everything we do here is for the food.

Neither of us grew up this way, but with a growing concern with how our food is being produced, and with a love for everything fresh, we started working towards producing our own food with 8 chickens and 2 dairy goats on 3 acres. That was our gateway drug. Our passion for humanely raised meats, authentic cheeses, fresh eggs and produce, and raw milk was born.

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
