The weather is getting warmer, vacations are being planned, and school is letting out for the summer. Pack up that car and head over to Lehman’s, in Kidron, Ohio (the gateway to Amish Country). There are so many special events this summer, you’ll see why Lehman’s was voted the Best Destination in Amish Country…three years in a row. Continue reading
I do not have chickens. And until recently, my knowledge of chickens consisted of my weekly carton of eggs from the grocery store and an old black and white photograph from my great grandfather. Though the photo is creased and ripped, the image is still clear – a modest chicken coop with a flock of hens. Continue reading

We are pleased to announce that they are visiting again for our Country Living Workshop the last weekend in June, along with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms and many respected local demonstrators. Continue reading
“I am first and foremost a farmer, but not a very ordinary farmer,” states Joel Salatin on his website. “In fact, I’m known as a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic.”
If those sound like fightin’ words, you’re right – because few people are as passionate about fighting for a healthy earth, a healthy farm, and healthy food as this pugilistic planter. Continue reading
Knowing that keeping honey bees was the next endeavor my family and I wanted to take on our homesteading journey, it was time to start learning! I watched YouTube videos, got some beekeeping books, and looked for classes. Of course, Lehman’s had a beekeeping class coming up, so that was a perfect opportunity for me to look at actual equipment, talk to an experienced beekeeper, and take a novel’s worth of notes! Continue reading

This time of the year there tends to be a moment for everyone, a moment that all the comfort of the holidays come rushing back. Maybe it’s the first time you hear Christmas music playing over the radio, and even though you think, “It can’t be time for this yet” you can’t help but feel a little moment of childhood giddiness. Or maybe it’s the first evening the temperate drops and you’re cuddled in a blanket sipping the newest holiday flavor of coffee or tea. Sounds heavenly right? Continue reading

When family and friends come to town, I always ask them what they want to see and do while they’re here. My dad, for example said he wanted to, “see a buggy.”
“Do you want to see 1 buggy? We’ll go to Aldi. Wanna see 20? We’ll drive out 250 for a stretch.” That was an easy one to fulfill. Continue reading
