get your maude shirts!

I opened a dry goods store as a small fundraiser for the farm. For each shirt you purchase from Cafepress, a few dollars will be donated to Cold Antler. Four shirts buys me a fifty-pound bag of organic chicken feed, so while the markup isn't much, it is a fun way to help out with the load. I'll add designs as I go along, but right now we're starting this off with everyone's favorite jerk, Maude. I promise you'll be the only person at the office with this little number, and it'll be our little inside joke. There are also CAF coffee mugs (of course), hoodies, organic tees, and other odds and ends in there you can also buy if you are so inclined. Design suggestions welcome for other shirt ideas, so if you want a were-rooster sticker or "I give great bread" shirts... let me know. We'll have fun with this.

Shop the store here

Congrats! I totally want the I give good bread tee...

I was thinking about making a shirt for you that said, "Maude- why are ewe so angry?"

Think FarmerGeek'll want a hoodie for Valentine's Day?

"FARMER GEEK" SOUNDS CUTE. READ YOUR BLOG EVERY DAY. IT MAKES ME SMILE. I GREW UP ON A FARM AND HAVE LIVED WITH MY HUSBAND IN TOWN SINCE 1970S.

THANKS FOR SHARING.

I'll put in a vote for were-rooster! (Although it's hard to top Maude.)

Love this. I will buy one as soon as payday rolls around! I read stories about Maude aloud to my husband. He loves how she cares about NO-ONE.
Cafe Press t-shirts are great. I've had one for years and they hold up with many a-wash.

Hi Jenna, I just love your blog. Hubby and I live out in the country with gardens and hunting, but we are just starting to wander back to our original dreams. Thanks for keeping the motivation going. Love that shirt! When the budget allows I am picking up shirt and book.

Love the Maude t-shirt along with the "I give good bread" - too funny!! Lots of luck. As soon as pay day rolls around, I'll try to get something. :)

"I give great bread" - I've been honing my bread making skills this winter so out of every batch of 2 loaves one gets given away. They're good but not great yet, tho.

I'll certainly design more shirts over the weekend!

I think these shirts are great!

I'm going to have to hold off though, because I'm a size that shifts around too much and don't know much about the sizing. I don't worry if it's a 17 dollar shirt but this is a little much for a guess and a mistake.

I'll keep my eye on other things you have, though, because your designs are very nice.

How about:

My office job stinks.
I'd rather be shoveling manure.

Maybe a pic of a shovel or chicken.

Oh yes! I NEEEEEED a manure-shoveling shirt!

I would love a "I give great bread" shirt in the jr ringer style that the maude shirt is in, or the 3/4 sleeve raglan for heading into cooler weather.

Love the blog! I am an addict. I have spent numerous hours on the couch and computer this week catching up on old posts every chance I get. I should be scrubbing my toilet, but reading about your farm life is so much more fun! I will write more later about my farm adventures as a single mother...farm living is where it is at!
