Caring for your mail order chicks is very different from setting your own hens. But it doesn’t have to be intimidating. I once read, “It’s important to distinguish between the ideal and the good enough reality of doing things.” Of course there’s an ideal way to do things, usually involving more money than most of us want to spend. The old-timers would often put their chicks by the wood stove in a galvanized tub to warm them. So as my grandfather would say, “There’s as many ways of gettin’ a farm job done as there’s farmers….”
- 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.
