Gorgeous Guinea Fowl

Not everyone here at One Ash agrees with me, but I love our Guinea Fowl!  They are unique looking, and funny creatures that are some of the best workers we have. It's a great time of year to find keets in your local feed store or online.  Or if you prefer, get some Guinea eggs and incubate them to hatch your own fun loving Guinea Fowl!

Spice Pantry Essentials

It's always fun to look at all the spices in that grocery store aisle. Buy how many of them do you really need for everyday cooking?  Here's my list of what I always keep on hand-

Farm Updates

It has been a crazy busy time here at One Ash Farm & Dairy! We are enjoying the warm weather (it's been in the 70s and 80s here this week!) and being able to get outside and get things done! We are planning & prepping our garden, incubating chicks, welcoming new baby goats into the world and just enjoying farm life!

Chocolate Chip Delight

When we came in the other night everyone was tired.  The goats had all had their babies and the day had been long.  Chocolate was definitely in order, and this super easy and quick recipe was perfect! (and of course we enjoyed it with a big glass of cold raw milk from One Ash Farm & Dairy ! )

Book Review- The Soup Club Cookbook

Winter is almost over, but that doesn't mean that soup season has to end!
This fun, inventive book has some terrific recipes for year round soups
and all the side dishes to go along with both cold and hot soups.
As you are planning your garden, this cookbook is a great
companion.  What sounds better than growing your own soup ingredients?!

This cookbook, written by a group of soup loving friends, 
will introduce you to the idea of sharing what 
you make with friends and community.  There are creative ideas
for the use of ingredients, freezing, storing and using
the fun soups you make.

Spring Is On The Way


Even though this has been one of the coldest weeks this year, I am convinced that spring is just around the corner.  We have been hearing the birds in the trees as they start to migrate, there have been red breasted robins searching the yard for food, and the lambs have been born and are hopping around the pasture.  The chicks are hatching and cheeping. Soon we will see the first purple martin scouts looking to return for the summer. The apple trees, daffodils and the first dandelions are blooming. What signs of spring are you seeing in your area?

Incubating Eggs

There is nothing quite as exciting as the cracking of an egg when a newborn chick is coming into the world.  I always enjoy setting up my incubators and waiting for those little "cheeps".
