Join us November 12th at noon for our Author Chat on Clean Living
Shaye Elliot is one our favorite authors at the Homestead. Her blog and cookbook were great inspirations as we moved into clean living. Shaye and her family began homesteading in Alabama. Several years ago they moved back to the Northwest to be closer to family and are in the midst of creating their dream homestead. We have just about worn out her cookbook, From Scratch. It is our go to primer on cooking real, nourishing, and healthy meals. I can't wait to talk to her about our theme for November, Clean Living. Join us!
Here is an excerpt from Shaye's website:
We live on five acres in North Central Washington and on that land, we raise our dairy cow Sally Belle, a giant flock of laying hens, meat chickens, hogs, sheep, turkeys, and a variety of produce in our large, organic gardens.
We farm to provide our family with as much homegrown food as possible – learning the ways of the land and the ways of the past. We preserve food, stock up the larder for winter, and are ever working towards growing more.The laundry hanging on the line may cause some to think we’re old fashioned. And maybe that’s true. But I’m okay with that. I wouldn’t trade this hard working farm life for anything in the world.
Welcome to our homestead – I hope you stick around! There are peaches to be canned, cloth diapers to be washed, and always plenty of tasty dishes to enjoy.
