Peaceful Acres Farm

Diane’s blog is Peaceful Acres Farm. Lately Diane has been very busy with the arrival of 8 new lambs this spring and two new yearling ewes in addition to her many other sheep. Diane’s farm is truly a peaceful spot, and Diane is committed to keeping the tranquility and healing spirit alive. Recently, she became a certified aroma therapist. You can read more about Diane’s life and farm by visiting her blog and reading this post, Joyful Journey.


The (mis)Adventures of a Born Again Farm Girl

Mindie joins us from her blog, The (mis)Adventures of a Born Again Farm Girl. On her site Mindie makes you feel like family as you join her anything but everyday life as a backyard farmer. Cooking, raising chickens, ducks, cats, and dogs along with her two boys, sure makes life interesting and funny. I can guarentee that Mindie will have you laughing one minute and near tears the next. The roller coaster ride is worth the stop so please drop by soon. Her latest blog entry can be found by following this link to her pancake mix recipe.
