I was blessed as a child and, as children do, I took it for granted. I did not understand the depth of the blessings. I not only knew my maternal and paternal grandparents, but I knew my mother’s grandparents (my grandmother’s parents) and one of my paternal great-grandmothers, Grandma Ellzey, she is the one who named me. I have a rich farming heritage, not because it was trendy like it seems to be today, but because it was just who they were. It is how they provided for their families, how they lived their lives. It is who I am. I wanted to share some of Ma Horton’s kitchen tips. They were handed down to us by her daughters who put them in a family cookbook. I picked the top ten that I use in my own kitchen, to share with you.
- The Farmers Lamp
Hello, My name is Amber Our family tries to live as close to nature as is possible for us in a modern world. Organic farming and Non-GMO food practices are how we live. Life is often chaotic, stressful, and sometimes painful so we want to be a source of inspiration, help, information, and strength for all those seeking to live a more self-sustaining lifestyle. The Farmer’s Lamp was started because so many people were asking us questions, seeking help, and just generally interested in how we live. We have taken up a lesson my grandfather taught me, “There’s as many ways of gettin’ a farm job done as there’s farmers. Ya gotta be willing to listen, help, and learn from ‘em, even if it’s just to see what not to do.” Join us on this ever changing, ever captivating journey.
