chickens in the road

I've been paying attention to Suzanne McMinn's Chickens In the Road blog lately, its quite the website. Not just a blog but features, recipes, the works. She recently got a horse and boy oh boy, I wanted to walk down to her farm, sit on the porch, and talk manes and tails. I confess I am not up and up on the farm blog scene but it is enjoyable to find someone that resonates with you. Suzanne seems to have achieved the life I strive for, a self-employed family farmer in this new farm economy. She makes a living sharing her passion and her family with other new and determined farmers, and what could be more fulfilling than that?

A friend of mine tipped me off to Suzanne’s site right before she moved last fall. I love how she describes finding her new place—Sassafras Farm. I’d like to think my farm is waiting for me to come along too. Her recipes are to die for and you have to love her sense of humor—love the barn stories!

I <3 Suzanne, too! She is a fellow WV gal. She just got her studio project funded from Kickstarter - perhaps you could look into that for projects on your farm!

Suzanne is right up there next to your blog, Jenna. I love her farm stories too. She is an amazing woman, writer and farmer.

I've followed Chickens in the Road for over 3 years now. Love Suzanne! I'm glad you found her as well, I had thought many times of sending you a link to her blog. The Kickstarter program she recently used to fund her studio project might work for you in funding the new barn! I credit Suzanne for showing me how to make my own soap and yogurt. I still want to try making my own cheeses too!

Love it! And I agree Heidi & Cassie. Use the Kickstarter for your barn or other things. Backers will benefit and so will you. And the gripers will quit gripeing for like a day :D
