Now Worldwide! Our on-line farm store is open now and ready for business! We don't have all of the seeds in stock yet as some of them are still growing and ripening outside, but many are ready.
I am gearing up now to make soap and grated M&P soap base.
My two books: "Making Organic Soap at Home" and "Making Organic Wine at Home" are both for sale on the site, too! I have another book at a publisher that is an extended cookbook. It's a large book with 13 chapters with tips on various parts of the home and DIY stuff. The cooking and recipe section is huge. There was a bit of back and forth discussion on the name but I believe it's called, "The Healthy Homemaker's Handbook". I don't know when the first print run will take place. It is suppose to be soon, though. It will be sold in the US. If I want it sold in Canada I will have to find a distributor. I wonder if I can distribute it, myself? Something more to think about. I may sell it in our new farm store, if I can work that out with the publisher.
I am thinking of selling "Shaggy Mane Mushroom Starter" too. Shipped within Canada only, as I don't know how the border would treat it. It will be a liquid that is poured on the prepared ground. Any feedback on this? Would anyone be interested in it? It's just an idea I have had for a couple of years.
Take a look around the new site, use the shopping cart, just don't actually buy anything unless you want to, as it is live. You can cancel any purchase before paying.
We are only shipping to Canada and the US for now, but will be including worldwide shipping soon. I just need the time to write and program the site with the shipping charges for the various areas. Between fence building, working, harvesting, preserving, weeding, seeding, etc, etc, I've had very little time to work on the site.
I did our farm site myself. I would like to add another section called "Web Design for Small Businesses" as a way to help those who are homesteading and trying to make a living at home. It's just an idea. If you think you might be interested in a site like mine in the future, please give me some feedback in this area. How much you would be willing to pay for how many pages, etc. etc. (I just have to be careful not to take on too much at once. ) If I have to quit one of my outside jobs to work from home, then that's just what I will have to do. (It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it) :-)
We are so excited about this new adventure! This is a test year for us. We realize that a business like this needs a few years to grow, but we are hopeful. We know, of course, that the Lord is ultimately in control of every aspect of our lives and we don't know how this will go, but we are trusting Him to work things out the way He wants them to be. "All things work together for good to those who love God... In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy path." This is a verse that we take to heart and depend on, so we acknowledge Him in all our ways. Whatever comes, it will all be for His glory, regardless of the outcome.
