Grow More – Shop Less – Live Better

You are invited to join the Farm Fresh for Life – Membership Community

I grow food, cook from scratch, tap maple trees, shear sheep, milk cows, make cheese, love pigs and am basically a lunatic who wants to produce all her food…

Raising food is more than a hobby.  It is a life changer.  If you want to grow your own food you are about to go on an incredible journey to restoring health, feeling better and lots of energy.

If you’re ready – you can do it and I can help!

Do you love that feeling you get when you feed your family a meal that was raised, harvested or hand-made from your own piece of land?

You know the feeling…

The feeling you get when you pull a loaf of fresh-baked bread from the oven.

Don’t you love it when you look at the dinner table and can proudly announce, “I grew that.”

Or perhaps you wish you could grow your own food? You have the desire, the commitment, and the perfect spot, but you aren’t sure how to begin or where to start.

You are at the right place!

I’ve been raising and preparing all my own food for years & I can show you how to do it too.  We provide easy step-by-step methods, expert tips and proven practices to help you succeed.

Want to expand your garden? Raise a pig? Free-range some chickens?  What about a milk cow? 

Imagine having fresh, milk every day, fresh eggs from the coop and bacon that you raised!

We have a Membership Community just for you!

Premium Members get everything, and I do mean “everything.”  It is hard to describe what is hiding on the other side of this little blog.  Raw homesteading, how-to videos, breadmaking classes, eBooks, premium posts, hundreds of recipes, menu plans with shopping lists, and even access to our new Members-Only site “Just Tell Me What to Cook.”

A membership is only $12.99 $10 and you get so much

We are celebrating our 1 year anniversary of the new site.  Memberships are on sale!  

Only 10 bucks!  

  • No registration fee.
  • No annual fees.
  • It’s only 10 bucks.


LOL!  I know!

Here’s a short video on why I started Memberships & what you’ll get if you join-

Readers were asking for more information on home breadmaking, sustainable living, how-to videos, and even personal support.  I knew that a membership program could give me the ability to do that.  For more on why the Memberships started go here.

Howdy!  I’m CJ (Actually, it’s Candi – but I hate my name).

I’m not just eating clean foods, I am growing them.  Eating clean food has changed my life.  In 2016 I decided to only eat food I raised for 101 days.  It was the most amazing adventure.  I lost weight, changed my health, and feel better than ever.  I’ve been addicted to real food ever since.

In addition to growing nearly all our food, I am a homeschooling mom to 4 great kids, own a pawnshop with DH, and I do lots of insane farm chores.

If I can raise food and get it on the table – you can too!

In addition to eating lots of incredible food:

  • I am a recovering sugar addict
  • I am a Master Gardener, Certified Teacher & Real Food Advocate
  • I raise livestock, sheer sheep, love pigs, and milk cows
  • I avoid the center isles of supermarkets like the plague

Not Just Another Website…

When you become a member, you are joining a community of people who want to grow more, shop less, and see animals on farms and pastures instead of buildings, feedlots, and cages.

In addition to showing you the ropes, I am cruising through the towns and counties spreading awareness and teaching people that food matters. I teach free classes, volunteer at schools, host farm tours, serve at the State Fair, visit senior centers, support FFA, belong to Kentucky Cattleman, 4-H, and more.  (More on community service here)

When you Join – You get so much!


We are all running out of time.  It’s time to start living our dreams.  It’s time to teach our families where food comes from.  It’s time to start filling our bodies with nutrient-dense foods.

I realized a while ago that eventually, my food choices were going to catch up with me.  We can’t just continue eating dead, processed foods and expect to enjoy great health forever.

I also realized that I wanted to know how to live without grocery stores.

We are never too old to learn something new.  

If you’re excited about living in the healthiest, most fulfilling way possible you’re in the right place. 

Members will Learn:

  • How to grow some or all of your food
  • How to Keep pastured animals
  • How to begin your homestead journey
  • How to farm more sustainably (keep it on the farm)
  • How to feed livestock for less
  • Why raw milk is not the Devil
  • Why homemade bread with fresh flour is a nutritional powerhouse and storebought bread is junk food
  • How to eat well, be slimmer and feel better
  • and SO MUCH MORE!

Say Goodbye to DIETING 

One of the best-kept secrets of homesteading (and eating real food) is the weight loss factor.  When you only eat what grows somehow, your pants fit better and you have more energy.  Eating like a farmer has its perks.  You can eat it all (lard, butter, bacon, maple syrup, fresh flour, steaks, potatoes, everything) and, as long as a farmer grew it organically it will be healthy for you.

You should Try it  🙂

You’ll get Free eBooks –

Get the Bunny Handbook ($1.99 value), Raising Backyard Pigs ($2.99 value), and How to Eat free when you join.

You’ll Get the Breadmaking Course –

This is a 9 Module Breadmaking Video Course ($149.00 value) that will introduce you to the ‘why’ grinding grains is phenomenal and how to do it.

You’ll Get all the menu plans ($19 value) – 

There are menu planning sites who charge more than we do and all you get is 4 meals.  Here you’ll get the menus along with everything else!  No extra charge.

You’ll Get all the guides, videos, premium posts, recipes, and the perfect series to get started:  “Best Tips to Begin Your Homestead Journey.”

That’s over $170 of value for ONLY $12.99 $10

Once you join you will have access to everything and receive a weekly update from me with all the latest goods for members only.  You’ll never miss a post or video.

AND you will get the help you need on your farm and in your kitchen.

Think of me as your personal, homesteading help-line.  🙂


Come on – Give it a try

I’d love you forever if you would.
