Hi! I’m Brenda and this is my family. If we were to sit around the dinner table with you, we would give thanks to God for our food and we would serve you a gluten-free, and maybe grain free (Paleo or GAPS style) meal. We might tell you the story of how we used to be farmers, but had to sell our farm. This site used to be called “The Well Fed Homestead” andI changed it to “The Well Fed Home” after we hadn’t been farming for a few years. (You might still see “The Well Fed Homestead” on my ebooks and photos, I’m slowly changing these things!).
If you have a farm, we would love to learn what you are doing on your farm. Do you raise chickens? A dairy cow? A big garden? We’d want to hear all about it! (I might even want to write a post about your farm!) And, we’d share with you our passion for supporting farmer’s markets and local, small farms. We hope that you’d enjoy real food with us, and that our meal together might help keep a local farm in business.
I could tell you about the year I went to the Weston Price Conference in Texas and got to hang out with other cool real food bloggers and meet Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride. We’d love to share our ideas of how to bless a farmer, and it would be great to hear your ideas about this, too!
And, we’re always up for talking about adoption, though I don’t blog about it here. God blessed us with 2 biological children (after high risk pregnancies and a 26 week preemie) and 3 adopted children.
If you have kids, ours would love to play with them in our backyard. It’s not big and wonderful like the farm here, but it’s where He has us, and we hope you’d enjoy spending time here with us.
My goal is that you will feel that visiting this blog is like sitting around the table with us. Pull up a chair, make yourself a mocha, and read whatever you like here. Please comment, too! I love friendly comments, they make my day!
Blessings to you!
